Scary ‘Skinwalker’ Encounters in Arizona & Utah

2 harrowing Skinwalker encounter experiences, one on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona and the opposite in southern Utah. Very scary accounts!

I just lately got here throughout the next account:

“I used to be a child when this occurred. My uncle and I had been ending up chopping/gathering firewood for my grandmother as a result of it was getting darkish. This was on the Navajo Rez right here in Arizona. Driving again on a dust highway at about 30 mph I had this terrible sense of being watched. Earlier than I might flip to look out my window (passenger facet) my uncle rapidly shouted, “Do not!” I utterly froze. My coronary heart felt prefer it was beating out of my chest then utterly stopped after I heard a ‘faucet faucet’ on my window. My uncle sped up and was loudly praying in my native language. I did not know what was happening and thought it was over till our truck immediately dipped from the mattress. My uncle then began saying, “Have a look at me” and “Do not flip away” time and again. Then I heard it once more, ‘faucet faucet’ however from the window behind me. It was getting more durable for me to breathe and I wished to cry.

A minute or two handed and the truck dipped once more. My uncle regarded round and sighed. It was quiet moreover the truck and the highway. He checked out me and mentioned, “We are going to ask your father to do a prayer within the morning. So the evil will neglect our faces.” (Navajo to English equal). I keep in mind curling up on the seat and simply staring on the radio watching the time, listening to my uncle sing an outdated prayer until we received to my grandmother’s home.

I later known as my uncle as a result of I had a nightmare about that evening. We talked about it for a bit. He mentioned, “I didn’t see faces. Simply eyes. Like brake lights you see on the highway. It watched you.” (Navajo to English equal) Earlier than hanging up I attempted joking with him about it. “Why didn’t you simply step on the brake when it was within the again?” No laughter. Only a pause. “As a result of it wasn’t alone.” NJ


“Earlier than I inform my story, I’ll summarize what a skinwalker is to people who might not know. A skinwalker is a being that makes use of witchcraft, kills an animal and makes use of the pores and skin as a disguise. It’s primarily energetic at evening however will observe through the day. It is favourite disguise is that of a daily human. A skinwalker’s most noticeable traits are yellow glowing eyes and decaying flesh.

Anyway, I used to be heading to a small city in southern Utah with my spouse and a few associates. We had been on our option to see Lee, a good friend of mine that we hadn’t seen for a very long time. We met up with him at his place and determined to hang around at a close-by lake. It was a typical quiet campsite with a fireplace pit and a few logs round it. We had a bit of picnic there and had been exchanging tales and catching up with one another all day. Finally, considered one of my associates, Bryce, received drained and determined to go to sleep within the automobile whereas the remainder of us continued speaking. At this level, twilight had fallen. Erika and I had been discussing one thing whereas my spouse and Lee had been speaking about one thing else.

All the sudden, my spouse and Lee fall silent. Erika and I rapidly discover. We take a look at them and Lee says, “Get within the automobile!” I requested him, “What’s fallacious?” And he says, “There is perhaps a skinwalker out round.” Now Erika and I had no thought what a skinwalker was on the time so we requested him to clarify. After his rationalization of what it was, Erika and I, being the one smart thinkers in the intervening time and, Bryce simply barely waking up from us leaping within the automobile, resolve we must always examine, believing that it was most likely just a few youngsters in a close-by campsite making an attempt to mess with us. We got here to the highest of the hill that was between our campsite and the following and regarded for any doubtless candidates for the scare. None. All we might see was a few timber and a few bushes. We even known as out and there was no response.

As we had been strolling again to the campsite, we hear noises. A rustling within the bushes behind us. We glance once more however see nothing. At this level we had been contemplating that Lee and my spouse could also be proper. We get again and it is getting darkish quick so I ask them, “Is there one thing we will do to maintain them away for a bit of bit?” “Sure.” Stated Lee. “They do not like hearth.” And him, my spouse, and Bryce begin engaged on a fireplace whereas me and Erika go down by the lake to gather the two liters we had put within the water to maintain chilly.

Now it is darkish, and as Erika and I head again with the sodas, we hear rustling within the bushes beside us. We’re each scared. We hurry again and begin placing every thing again within the automobile as rapidly as doable whereas Lee made positive the fireplace stored burning. After getting every thing within the automobile, I rush over to the fireplace pit and inform everybody to get within the automobile as I proceed to stomp the fireplace out. Proper as the fireplace went out, I hear a blood-curdling scream from throughout the lake. I felt my coronary heart cease. Lee had mentioned skinwalkers are quick and will make a full lap round this lake in a matter of seconds. I bounce within the automobile and yell “GO!”

Proper because the engine began and the lights come on, we see it popping out of the bushes in entrance of us. Glowing yellow eyes and what regarded like a zombified coyote with decaying flesh. We backed up and peeled out of there as quick as we might.

This occurred two years in the past and it nonetheless scares me to understand how shut I got here to dying. I’m truthfully amazed that all of us survived such an in depth encounter with this…factor.” I9

NOTE: Some Navajo refer to those entities as ‘yee naaldlooshii’ or Hellhounds. This will not essentially be a Skinwalker, however I do consider the time period is used interchangeably. Lon
