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.
