Sasquatch Investigations of Mid-America
An organization founded in 1976, one of several which functioned
in the 1970s and 1980s whose membership was interested
in the scientific study of the Sasquatch, also known as Bigfoot,
a large hairy nocturnal creature allegedly sighted in
thickly-wooded, mountainous regions throughout the world.
Sasquatches are reportedly about eight feet tall, walk upright,
and appear to be intelligent and peaceful.
About 1,000 Sasquatch sightings were documented through
the 1970s in the United States, primarily in the northwestern
states. SIA collected and evaluated data on Bigfoot and released
findings to the general public through lectures, publications,
and radio and television programs. It maintained a library
of books and magazines and published Bigfoot News, in
which members reported their investigations and sightings.
SIA was headquartered in Edmond, Oklahoma. (See also Bigfoot
