    As the thought of desire for human flesh possesses a person, their heart becomes ice and they turn Wendigo. They forget that people are people and not just animals to be consumed, and they become a danger to all who pass them by.

    Wendigo’s are Native folks who have starved. More First Nations are sorry for them rather than scared.
