Actually the Windigo is a cryptid
The wendigo is not a cryptid. It's from Native American mythology and associated with a lot of magical powers like powers over wind and ice, which puts it firmly into mythological territory. What you are likely thinking about is the sasquatch. That one is similar to the wendigo but is more close to bigfoot or the yeti in what it is supposed to be, and therefore could be considered a cryptid.
I will pull up the Article I read that proves other wise
http://www.prairieghosts.com/wendigo.html Proof in this story that the Windigo has been around long before the white man had roamed the land. I read another article that seemed to have dissapeared on me but The windigo is a hidden creature Canada had Windigo trials where man people were burned because they were believed to be possessed by the windigo.
Here is a bit more Information http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Wendigo-- ... id=1893576
if its a creature of Myth then why is it under cryptozoology?
