Ghost Story from the Land of the Head Hunters

Early Morning Funeral

Published by Borneo under , , , on 1:40 PM

This happen at Machan, Kanowit district. Also not far from Sibu. It was a funeral, early morning.

The Iban groups of elders & some golongan belia carried the coffin. Things was going well that morning... But before they left, they heard a howling/screaming. Its was a loud one. Immediately the elders knew what it was… Banshee*/Kokrel (as the local calls it).

Banshee, when it scream, is different. If its loud, thats mean she's far. But if the scream sounds weak..she's nearby. Banshee ussually targets man..for the testicles.They were scared like hell, cos usually the scream means death. The scream was getting soft & weak, so they knew she's getting near.

One of the elder, well, refuse to die without fighting. He took off his pants, unsheathed his parang & yelled, "Kitu dik..aku ngamput dik!". meaning "come here you...i'll f**k you!"The screams stopped.After that less 5 minutes of scary moments, they make haste back to their village. Its happened somewhere in the 90's.

* Banshee is a female spirit, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the otherworld. Although not always seen, when her mourning call is heard, usually at night, someone is about to die.
