Friends of Sasquatch started in 2006 as a research partnership formed to explore methods of developing contact with Sasquatch, including communication, either audible or via subtle energies. Friends of Sasquatch supports all efforts toward compassionate protection of the species.
In 2013 the original partnership was dissolved, and this site is now my project. I’ve considered other approaches to ownership of this site, for example, making it a business, or a non-profit organization, or a permanent research encampment. But for now, I’m not ready to expand.
In 2015 I made the decision to use this site to interview and/or write about the real friends of Sasquatch – the people who have dedicated their lives to learning about them.
I’m Linda Jo Martin, a novelist and the blogger at Bigfoot Sightings. I lived in Happy Camp, CA for 13 years and began my research about Bigfoot in 2005. My main reason was that I wanted to know if my town had any better Bigfoot stories than the ones I’d already heard. We had Bigfoot statues and businesses named after Bigfoot, but most people knew nothing about any real link to Bigfoot in or around Happy Camp.
My research helped uncover information about numerous Bigfoot sightings in the area. Happy Camp is in the center of the Klamath National Forest and has been known as a Bigfoot ‘hot spot’ for many years. Now I’ve compiled the sightings to prove that claim to fame.
In 2013 I moved to Northern Idaho near Coeur d’Alene, and continue my Bigfoot research efforts in this area.
My initial intention with Friends of Sasquatch was to develop tutorials on techniques for communication with Bigfoot and to amass and study published information in this field of research. I take the somewhat unconventional approach of believing that communication through subtle energies is possible and worth studying. I am also interested in all audible and physical communication research.
I believe it is possible to use our sixth sense to detect the presence of a Bigfoot, communicate with it via subtle energies, then make visual contact.
I’ve traveled along a lot of the old logging roads in the forests in Northern California. I believe I’ve heard them and sensed out their habitat areas in sections of the forest not far from Highway 96. In a few cases my instincts were proven correct when other witnesses, not associated with our team, had unplanned sightings in areas I’d sensed were Bigfoot habitat areas.
Protection of Sasquatch
I am adamantly a no-kill researcher and consider the Sasquatch species to be related to human beings. The California state law contains a provision detailing exactly what species can be hunted in the state. Sasquatch is not on that list. Therefore it is illegal to kill Sasquatches in the state of California. I believe every state should have some kind of legislation that protects Sasquatches from human violence.
