For discussions of everything that might be classed as ‘paranormal‘ - i.e. not currently accepted by our modern scientific paradigm.
They are medicine men gone very bad. I think they do have some sort of mental ability. I don't know if that is how they track victims to great distances as in the form of remote viewing. How they do that is kind of inexplicable. Ours visited us in one home and a few months after we moved to a different home, the same one began visiting us there. We were unlisted in the phone book at the time so that rules out the obvious form of tracking. We are 100% certain that it was the exact same skinwalker as well. Skinwalkers use flute music as their calling cards. Our skinwalker had a rather unusual song, very discordant and crazy. Generally, skinwalker flute is mournful and rather chilling. Ours was unique in that it was erratic. Our medicine man believed that it wasn't just one either but 4. He said that the one I saw was female and high level (pure white fur is said to be a symbol of high power and what I saw her do was something only the most skilled skinwalkers can do--young ones look malformed and are the ones that tend to get shot at), that it had a male partner and two young skinwalkers with it that were trainees as well. I know that when I saw "her" and she stared back at me from the top of the hill, I felt like she was really looking at me and almost into me. It was unnerving.
In short, I can honestly say I don't know how they track people over distances but they do. We are curious if our skinwalker will visit us here (god I hope not! lol) as our new residence has not had any sort of blessing ceremony, which acts as a deterrent for these things. Hopefully, we're not that interesting to it, lol!
