Subject: The Bigfoot Ki'ho'sa. April 14, 2009.
As best I can find out, I am part Choctaw Indian.
My Grandmother was a half-breed, my mother was one-
quarter and I guess I'm I'm one eighted. Back in
Texas most people don't like to be called an American
Indian because some of their kin-folks were probably
scalped by them. I get along great with the Aloni
Indians and they treat me as one of their own.
Subject: An Interview with Khat Hansen Choctaw
Medicine woman reveals details of Bigfoot encounters
By Brent R-ynes
Kath Hansen explains that she is a Choctaw medicine
woman, a `S-ul Eater (a type of empathic healer) whose
training as a medicine person began back at the age of
three. Since age five, she has encountered various
spirit beings. One of these (the main subject of this
interview) is known by her people as Steyemah (what we
For more information, visit Kath Hansens website:
Editor: To begin with, how do you wish to be
Khat Hansen: My name is Khat Hansen. I am an American
Choctaw Indian Medicine woman and So-l eater (it is a
type of empathic healer). I have retired from the
archeology field and now live quietly in the Nevada
Editor: You have written in a blog that you've been
interacting with Ki'ho'sa since age five. You explained
that Ki'ho'sa means Bigfoot.
You state that he's neither animal or human, and can
do very incredible, if not downright supernatural
sounding things. Is Ki'ho'sa a Native American term?
Khat Hansen: Yes, it is Choctaw. That is not exactly
correct. Ki'ho'sa means "to forget (me)" in Choctaw. It
is the name he has named himself. I have only given him
this name as he gave it to me when I was 5 yrs. old. He
said that is what I was to call him. He is neither
animal or human. He is Ste'ye'mah or Bigfoot. I do not
call them sasquatch as that is a made up Indian word.
It is a conglomeration of words to create one word.
Ki'ho'sa calls his kind "my people" or "such as we". He
has never used anything else. The Bigfoot are capable
of doing many things that you or I cannot do but at the
same time we are capable of doing things they cannot
do. It is a balance between us in a way. They do not
choose to know our way of living. For example, they do
not cook or read, (JW I have heard of one case where
a certain Bigfoot leared how to read and write.) but
they are capable of drawing and like music. They do
not play music but will play with the instruments
per se. They do however mimic bird whistles and song
and have used them many times as a form of
entertainment. I have had them steal mouth harps and
slide whistles but have never heard them play them. I
think they took them because they saw us playing them
and were curious as to how they work. If I am playing
the guitar or sitar they will come down and sit quietly
in the bushes or around the area. When they are done
they will leave the area and that is all I ever know.
They do not tell me if they like it or experience joy
or sadness. I do know that they experience anger and
rage. They can also forgive, these are the emotions
that I have first hand knowledge of with Ki'ho'sa and
Editor: Does being Native American open you up more
to such experiences, do you think?
Khat Hansen: Maybe, maybe not. What I think opens me
up to such experiences is the fact that I have been
taught to respect and believe in all forms of life. I
was taught that I must accept what I am being told and
shown by legends and elders and other people what is
true. To accept with my heart and mind that what I am
being allowed to experience is a gift. I was told at an
early age that not everyone can see the Bigfoot. THEY
choose who will see them and what capacity it will be.
For Ki'ho'sa to have chosen me was a very sacred gift
to myself and my people. For him to interact with me
over the years has been an even more invaluable gift.
He has taught me much about myself and acceptance
of things that I do not understand or comprehend.
Editor: Please tell us what you can about Ki'ho'sa
and what your own first-hand experiences with him have
conveyed to you about what sort of creature he is.
Khat Hansen: Ki'ho'sa is a s-irit being who can
assume a flesh and b-ood body. Which simply means: He
is a being/creature that has access to this world. He
comes and goes of his pleasing. This is why sometimes
people say they have found footprints coming from UNDER
a small rock and disappearing into a small scrub bush
with nothing surrounding it or just stopping in dirt
and not continuing anywhere.
He can shift and leave this realm/world when he
wants. He is not limited to being here as are we. He
has different gifts that he uses, that we humans have
not learned or been given. For instance, Ki'ho'sa can
mindspeak to people. It is a very unusual gift that
took me a long time to get used to. By this I mean he
can put pictures into your head and a fleeting voice
that is almost like an echo. He uses this to
communicate and get his meaning across to me. It is
almost like flashcards strung together to create a
meaning. When he does this though, it causes me
terrible pain in the form of migraine type headaches
and nosebleeds that sometimes last for days.
