The Bagwajiwinini – also known as the “little people of Minnesota,” or as Pukwudgies – are small, humanoid creatures that are a part of Ojibwa legend. They are 2-3′ tall with green skin.
They have been described as dangerous to humans due to the possibility of abduction. A boy was allegedly kidnapped by the Bagwajiwinini on a hunting trip with his father – who found him trapped in the roots of a tree – and some believe that the 2007 disappearance and subsequent death of hiker Kory Kelly are related to the Bagwajiwinini.
I have heard tales of them in Pennsylvania, where they are reported to steal and throw apples at picnickers while staying hidden and also in Massachusetts.
I had not heard any warnings of danger associated with these creatures, before, though, so do beware.
