The Pudwudgies of Mounds State Park
It is not surprising that a place that is so rich in history should have a long tradition of oral folklore associated with it. The folklore associated with Mounds State Park is more than just oral history, sighting of the legendary beings that haunt this state park persist to this day. Creature from Native America Folklore called pudwudgies are seen on a regular basis around this site. Pudwudgies are 2 or 3 ft high with large noses, fingers, and ears. They are grey and are sometimes said to glow. They are dangerous creatures that can transform into animals and are said to enjoy mischief and destruction and sometimes have been known to lure people to their deaths.
Interestingly, Pudwudgies are said to be able to control the ghosts of those they have murdered. Thus they can use their army of ghosts to create more mischief and cause more death. Regular sitings of the Pudwudgies and their ghosts are reported at the Mound State Park and I can't wait to visit and see if I can catch a glimpse of these mischief makers myself.
