Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is the name given to an ape- or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term Sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets.
