 The shampe is a malevolent, ogre-like monster of Chickasaw folklore. In some legends he attempts to abduct Choctaw women; in others, he is a man-eater. He is sometimes described as a giant and other times as a large hairy man, leading some people to associate him with the Bigfoot legend. His most salient feature is his smell-- a shampe's smell is so overpowering that a person cannot bear to be around him, making him difficult to fight.
