SO -- WHAT IS A WINDIGO?  

A Windigo is a half-beast creature in the legends of the Algonquian peoples of the Great Lakes region. The monster can possess people and gets particularly hungry in the winter, hiding in snow banks ready to pounce on innocent villagers during their winter walks and hunts. Most tales say the Windigo rides with the winter wind, howling inhuman screams; others that it is made of ice and cold, or least that its heart is. Imagine an agressive Sasquatch that loves to eat humans... and that gets especially hungry in the lean months of our long Wisconsin winters!  To hear more Windigo stories, stay after for stories around the bonfire.
