U is for Urayuli

Name: Urayuli (means "hairy men")

Type: hairy humanoid

Origin: Native American mythology of southwestern Alaska Description: The Urayuli reside in the forests of southwestern Alaska near Lake Iliamna. They supposedly stand 10 feet tall and have shaggy fur and glowing eyes. They're thought to make high pitch cries, resembling a loon's. They have very long arms, which reach their ankles. They behave peacefully.

Interesting Facts: They seem to be very Bigfoot/Yeti-like. It's fascinating how many cultures have these kinds of creatures. The Urayuli are thought to be children who were lost in the woods, particularly at night, and transformed into this kind of creature. Probably another tale to make children behave.


What other "U" beings do you know of?
