Mel Skahan lives in Toppenish Washington and is an enrolled member of the Yakama Nation. Mel worked for the United States Forest Service from 1988 – 1995 in the Wind River and Mt. Adams Ranger Districts. He has also worked security in the past and currently works for the Yakama Nation Forestry. He has not always been a believer. He was raised in the woods by his great, great, grandfather, who would keep all of the kids in the woods all summer at his camp in a closed area of the Yakama Reservation. It was there that Mel heard stories of Bigfoot. Mel worked in Bigfoot country in while working for the Forest Service. Back during those days, Mel laughed at the stories. He never really believed the stories, until he got to thinking about things from the past. When he started working for the Yakama Nation, he started seeing signs of the creature; tracks, hair, smell, and even sightings. He had visuals starting 9 years ago. He went on expeditions with BFRO when he was a member. He has been on other private expeditions with close friends he has made while on outings. Mel now does all of the bigfoot reports on the Yakama Reservation; there are only 3 individuals that listen to reports. With every new encounter, Mel’s way of reporting and researching change.
