Skinwalker Ranch: Interview With Local Tribe Member

Posted by Xavier Ortega | September 24, 2013 32

Larry Ceespooch Interview about the goings on in the Skinwalker Ranch area from Marc Coppell on Vimeo.

Marc over at sent me a link to a recent interview with Larry Cesspooch from the Ute tribe. The man spoke of strange ‘things’ creeping around the infamous Skinwalker Ranch.

Strange tales of tall, bipedal humanoids and werewolf-like creatures plague the territory where the ranch exists. If you know anything about the place, you’re in for a treat.

In early July of 2013 we set off to the area of Fort Duchesne, Utah. After reading/hearing various stories about the famous Skinwalker Ranch a.k.a. Sherman Ranch. This is one of the top paranormal zones in the U.S.A. I just had to visit and do a weekend investigation. The property is owned by billionaire Robert Bigelow (of Bigelow Aerospace and Budget Suite chain) who purchased the land to conduct scientific observations of the bizarre supernatural activity. The previous owner and his family fled the property after experiencing a tsunami of strange appearances and manifestations of creatures, ufo’s, poltergiest and some of his own prized cattle getting mutilated (some observed).

A dominant thought as to the reason for much of the activity being related to a inter-dimensional portal being on his property. Now also neighbours also report seeing some of the activity too. The hard core scientists of NIDSci or the National Institute for Discovery Science (Robert Bigelow’s team) also witnessed some of the reported phenomenon themselves. The property is still guarded by ex military security and don’t like anyone watching even from a distance on public land.

While up there we spoke to a witness (under secrecy because of their community standing) of a local giant saucer shaped UFO with red, blue and green lights that terrified many of the locals of the area and supposedly knocked out power to the area. Some witnesses first thinking there were police vehicles outside. Some people not seeing the lights suggesting the flashing lights was caused by exploding transformers. Though some saw a giant saucer craft too. That also many were struggling mentally after the sighting on February 12th, 2012.

I interviewed Larry Cesspooch of the local Ute tribe who grew up in the Fort Duchesne area who told me about paranormal experiences in the area.

Not in this video edit (I was trying to give Larry good coverage) my experiences with a strange explosion sound close to us while on a night investigation, close-up streaks of light, ghost box sessions of trapped souls also warning us of the hellish locale. Michelle being frightened by something knocking on the car window while I was doing soul work in the middle of the night in a isolated locale. I hope to return to do more observations in the near future. -source:

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released fall of 2016. Got a question? Drop me a line.

    “Cesspooch”? Really? is that like “Moneymaker”?

  • DarkFeatherNovels

    I hope I’ve misinterpreted your comment as a negative dig. Larry is a quiet, sincere, spiritual man and respected by his people. I get the feeling you haven’t been fortunate enough to have met someone like him. He is awesome.

  • Do those things being true, make him correct in his assertions?
    Is it possible to genuinely believe something and still be mistaken in your conclusions?

  • IThinkso

    Trustworthy, than a theorizing (Atheist) scientist.

  • Ryan Skinner

    He is awesome and I posted his video on my site weeks ago. Larry is a respected tribal member and I get the impression he is being completely open and honest in his story.

  • 65drummet

    Native Americans who practice their traditional beliefs are much more in tune with the earth than you can possibly imagine. Any attack on their credibility is only a show of great ignorance. If you can get past your prejudice, you may begin to learn something.

  • The Anonymous Phantom

    No, that’s more like “where the potty empties.”

    “They compiled an impressive collection of what might be termed “ghost stories” but, in spite of having access to sophisticated electronic equipment, failed to obtain any actual proof that anything unexplainable was going on.”

  • So, you think they are ready for their own reality show then.

  • IThinkso

    Mysterious events are happening and being captured non stop on Roku Streaming Player, Silver Screen… and what ever was captured on 1967’s Roger Patterson’s camera….for our instant gratification.

    Really, the real life mysterious events are almost impossible to capture willingly by a camera, when they are being triggered randomly by an intelligence. For that very reason I got hold of both the books (The Utah UFO Display & Hunt for the Skinwalker), from the local libraries.

