The Wendigo

Today the beast I shall educate you on is the Wendigo. This creature is a spirit believed in by the Algonquian North American Native people. It is a malevolent cannibalistic spirit that roams the north. It appears to be a tall, pale skinned, and cold blue eyed human. It is extremely thin, because it is dead and although it is always searching for human flesh to feed on, it can never be filled. It was believed that anyone who partook in cannibalism, the greatest taboo, would become a wendigo. This was one of the most feared creatures in Algonquian folklore.
