Similar to most sasquatches, I grew up in the depths of the forest with my parents, eating berries and drinking from the streams. My mother and father cared for me deeply, and always taught me to be on guard for humans. As a child, I did not know what humans were, for I never saw one, but I was always paranoid that a human would come and steal all of what was ours. When I became of age my father showed me how to hunt, so that I could feed myself when necessary. Every chance we got, my father and I would go hunting, so that we could have meat to sustain us.

Many people in the Hmong culture believe in multiple souls that reincarnate. Although for this to occur, these individuals believe that an honored deceased member must have a proper burial to enter the spirit world in a positive way. Funerals in the Hmong culture last for many days, and the more revered the deceased is the longer the funeral may be. Animal sacrifice is a common ritual performed at a Hmong funeral and the animal is used to provide food for the people attending the funeral (Purnell, 2014, p. 246).
