curupiraHi Victor,

About a week ago, I met with a friend from Brazil, who told me about a character from Brazilian folklore called the Curupira, who seems to be the Brazilian form of the Hoodoo. Apparently his feet are turned backward so that those following him will go the wrong way, he usually rides a hedgehog, and a meeting with Curupira is a sign of terrible luck to come.

Regards,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Actually the “curupira” is not a hoodoo like character. It is a Brazilian folklore character relating to the protection of the forest. Legend says he creates illusions so that hunters and violators get confused and lost, and his backward feet mean to confuse hunters going after him! Br,
