Every country and civilization has its share of mysteries, strangeness and legends to reveal or sometimes for some not to reveal. In this new article, we will take the direction of the American continent and take a close interest in a history that is part of Amerindian folklore. Let’s discover together Acheri, the Indian urban legend .
According to Indian and Amerindian traditions, Acheri would be the ghost of a little girl whose physical appearance is close to that of a skeleton and who would wear a dress made entirely of animal skin.
According to legend, it appears during the night near a mountain in which it rests during the day. When she leaves her den it is to haunt the living humans near her territory. She particularly attacks children and if they come into contact with her evil shadow, they will become seriously ill.
As for the paranormal phenomena that would indicate his presence, he said to himself that if one hears a drumming sound as well as a voice singing sinisterly in the valleys where the Indian and/or Amerindian tribes reside then it means that Acheri comes to announce the imminent death of a child.
It would always seem according to the myth that the only way to protect yourself from Acheri and wear a red string around your neck and clothes of the same color. Apparently thanks to this we can listen to his lugubrious song without worries. Is that really possible? It is not as simple as that.
The testimony of a man who would have witnessed the appearance of the skeletal Indian girl has reached us.
The individual would one day want to hear the sound of Acheri’s voice as she began to sing. To reassure his mother who, like all the members of his tribe, were afraid of Acheri, the man wore a string around his neck and red clothes, as legend has it, to protect himself against this demonic spirit. When the time finally arrived, the young man went late into the night near the mountain with a torch to light himself and hope to see the ghost of this girl who frightens everyone so much. When he heard the sound of a tam tam and the sound of a distant but perceptible voice, it froze his blood. Despite the torch, he still did not see it coming but Acheri decided to show herself. But she would have appeared to him so abruptly in front of him shouting in a high voice that the individual made his torch fall out of fear and took his legs to his neck. Since this episode, the man has remained traumatized for life and has forbidden his children to attempt this experience.