They also are able to cause humans and animals to
feel certain feelings. It took me a long time to
understand what this process is and a name for it. It
is called infrasound or thought blasting. They use it
to cause fear, terror, panic, peace, confusion or calm.
It is a mind weapon of sorts. They use this when they
are feeling threatened by humans to make us leave their
area. In this way they will not have to physically
attack us although if it did not work they would then
resort to leading the person away or chasing them away.
If that did not work they would attack. They are
capable of anger and evil if they choose. They are
not the creatures in Harry and the Hendersons. They are
very intelligent and cunning. This is not a human
being. Nor is it an animal. It is Ste'ye'mah or
Bigfoots do not age as humans do. I always say that
he is about 175 years old according to my understanding
of their aging process. They age much slower than
humans. It has something to do with their metabolism
being different. This is also why when people have shot
at them or hit them with vehicles it does not appear to
hurt them. It really does hurt them, but it may take
weeks or months for the wounds to manifest.
This is why people have seen them just walk away from
woundings without marks or blood on them. This is also
why certain Bigfoot are seen over and over again for
long periods like the yellowtop Bigfoot. He has been
in that territory for almost a century... he does not
age like us so it is a short period of time to him.
They have many different gifts such as great speed..
fast as a car when they choose. The ability to
become invisible (which has been explained to me as
"wrapping the light around themselves"). I have
pictures of this on my website. Great inhuman strength.
And the ability to camouflage themselves into different
forms, i.e.: stumps or trees that people do not realize
are Bigfoot until they actually see it walk away or go
right up to it and realize it is a Bigfoot.
Bigfoot are keepers and trackers of time here on this
earth. They are waiting for man to finish his time
here. Then they will resume the keeping of the earth.
They will begin again and help it to heal and overcome
what damages we humans have done. They do not hold
anger against us for doing the things that we have done
to this planet. They just understand that it is our
nature to do the things that we do. When their time
comes they will again help the earth and humans and
animals to balance and accept each other. For now they
are here, watching and waiting.
Editor: Could you tell a little more about your
Khat Hansen: I am a trained archeologist that worked
in South and Central America for over 20 years. My
field of expertise is Pre-Columbian Civilizations.
Editor: I understand that your first Bigfoot
encounter was in Oregon, by the way?
Khat Hansen: Yes, this is where I first met Ki'ho'sa.
When I was 5 years old we were deer hunting and the
adults had left me in camp by myself. This was a
different time back then when children were safe and
able to be left alone. I was playing around the camp
area with my Barbie dolls (I had brought two with me)
when I heard a crying sound. I listened and kept
hearing it. I thought another child was left alone in
their camp and was lonely. I looked for the sound and
found it a ways into the forest. I came up to a fallen
cedar tree and there sitting on the ground next to it
was a hairy child about as tall as myself. It was
crying and rocking back and forth. I just thought it
was an ugly child.
Maybe it lived in the woods and that is why it was so
dirty? Anyway when it realized I was there it stopped
crying and just stared at me. I sat down across from it
and took my Barbie dolls out of my overall pockets and
began to play with them while talking to the hairy
child. I was asking it all sorts of questions and it
finally got up and walked over to me. I offered it a
Barbie and it chose the blonde one and we sat there
looking at them and playing with them. Awhile later the
hairy child stood up and began to whine and kind of
bounce up and down and seemed to be really excited
As I stood up all of sudden there was this great big
WHUMP! and there landed right in front of me the
biggest, hairiest, ugliest thing I had ever seen. It
was a male Bigfoot and it was growling this bone
jarring growl and grabbing the hairy kid. I kind of
screamed and p-ed my pants and backed away all at the
same time. He pushed the hairy child back away from me
and put himself between us and just looked at me. I
started to scream really loud and turned and ran back
to the camp. I hid in the tent the whole time until the
adults came back. I told my dad what had happened and
he went with me to see the area and the Bigfoot.
All he found were tracks. I was very upset because the
hairy child had taken my blonde Barbie doll when it
left and my dad refused to buy me another one because
they were -.00 dollars.
