In the Spirit of Seatco

Sasquatch, Indians, Geography, and Science in the Nineteenth Century 
By Henry J Franzoni III

Seatco is a nineteenth century term from the Chinook Jargon, the one-time trade  language of the  Pacific Northwest.  Indians described the Seatco as a mysterious tribe of Indians that possessed puzzling powers... among which was their ability to kill game with hypnotic power and their ability to turn invisible. Since the 1920s, modern society  has disregarded Indian wisdom about the Seatco as superstition and myth, coinciding with the rise of mechanism and reductionism and the defeat of vitalism in institutional science.  Institutional science has found no place for the Seatco (known today as the Sasquatch)..  After 50 years of cursory interest, institutional science has acquired no hard evidence that they exist.   However, the places the Indians said they lived still exist.  Explore the location of over 4000 early place names and embark on a quest to find out if the Seatco are still there.  Accompany the author as he seeks to understand the puzzling powers of the Seatco... exploring the possible connections between science and spirituality... between Indian wisdom and the discarded 19th century idea of “field lines”  as well as the long abandoned scientific school of thought named  vitalism”.   Learn about a possible explanation for the puzzling powers of the Seatco using the 19th century theories of Faraday, Maxwell, Tesla, and the vitalists.  Journey across North America and learn how extrordinary proof of their theories awaits discovery in the high and lonely realm of the Seatco.
