For the peoples of the North, the Wendigo is an ever present reality.

Perhaps a personification of hunger?

Perhaps where indigenous people had their tents and camp grounds.

But nowadays the Wendigo is very real.

One story, for example:

The Wendigo (spelt also as Windigo and Windego) (the plural form being Wendigoag) is a creature that can be found in the legends of the Native Americans, most notably amongst the Algonquian peoples.

These peoples are some of the most extensive and numerous of the Native American groups in North America, and they once lived all along the Atlantic Coast and the Great Lakes Region.

However, Wendigo-like creatures are also found in the legends of other Native American tribes, including the neighbors of the Algonquians, the Iroquois. Amongst these peoples, a creature known as the Stonecoat bears some similarities to the Wendigo. A Wendigo’s Insatiable Hunger Roughly translated, the word ‘Wendigo’ means ‘the evil spirit that devours mankind’.

Another translation, said to be made by a German explorer around 1860, equates the word ‘Wendigo’ with ‘cannibal’. Wendigoag are said to have an insatiable hunger for human flesh - no matter how much flesh they eat, they remain hungry. This hunger is reflected in their appearance, which, according to some, is extremely thin. Despite their gaunt physiques, Wendigoag are described by some as giants, measuring at about 4.5 m (14.8 feet) in height. Whilst there are slight variations as to the physical description of this creature amongst the different Algonquian peoples, it is generally agreed that Wendigoag have glowing eyes, long yellowed fangs and long tongues.

Most Wendigoag are also said to have sallow and yellowish skin, though others say that they are matted with hair or have decaying skin.

I grew up, and currently live in the Algonquin area. Spent many nights alone in the woods, and never encountered any form of crypto. I have heard that the wendigo story is more based on people experiencing cabin fever in the winter, which doesn't surprise me. Having spent a few winters isolated, (last winter it was six months straight besides a weekly trip into town,) I can understand how, a century or more back, that isolation, with no internet, tv, radio or telephone; combined with trying to live off of supplies that may not be enough to last the winter could lead to madness and maybe cannibalism.
