More on Pukwudgies
When Pukwudgies Attack
{I do not consider that the "Possession" video has anything to do with the actual reports, but here is the rest of what was posted on the string at Unexplained

Posted 02 December 2008 - 04:59 AM

Aanica, Thanks for sharing this interesting & creepy video. She really does have a creepy hiss going on .
I find it strange they titled it 'When Pukwudgie Attacks'. I'm not an expert or anything, but I don't recall reading anywhere that the Pukwudgie can possess a person. Apparently they can shapeshift into any being and could mimic a person, though. 
I hope you don't mind that I'm adding info links about the Pukwugie, if anyone wants to go and check it out.
(If you do mind, pm me and I'll delete/edit the info out of this post... I won't mind a bit and I'm very understanding.
Pukwugies of Indiana
Dark Destinations - Mounds state park The Modern day sightings of the pukwugies in Indiana are described as small, glowing, grey, about 2 ft tall, big noses-ears-fingers, shapeshifters, killers, lures their victims with spirits.
Pukwudgies of Massachusetts
The Pukwudgies: Myth or Monster website has a legend of the beginnings of the Pukwudgies.
A couple of the more modern day stories tell of different individuals that encountered a Pukwudgie in the woods and is seemingly stalked and observed by it ever since.
There's also a cliff in the area that has had a unexplained suicides by people who are seemingly happy and sane. The legend suggest that it's the pukwudgies that lure the people to the cliff and through some type of negative encounter they cause the person to fall to their death.
excerpt from the 'Pukwudgies: Myth or Monster' website:
*Of all the unknown horrors that live in Bristol County, the most feared is not a animal or a ghost or the members of Satanic cults that walk the forests, but a demon only two feet high, and if the history of the area represents the history of our America society, these Pukwudgies are the gatekeepers of our darker side. The Pukwudgies have haunted the forests of Massachusetts since before the first European Settlers ever thought about setting out for a new land. For centuries they tormented the local Native Americans and crept their way into their creation myths and oral history. They could easily be passed of as legend, and in fact, their physical description is much like mythological creatures from other cultures in other times. The difference is these demons jumped from the page and evolved as the people around them changed, changing from reluctant helpers to evil tormentors. The difference is these demons are still seen by people today.
Pukwudgie ----(wiki link)
*A Pukwudgie is a two or three foot tall troll-like being from the Native American Wampanoag. Pukwudgies' features resemble those of the Native Americans, but with enlarged nose, fingers and ears. Their skin is described as being grey, smooth and at times has been known to glow.
[The glow is either from foxfire on the fur, or simply being wet and shiny in strong moonlight-DD]

In Native American lore, Pukwudgies have the following traits and abilities;
* to appear and disappear at will
* to transform into other animals
* they are able to use magic
* they have poison arrows
* they can create fire at will
* Pukwudgies control Tei-Pai-Wankas which are believed to be the souls of Native Americans they have killed.
Native Americans believed that Puckwudgies were best left alone. When you see a Puckwudgie you are not supposed to mess with them, or they will repay you by playing nasty tricks on you, or following you and causing trouble. They were once friendly to humans, then they turned against them. They are known to kidnap humans, push people off of cliffs, attack their victims with short knives and spears and to use sand to blind their victim.

Pukwudgies are fairy or troll-like beings in the folklore of several Native American tribes, but especially of the Wampanoag people in and around Massachusetts.
Appearance: Pukwudgies appear as small people, approximately three-feet tall and having a large nose, large, ears, and long fingers. Their skin color is either bluish-grey, or ashen, and according to some sources their skin glows in the dark. Pukwudgies may also be part-porcupine and may possess porcupine quills on their backs. Pukwudgie clothing is made from items taken from nature and may serve as a form of camouflage.

Lore: In the distant past Pukwudgies were friends of humanity. Unfortunately some Pukwudgies are now quite hostile toward humans. Pukwudgies delight in kidnapping children, like their European Fairy counterparts, and use their magic to lure people to their doom, such as to fall into a body of water and drown or to walk off a cliff. They also shoot magical arrows that will sicken and kill a person with time. If that wasn't enough, Pukwudgies trap and control the souls of anyone they kill. Not all Pukwudgies are evil and sometimes beneficial Pukwudgies do good things for people but one should show caution when dealing with them because they are tricksters and delight in making mischief.

Powers: Pukwudgies have the power of invisibility, the power to shape-shift into animals, especially porcupines, as well as balls of light. Pukwudgies have the magical power to confuse people in order to lure them to their deaths. Additionally, Pukwudgies shoot magic arrows that will cause the victim to sicken and die with time. Pukwudgies enslave the souls of their victims. Pukwudgies are also said to have power over fire or to delight in setting fires.

Defense Against Pukwudgies: If one encounters a Pukwudgies the best thing that person can do is to simply ignore it. Because Pukwudgies are extremely similar to European fairies, it is possible that salt, the Lord's Prayer, and Iron may be helpful in repelling them.

Pukwudgie Sightings Today: People continue to report sightings of Pukwudgies to this very day. Be cautious when out and about in the woods and out of the way places near the Great Lakes region or New England.
