Alaska’s Otterman/Kushtaka

Spread the love

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys talk about a recent Texas witness at Hutto who reported watching a sphere shaped UFO near ground level emitting a green light that appeared to be searching for something, then how scientist’s still don’t know what causes that knuckle cracking sound. After the break Cam gets into the unusual Alaska legend of the Kushtaka or Otterman! The Tlingit and Tsimshian peoples, indigenous inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest Coast of the United States and Southeastern Alaska, have a robust folklore surrounding a mythical and maniacal trickster race called the Kushtaka, which roughly translates as “land otter people”, a shape-shifting species of otter that is rumored to spend a lot of its time trying to lure unsuspecting humans away from their homes in order to turn them into more Kushtaka. Finally, after the second break Kyle brings up the latest information regarding a missing Nazi Ghost Train found in Poland. Thanks for listening to Expanded Perspectives.
