Have you ever heard of the Stikini? If you've lived in Oklahoma a while you've probably heard a story or two about these terrifying supernatural creatures. Without a doubt they're one of Sooner State's scariest legends.

So what are they and where did they come from? The Stikini is centered in Native American folklore and originated from the Seminole tribe. Real or myth these creatures are the stuff of true terror and nightmares!

Stikini are shapeshifters that transform into owl-like creatures at night. During the day they look like ordinary people, but once it's dark out they can turn themselves into a hideous, hybrid-humanoid monster of pure evil.

Hit play on the video below to learn more about the terrifying Oklahoma Stikini!

They've been described as witch-like creatures, not fully human or owl when fully transformed. They prey on sleeping humans, preferably children feasting upon the still-beating hearts of their victims. They hunt at night and must transform back into their human form before daylight or perish. Similar to vampire lore.

To change from human to Stikini they must vomit up and remove their internal organs and hide them somewhere in the woods, usually on or near a tree. After they feed they have to return to the woods, retrieve their organs and reinsert them in order to transform back into human form. It's disturbing and disgusting!

Stikini are one of the most terrifying Native American legends and the stuff of nightmares. If you're ever in the woods and see what appears to be a skinny witch-looking figure wandering through the trees run!

More details on the Stikini, scary sightings, and stories from Sasakwa, Oklahoma!

Stikini are able to appear as human, owl, or as an owl-human type creature. The entire tale and hopefully just a myth is totally insane. Especially how they transform and remove their internal organs. Everything about this mythical creature is horrific. No wonder most people are spooked by owls and think they're a bad omen.

One thing's for sure, this legend would make one hell of a horror movie! Honestly, I'm surprised someone hasn't made a movie about this yet. Of course, a lot of people believe that just by talking about these dreaded and evil creatures it will draw them to you. Mentioning their name invokes their attention and deadly attack.
