The Nuk-luk ("Man of the Bush") is a cryptozoological hominid reported in the National Park Reserve near Nahanni Butte, Northwest Territories, Canada between April and June 1964 by John Baptist, several men, and a boy named Jerry. Several Dene from Fort Liard who were trapping at a river reportedly came upon the creature in April 1964. It described as bigfoot-like creature but less ape and more neanderthal-like in resemblance, it was 5 feet tall, it also had a long, dark beard, and wore no clothes.


In June 1964, near Fort Simpson around 9 P.M. a boy named Jerry reported a similar creature. It had black hair on its head, upper body, and legs, and a black head, slightly pointed at the back. It also had a long, brown beard that reached its waist, and wore ankle-high boots, a moose skin loincloth, possibly moose-skin boots, and had a stone club in its hand. These creatures have been reported for hundreds of years and are said to have boot-like footprints and whistling calls. They have been reported from the Northwest Territories to Yukon to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.
