The Great Sasquatch Rebellion of 1892 was an uprising by Sasquatches against the Magical Congress of the United States of America that occurred in the year 1892.[1]


The MACUSA was less tolerant toward magical creatures than the wizarding governments of Europe, due to the risk they posed of exposing the wizarding world, and thus it can be presumed that the MACUSA angered the sasquatches by trying to exert control over them.[1] Many historians blame Irene Kneedander, Head of the Body for Protection of Magical Species, for attacking any Sasquatch who "stepped out of line".[2]

The onslaught of the Sasquatches ultimately forced the MACUSA to move its headquarters from Washington to New York: this was the fifth time since its inception that the seat of the wizarding government was relocated.[1]

Ortiz O'Flaherty's acclaimed book Big Foot's Last Stand covered the 1892 sasquatch rebellion in great detail.[1] Around 1926, the book was adapted into a Wizard Broadway play.[3][4]

Behind the Scenes

  • Sasquatch are native to the Pacific Northwest and Washington,D.C. is in located near the east coast, this would mean that they would have had to cross the country in order to riot in front of MACUSA.
