Incursion Into Wendigo Territory

  • Jackson Eflin Ball State University


This article explores modern urban legends that appropriate the idea of the Wendigo, a spirit
from various Native American tribal legends. These urban legends are informed by a cultural
guilt of the dispossession of Native American territories, but the victory of monster over protagonist demonstrates the futility of these attempts to comprehend histories of atrocities.
