The West's first 'Bigfoot'

TODAY 'Bigfoot' is synonymous with an elusive creature of unknown origin.
However, more than a century ago and more than a half-century before the "Bigfoot" name would be coined for the Sasquatch creature, there was another "Bigfoot."
According to the Twin Falls News newspaper of Jan. 26, 1906, a Native American nicknamed named "Bigfoot" was a renegade who led a Piute band of Snake Indians on area settlers.