    Lets see, how true CSI claim is, though I already see there is not a single photo of any thing mysterious in any of these books. The Colm & Knapp novel has none, altogether.

  • Marc Coppell

    Researchers noted that the intelligence/s were always a step ahead of them and did not like being filmed. Sounds like UFO’s too.They seemed to enjoy messing with them. Even had some their video observation gear vandalized on a high observation pole.

  • Yeah…”We didn’t find what we wanted to find, so what we believe is there must be smarter than us, or hiding.”

    No human being would vandalize a camera. Especially not where people make their reputation on mysterious events.

  • IThinkso

    Excellent CSI, along with pretty reasonable response @ 2:23:57…

  • IThinkso

    Sounds like this area is infested with babylonian black magic & sorcery practices. Then divorce rate must be high too.

  • Donna

    Read the Skinwalker Ranch info about all this in the new book “Exo-Vaticana”

  • PurrlGurrl

    This Skinwalker Ranch fairytale brought a much-needed boost to the local economy when the NIDS people were crawling all over it and still brings in some shekels from paranormal tourists (like the dude who made this video). I’m sure the local tribe needs the money, and who can begrudge these folks for conning the “white man” with some ghost stories (a far more benign practice than gifting us with pox infested blankets).

  • Marc Coppell

    You travel up there and will find a lot of no trespassing signs and find that many do not want to have their quiet lives disturbed. I spoke to a UFO witness who did not want money or attention. Besides many do not want the ridicule or lose their jobs. There are some people that are that way but to lump everyone in the same basket is wrong.

  • Ryan Skinner

    incredibly ignorant statement, neither the local nor the tribe has made anything from the REAL events at the ranch.

  • The Anonymous Phantom

    It’s a bit hard to swallow all this nonsense without some hard evidence. It’s amazing how the evidence evaporates under the simplest of scrutinies and how the perpetrators of these frauds always backpeddal and find excuses not to show evidence. “The camera ‘mysteriously’ stopped working,” etc. or the most idiotic: “The aliens don’t want me to show you.” We will never see proof, but we will always have stories.

  • IThinkso

    The purpose of this Majestic Universe is not, what you have suggested in your 1:03 pm post’al.

  • Ralph Hunter

    i love the story of skinwalker ranch. fascinating to hear the story from a local. he is a wise and interesting man

  • Don

    Unless true skeptics are total idiots, they would take a never say never approach before they say it can’t be possible.

  • HCE

    Interesting how these things are always either/or. First of all, Unless skepticism is all-inclusive and unrelenting it’s merely prejudice in disguise. And equally as a bad are True Believers. I’ve watched other videos by this guy, and he’s pretty much completely credulous. I’ve had first hand experience with things that defy all explanation, and many of them were experiences I’d care to never have again. True “high Strangeness” is frequently hair raising and unpleasant. And I’ve also seen more than my fair share of utter BS. But if you have a bias one way or the other, it will filter what you experience, and limit what you *can* experience. Open minded skepticism is probably the best position to adopt.

    I have doubts about Mr. Cesspooch for one reason. Every nativetribal person I’ve known who holds any sort of spiritual position in their community has a 100% zero tolerance alcohol use policy. They know it is a dangerous poison, and is anathema to a spiritual life, at least for them and their people. I can’t help wonder if Mr. Cesspooch is what they refer to as a Red Apple – Red on the outside, White on the inside. The minute he mentioned his “sipping on suds” my already operating radar went into high gear.

  • It certainly can be true that skepticism is all inclusive, just as it can be true that belief is, but to suggest that this is always true is to indulge in more than a little “either/or” yourself.

    For myself, and taking the liberty of speaking for the other contributors here, yes, we are skeptics. Not because we outright disbelieve (though there are topics we discuss about which I take that stance) but because we are seeking the truth of these topics and that truth will only come through rigorous scientific investigation. Not ever through blind acceptance of often circumstantial or unrelated, and almost universally anecdotal testimony. Just because there are things I outright disbelieve, does not mean that I will discount valid evidence. I will hold that evidence to highest degree of scrutiny, but that should be the case in any investigation of something new, and especially in fields that go against many known or observable principles of nature or science.

