Nahanni Butte is known for the Nuk-luk, a Bigfoot-like creature that’s a little more Neanderthal Man than ape. It was first seen in 1964 by several people: John Baptist, many other men, and a boy, Jerry. The creature is large and over 6 feet tall with long hair and a foul smell. Some researchers say they have lived in the area for thousands of years. Another local legend here centers on a hidden or lost gold mine and many unsolved deaths and disappearances.
