Skinwalkers, in Native American lore, are people who possess the power to take on the shape of different animals.

Real World MythEdit

In legend, a skinwalker is most frequently seen as a coyote, wolf, fox, eagle, owl, or crow but have the power to assume the form of any animal they choose.

Most sources describe the Navajo skinwalker as evil due to the rituals necessary to attain the power.


Teen Wolf Executive Producer Jeff Davis explained to Teen Wolf News that he worked closely with a Navajo consultant in developing the skinwalker characters for the show.
