Honey Island Swamp Monster is the appellation of a proposed crypto-hominid, named for the Louisiana swamp it is said to inhabit, which was first reported in 1963 by Harlan Ford. It has been connected with Letiche, a wild man figure in Louisiana regional folklore, sourced to "ancient Native American" stories of unidentified origins, and Tainted Keitre, a similar folktale of Cajun origins.
