Here in South Arica, the "little people" are a bit like our (killer) bees, not something to be f#%^ed with. The Tokoloshe is alive and the people
not so well!
As a kid ALLof the ladies that worked for us would have their beds on 5 or 6 bricks, HIGH off the ground. You did that because you did NOT want any
Tokoloshes in the night on your bed. I tried joking about it once and was reprimanded in the tone of voice normally reserved for guns and poison:
DON'T go there, you don't know what you are talng about.
Now this may sound like superstition, but many years later, about 2 years ago I had an encounter with a friend of mine that is a trainee sangoma.
Because of a very unique situation she called up the Ancestors, which was amazing to behold. She switched between different ancestors, one of which
was a grandparent of my wife, spoke perfect unaccounted Afrikaans talking about family things that were very private. Then I had a "conversation"
with them, full on telepathic immersion, non-verbal and truly amazing. The memories go very, very deep. Probably pre-language.
After that, I'll think twice before calling anything superstition. If someone says Tokoloshe, I'll find a high spot and THEN get out my camera
