Conference Founder: 
Harriett McFeely

My BIGFOOT quest started on May 29, 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary climbed Mt. Everest  AND, he saw Yeti footprints!  I was only 8 at the time.  But, I BELIEVED, and I have never looked back or doubted…..
Then on October 20, 1967 the Patterson/Gimlin film was made of “Patty”.
I never doubted it,  and I still don’t…. I was “hooked” for life.
Some highlights of my growing up years were sleeping in a tent in the back yard, being outdoors, and hunting for fossils. When I was hiking one summer I found a 13 pound fossilized wooly mammoth bone, which is still one of my most prized possessions.  
Becoming more involved with Bigfoot research as an adult has brought intrigue and joy to my life. I have been fortunate to join the Sasquatch Investigation of the Rockies team and I enjoy attending campouts, and the Honobia Oklahoma Bigfoot Conference each year.

This past October of 2017, I was fortunate to be able to travel to California with a friend and enjoyed the 50th Anniversary Celebration Conference of the Patterson Gimlin film, as well as a birthday celebration for Bob Gimlin. Truly a trip of a lifetime with many memories!
It is my hope that having a Nebraska Bigfoot Conference will provide education and increase interest not only in the field of Sasquatch, but also in all of the mysteries and challenges of our natural world. I believe that, for all ages, but especially for our young people; being outdoors and learning about unknown species is very important. Being in nature will enrich their everyday lives, empower them to experience the natural environment, and channel their creative energy into scientific exploration. Please join us in Hastings for our conference,  and hopefully you will enjoy the experience of learning more about the mysteries of our world.
