New reality-TV show explores Nantinaq stories
For generations, the Suqpiag people of the Nanwalek and Port Graham area have told of a mysterious being, Nantinaq, that lurks in the thick forests of the southern Kenai Peninsula, especially the Port Chatham area. Tales have been handed down of a large hairy being, like Bigfoot, that uproots trees, makes mysterious knocking sounds and sometimes causes people to disappear.
Could Nantinaq be real, and if so, what is it? That’s the premise of a new reality-TV show, “Alaskan Killer Bigfoot,” an eight-episode limited series that premiered with the first two episodes on Dec. 7 on Discovery+, a streaming video platform. Episode 3 showed Tuesday.
