Shapeshifting 'Skitini' Monster Seen by Native Boys in Tecumseh, Oklahoma


3 Seminole boys in Oklahoma encounter a 'Skitini' monster while riding their bikes. They are able to see it on night vision later that night.



I recently received the following account:

"Back in circa 2006, I was 14. My uncle was visiting. He was 17 at the time. It was us plus my little brother, who was 7, home alone. We lived in some housing editions in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. There is a side street in front of our house with a street light just past the middle of the block.

It was about 8 or 9 pm and we decided we were going to ride our bicycles for bit. My uncle had his bike out first and took off up the side street. I was helping my brother with his bike. I seen my uncle turn around real quick and yelled at us to go back inside. Once all three of us were back kinside with the door locked. He said he saw a Stikini monster. A Stikini is a Seminole nation folklore monster. They are shapeshifters usually taking the form of a large owl or a Native American person. There are some stories where they shift into other animals or humans they killed.

My uncle brought a cassette camera recorder with him when came to visit. It had night vision capability. He brought it out and zoomed in all the way. After a few seconds we seen a really large owl hop under the streetlight. It continued to hop and look around for about a minute then turned around. The Stikini spread its wing and took off. The wing span covered the entire width of the road. For perspective three cars could fit side by side from curb to curb. I wish my uncle would have brought a cassette to record the event." EM

NOTE: Here's the information I found on this cryptid.

Name: Stikini
Tribal affiliation: Seminole
Alternate spellings: Stigini, Ishtikini
Pronunciation: stee-kee-nee
Also known as: Man-Owl
Type: Owl spirit, monster
Related figures in other tribes: Cipelaq (Maliseet), Big Owl (Apache)

The Stikini are sinister monsters from Seminole folklore. Originally they were evil witches, who transformed themselves into owl-beings. By day they still resemble Seminole people, but by night, they vomit up their souls (along with all their internal organs) and become undead owl-monsters that feed on human hearts. In some Seminole communities speaking their name is thought to put you at risk for turning into one, so Stikini stories are only told by certain medicine people. In other communities, they have been spoken of more casually as bogeymen to frighten children.


Apparently, the Stikini is a shapeshifting witch (somewhat similar to a Skinwalker witch in Navajo & Ute lore). Interesting account. Lon
