In examination of the Patterson Bigfoot film, at some juncture, it becomes pertinent to try and establish exactly the nature of what it is that we are looking at on the film. Many claims have been made about persons being “in the suit”, but a close examination eliminates that. So what are the indicators and pointers in the film that might give a person a clue? Let’s look at this very short clip. This is from the earliest part of the filming and it demonstrates that Patty is carrying something in her left hand i.e. the hand opposite the viewer. This object, to students of history of this great nation of ours, is recognizable and its presence in the hand of the Sasquatch speaks volumes about the nature of the subject. The object is the utilitarian tool of choice for many generations of peoples living a subsistence life in the wildernesses of North America and for that part all over the world. It is the lowly “digging stick”. This tool is found in the arsenal of primitive man and is still in use in many parts of the world today. It is a curved stick with piece of bone or antler attached to the end to take the wear and tear of digging, prying, beating trees, or wielded for a weapon. Look at this clip and you can follow this object. This is why the film must be examined to the point of minutia so that if this subject is in fact a primitive person, then the rights of the uncontacted must be asserted.
This clip is filtered for high contrast and gives the viewer a good look at the hair along the side of the head as it blows around in the strong canyon winds.
This file begins with a filtered image that shows a large strand of hair swinging out and over the ear. The tip of the hair strand has what appears to be a braid…or at least it has a herringbone pattern in it. If not…then certainly a dread lock of sorts. This hangs over the ear for a few frames and then falls back into place covering the ear. This file should make it easier to follow.
In several instances a type of hair arrangement can be seen on the film subject. This arrangement resembles a ponytail. Watch here as the hair flips up from a sudden head move.
