Approximately 1,500 people live on the reservation that travels across 178,000 acres of land that extends into Oregon's Blue Mountains, which is a notorious Bigfoot sighting area.
The Oregonian reported that the sounds are even causing grown men to be startled.
"It's causing an uproar around here," said Sylvia Minthorn, who lives near the swamp.
Colleen Chance, an employee who works at the tribal housing unit says she keeps a recording of the howls on her iPhone.
"It's kind of spooky," she said. "Some say it's foxes, some say it's a female coyote and some say it's Sasquatch. I don't know what it is."

John Franken, a housing authority interim director, told The Oregonian that some tenants are fearful of the noises, even pets are afraid to stray to far on walks.
No one is able to pinpoint where the sounds are coming from which is the most disturbing part of this story. With no way to explain the noises rumors have quickly spread that the roaring sounds are in fact Bigfoot himself.
Franken said the Bigfoot rumor entails a young Bigfoot getting separated from his family, sending out cries to reunite.
The Oregonian stated that Bigfoot is part of the tribal culture, tradition and spiritual beliefs, which is why ruling out the Bigfoot theory isn't going to happen.
However, wildlife program manager, Carl Sheeler, told The Oregonian that several animals are capable of making shrieking noises that echoing eerie sound.
The legend of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, is a supernatural one that falls into the same category as the Loch Ness monster and werewolves. Bigfoot is usually described as being 7-10 feet tall and weighing around 500-1000 pounds.
The ape-like creature is covered in dark brown or reddish hair and has a strong unpleasant smell by those who have claimed to encounter the beast.
Another notorious part of Bigfoot is well, his big foot!
This creature has been said to leave enormous footprints, which have been found to be as large as 24 inches!
However, the natives of Oregon have noticed 16-18 inch long and 'man like' prints.
Armand Minthorn, Sylvia Minthorn's uncle and tribal spiritual leader, said that they people of the Indian reservation will probably never know what made those noises.
