The Wendigo is a spirit seen in a physical form that haunts the Algonkian-speaking reserves in the Northwest Territories. It is a half-phantom and half-beast creature that is said to haunt the forests. It is known to prey on humans as well as children. It can also infect a human being making that person a zombie that is known to resort to cannibalism. A single look has been enough to supposedly scare a human being to death.
