Yowie is the most common name for Bigfoot used today among white people in Australia. The creatures were first called Yahoos by white settlers. One explanation for the word Yowie is that it is a corruption of the word Yahoo. Sightings of large, hairy, bipedal hominids in Australia date back to the 1800s, with at least one expert claiming a sighting as far back as the year 1795. However, the Indigenous people of Australia have legends of Bigfoot-like creatures going back centuries.
