Okay I see drawings of the Wendigo, and they all show the same thing, a man with a deer head skull for the hat, with many markings and weapons. This is not true, the Wendigo is a demonic spirit that take over the human after they committed the ultimate taboo, cannibalism. Legend goes like this.
The village of a lone tribe was going through hardships, a mighty winter storm is coming and the village has no food for the harsh winter. So the chief asked three men to go to the mountain and hunt for food. One with a feather in his ear, one with markings on his arm and the other with long breaded hair. These men were the strongest members of the tribe and were willing to help. They set out at daybreak and traveled several hours before reaching the mountain basen. By then they were hungry and can barely concentrate. They slowly made their way up the mountain. They grew tired and one of the breaded hair men slipped on a rock and fell down the the side onto a ledge. The other two followed them. When they reached him, he had broken his leg. The other two men picked him up and dragged him up the mountain. Day turned into night and the men had to set up camp. Hungry, tired and one man down, they started to lose hope but, without knowing they bad day is going to turn into a bad night. As the moon light disappear, white frozen rain fell from sky. It was snowing and it was snowing hard it became a blizzard and trapped the men on the mountain. It continued to snow and the three men, Without food started to get angry. Screaming at one and another, saying stuff like "this your fault" or "I should not have listen to you". Hours turned into days and days turned into week and still the storm continued on. Then one day one of the men went missing it was the man with the broken leg, but the other man was in the corner hunched over something. The man slowly walked over to him. As he got closer he heard chewing and the smell of decay and blood. The man asked " you okay?" The hunched over man turned his head and he was a terrifying sight. His face was covered with blood. The other man stepped back from the shock of seeing his friend this way. The bloody man replied " I'm fine haha, but for some odd reason I'm still hungry" he looked the man with the feather in his ear. The feather man ran out of the cave while the other chased after him. He ran and ran trying to escape, but then when he thought he was safe. He blacked out. The only thing heard was the sound of his friend who sheiked with and horrable sound.
now that is the true legend not what shows tell you
