The belief in duendes also is huge in the Philippines, which is no surprise considering that it was occupied by Spain for hundreds of years. I have
grand uncles/aunts and cousins from over there that believe in these things. Have never seen anything to make myself a believer, here in the U.S., so
I can't really comment on their existence.
But ya definitely call a paranormal specialist, if you are serious about finding things out.
yes, you are right. duende is a popular "creature" here in the Philippines. but, at this modern time these duendes are more referred as "little
angels" or "little devils". white duende(angel) and black duende(devil).
duende is actually a dwarf.
there is another type of duende but they are known here as the most powerful of all duendes. it is called in Filipino as "nuno sa punso". "Punso"
is a small pile of land formed like a hill standing at about 1-2 feet. it is where the "nuno" lives. once someone accidentally or intentionally
destroyed the "punso, the "nuno" would seek revenge by hurting the guilty party.
i think you better call an "albularyo"(witch doctor) and let him do the funk!