    Maybe your comments were not directed at us, but others make the charge against us from time to time so I will add; IF we were outright naysayers, would anyone bother coming here? If we were that, why would we bother writing on these topics at all. There is a common maxim, Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Once, so far as many people were concerned, the Sun orbited the Earth. In the face of evidence, this belief persisted. Some were punished for even proposing the idea. But facts are persistent. Belief will waver after time in the face of facts. Only facts will bring us to answers.

  • Marc Coppell

    I do think seriously about the things I’ve witnessed sometimes I may make a mistake now and again with analyzing footage though I will make that known. I have seen crazy things with others close up and in broad daylight (rarely do these kinds of things do show up when you want.) I put a face to my name. I have a passion for truth whatever form it comes in. I have had to let go of strong past beliefs realizing that historical facts and other pieces did not line up. I do not think everything that goes “bump” in the night is supernatural that is ridiculous. Though on the other hand I have seen too much to know “we are alone.” And there are other dimensions around us which you can’t put and study in a beaker. Perhaps someday technology will be able to detect other dimensions. I find remote viewing quite interesting and that the government backed it in the past.

    I wish more people would pro actively venture out and seek the answers themselves instead of watching others do it. But many would rather live in a belief box whatever form that comes in for it is a mentally safer place to be. Is not part of science observation and documenting it which may take us to a different paradigm upon analysis?

    We are the ones under the microscope. That’s my two cents.

  • DavetheHammer

    You sir are a bigot. Not every Native-American/Canadians are drinkers. Don’t forget to wash your white hood along with your filthy mouth that spews vocal diarrhea.

  • IThinkso

    What up Xavier, haven’t seen your comments for quite some time. Wondering whether you have been already introduced to “The Entity”. The unexplained phenomenons/madness can be easily explained once this intelligent creation is understood, mind boggling for open minded (atheist) scientists.

    No surprise that Bigelow madness is not limited to skinwalker ranch, check this out @ 0:41:30

    Excerpts from “UINTAH BASIN UFO DISPLAY” 1974 Edition

    Page 38-39

    ” Sighting #41 is well calculated to frustrate the careful objective approach of a scientific UFO investigator. The Clyde McDonald family was informed by one of its members, a fourth grader, that a flying saucer was going to appear above the Roosevelt Hospital at eight o’clock on the evening of February 23, 1967. How did the young lady know that the flying saucer was going to appear? Why, some of the students in the other fourth grade class had been playing with a Ouija board, and the Ouija board had informed them that this event would take place. Mother and father chuckled properly and sat down to watch television. They were relaxing in their bare feet when the children began to bundle up and go out to meet their eight o’clock appointment with the UFO. Mother said, “You’d better hurry. It will be gone before you get there.” Then, as Mrs. McDonald says: “Tim looked up, and he hollered, ‘Oh, run, Tammy, There it is!’, and they about broke that door off getting in. So we all ran, the three of us, jumped up and ran to the door, and, of course, then we could see that big light right out there by the Jennings’ yard. Boy, they were behind us and they wouldn’t go out then. And we saw that light, and, of course, we just stood out there then and watched it, and we about froze,-we were barefoot and everything, but we didn’t want to come back in and lose it! It was kind of an orange ball, orange to red, kind of in a circle, bigger than an ordinary light.” “How big was it compared to the full moon?” I asked her. “Well, it wasn’t that big. I’d say probably a third, wouldn’t it be?”

    One of the children ran in to call the neighbors, and Mr. McDonald went to get his rifle scope. By the time he got back, it was gone. They watched out of the windows of the house for a half hour or so but didn’t see it again.

    This sighting was unusually well documented by Junior Hicks, as is apparent from Table 3. He found at least five other witnesses who described the same object, which they claim to have seen at the same time and in about the same place. Some of them saw it at different times, moving rather than stationary. In the case of Roy Marchant, it flew alongside his car for about a mile, and then went straight up in the fashion described by so many witnesses. Of course, the really perplexing thing about this excellent sighting (excellent, not so much because of details, but because of the number of witnesses involved) is the prediction from the Ouija board. What can a non-superstitious, twentieth-century scientist say about this? I suppose he could suggest that it was the purest of coincidences, and perhaps it was.”
