Disclaimer: what I am about to write is only what I have learned and is only my beliefs that keep the interaction between the Okla Chito, some friends that are in our small group and myself. We are not a research group nor do we collect evidence or attempt video or photographic proof of them. Most of our small group are just friends that I have known over the years that have seen similar things I have and want to learn more.
When you were a child you were taught what you can do and not do. In all my years as a researcher, and now just plain learning what I thought I knew I have observe that they have strict discipline nature of their children as we do ours. This is where I came up in my own words as dos and don’ts when going out to visit their locations. I never invade their space or their home (living) areas. I never walk towards them, if I can see them. I never raise my voice towards them. I never point a flashlight/red laser of any kind. Everyone that has been out with me knows I do not even carry a flashlight. I have always just been that way, even as a child playing in the woods at night I never used one.
To continue: I never throw trash down or leave trash in any areas of nature. I normally never carry a firearm on my person (trust me some of my friends make comments about that). In some locations of remote areas I do for the protection of animals (bears, mountain lions, etc). One thing I can say is that if I know they are present there are no other animals in the area such as bears and mountain lions. In as a personal choice and only my opinion. I never throw rocks or anything back at them. ( I have only had rocks thrown in my direction maybe 3-4 times) I never try and bait them, I only leave “thank you” offerings when it is appropriate. Here are some of the things I do that tend to have positive outcomes over a period of time. I always ask permission to walk to areas that maybe near them or move to see them better. Now when I do this, I have never been given a verbal acknowledgment. However when this happens they move or give the impression of acceptance, for example: One time when I asked to move closer to see them, one of them (larger adult) actually moved closer to me where I could see him a little better) I could go on and on over this but do not want to bore you. All I am saying is if you give them the respect and patience your experience will have a better outcome. Everything that is proven in science is about trial and error. The things I have seen my friends do with some of these rules have paid off. You can see a change in actions with the Okla Chito, but again this has taken several years to accomplish this as where our group and myself are today. Build that trust, respect, and patience you maybe amazed of what could happen.
