We call them Mambabarang. They use witchcraft to harm or to maim. In the Philippines, Siquijor is infamously referred to as the island of witches because of their prominence there. They usually keep a swarm of carnivorous beetles in a bottle as medium to their dark arts. And sometimes they use the usual dolls and needles to hurt someone. Witches in our folktales have turned people into insects, fruits, animals, monsters etc. One must always be tactful when conversing with them, otherwise, a hex maybe placed on you. This work is part of the Folktale and Folklore Series.
