They were always called skin walkers or similar. Even in Navajo...... Which is where the translation came from.......
So..... No offense but I don't get this post...

Here’s an encounter I had in Arizona:
Something I forgot about when I typed it up:
As I was leaving my motel that morning I stopped at a little Native American gas station to grab a cigar, and for some reason I felt compelled to tell the older Native American man working the register about what I saw. I was thoroughly freaked out at that point. He just laughed in a weird way and said “Usually they don’t mess with white people..”

Shapeshifters. To the Native Americans...Shapeshifters and Skinwalkers for 1,000 years.
Nothing's changed...just because non-natives are now talking about it.
What the point? You're whole premise talks only about the last 30 yrs of internet or so.
You're about 970 yrs late to the common acceptance by us. (Cherokee- me-1/2)..and all tribes. Go ask a shaman...

I absolutely believe you and what an experience!!! You can tell people, and they can think whatever they want and some may not believe, but you know what you experienced. That is why I keep an open mind on things. You just never know.
Btw. We have a photo somewhere of our family standing on the four corners. We always thought that was neat little spot. Very mystical area out there.
While my dad was in New Mexico he purchased some handmade jewelry from a Native man. I've had it for many years, but every time I see it I think of his story I posted above.
to show, it was not something easily looked up or talked about at that time (again by non native), but that his personal story seems to reflect those of what we now (non-natives) know as skinwalkers.
I do believe that what my dad was referencing was skinwalkers
Most Native Americans won’t even talk about them or say their real name out loud.
