I fully agree with you comments Kathy. Ufologists should not
jump to quick conclusions because the details in a story
supports their personal beliefs about UFOs or non-human

In 1990 Pope John Paul II appointed Donald Pelotte as the first
American Indian bishop (of the Abenaki tribe). I think it is
important to note that Abenakis (or Penobscots, like an Orthodox
monk friend of mine is, who teaches religion/mythology at the
University of Toronto). He told me that there is a 'phenomenon'
of 'little people' among all the Wabanaki - Peoples of the East
coast - similar to the Russian 'domovoi.' Like 'domovoi',
'little people' are a local 'phenomenon' and do follow you to
other locations - i.e. the experience is not transportable. My
monk friend, who also has medical training, went on to say that
there seems to be dementia present of some sort - hence the
fall, the confusion, the hallucinations, the anxiety attacks
given the age of the bishop.

May God keep Bishop Pelotte in his care.

That said, let me also say that from my private conversations
with Orthodox monks in monastaries I have stayed at in four
continents, encounters with little people and other non-human
entities are frequent occurances in their lives. I believe in
our lives too - but we tend to rationalize everything and are
very dismissive about things we have been taught as not
