WHAT IS A PUK-WUD-JIE?The Puk-Wud-Jies live in unspoilt forests, dwelling in small and well-hidden communities. They are shape changers and can become any creature. Despite their diminutive size, Puk-Wud-Jies move with great speed and agility.
Who's to say that these little people didn't migrate across the US to the Northwest .. where the mountains are plentiful and the last of the shape shifting pukwudgies can live in peace?
