The Navajo became more concerned with personal property, capitalism, sexual perversion, revenge, and occult practices. In turn, Johnson revealed, skinwalkers started performing more nefarious deeds against their own tribe as in-fighting grew amongst the community. There had always been clans the white men called Navajo, and these subgroups became more important than the umbrella group or "tribe" (Navajo Nation).
- SKIN-WALKER: In some Native American lore and legends, a skinwalker is a person with the supernatural ability to turn into any animal he or she desires. To be able to transform, or shape shift, sometimes requires that the skin-walker wear a pelt of the animal. In most cases, this skin is not used in modern times because it is an obvious sign of them being skin-walkers. Similar lore can be found in cultures throughout the world and is often referred to as shapeshifting by anthropologists.

In one such tale, a Navajo tracker named Darren confronted a creature that had been stalking his wife and children in a remote part of the reservation. "When it stood up, it was eight or nine feet tall," Johnson reported, "covered in hair and it had ram horns that came off the side of its head."
Armed with a rifle, Darren shot the creature three times in the chest and saw the bullets make impact. But it managed to escape the area. Eerily, he would learn a few days later that a "medicine man had died of a heart attack," leading him to conclude that this man had been using his skinwalker abilities to torment Darren's family.

Around dawn, the men were stunned to see 15-20 little people who stood only 12 to 18 inches tall and were heading toward the sheep corral. They were dressed in buckskin and armed with bows or spears, essentially resembling "miniature Natives" in the words of the witnesses, who chased them away from the area but lost sight of them during the pursuit.

One of the most interesting revelations made during Johnson's appearance was the explanation of what a chupacabras ("goat sucker" creatures) are. They are drawn on petroglyphs (such as one invaders dubbed "Newspaper Rock") and petrographs (such as ancient Buddhist rock art from Ili river, Kazakhstan in Central Asia north of Afghanistan) because the Native Americans are well aware of them, and the Navajo explain that they pushed them out of the area by agreement. They stealthily sneak back in to feed from time to time, which is a violation of that agreement. The stone art shows them to be humped bipedal creatures with large tubular snouts for drawing blood, like a giant mishmash preta (Buddhist "hungry ghost," which are depicted as shapeshifting entities with giant bellies and tiny mouths).
