I recently found an article from the Greenville Delta Star - Mississippi  1938 reporting an encounter with a creature that resembled a gorilla by two men near Rockhill, S.C.

  and that creature was called a "Udilacus"....specifically an "African Udilacus".   Anyone heard of this one before?

Mi'Kmaq called it Gougou (sometimes Kuku). Was said to be a wild hairy woman if memory serves. 

Other names I have heard for them here on the East Coast, Wildmen, Coal Harbour Monster, Monkey Face

 

Heard some people call them boogwise, chatter talkers (because of the "samurai Chatter". Couple hunters here in Nova Scotia call them Woods licker's, or woods talkers. Though those might be just names by a small pocket of people.

Never heard Loup Garou as a term for Sasquatch though Chelefoot. Grew up hearing about the legends of Loup Garou as a kid, there was always a distinction between wildmen and Loup Garou. Loup Garou was said to be a werewolf/wolfman, while Wildmen were Sasquatch like. Who knows.

Sasquatch are recognized by Northwestern Indians as none other than the Seeahtik Tribe of Indians. Seeahtik is a Clallam pronunciation. All other tribes of the Northwest pronounce it Seeahtkeh.  Source: Front Page of “The Oregonian†On July 16, 1924

 

From that comes the origin of a suburban city between Seattle and Tacoma. SeaTac

/ˈsiËtæk/ is an American city in southern King County, Washington, and an outlying suburb of Seattle, Washington. "SeaTac" is a combination of the first syllables of "Seattle" and "Tacoma."
