Ok But Seriously, What Is A Skinwalker?
From what we can gather, a New Mexico skinwalkers are defined as humans that have crossed over to the dark side in a sense. Almost like they “signed with the Devil”. This happens after being mind-controlled by different skin walker. After being sought out by one and converted, the new skinwalkers is given a certain power, whether it be flying or morphing into a wolf, and they change their form. As a new skin walker they roam the landscape in a similar fashion to a human, while also being “different in every sense.” The true meaning of their existence is an absolute mystery.
Skinwalkers take interest in a human before attempting to convert them. It could be an obsession with their strength, or a lust for their beauty, but they will stalk for many months before making any moves.
It is common for stories ofNew Mexico skinwalker sightings to end up in official police reports :
“Ware said that skinwalkersightings among the Utes are not uncommon. He told us of an encounter with twoshapeshifters near the Gorman ranch. The figures he described are so unusual,so far outside our own concept of reality as to be almost comical, likesomething out of a Saturday morning cartoon. One local who saw them in the roadin Fort Duchesne described them as humans with dog heads smoking cigarettes.But Ware was perfectly serious in his description. He certainly did not barehis soul for comic effect and we have no interest in making light of his story.For him, and for many others, skinwalkers are as real as the morning sun or theevening moon.”
