Jumbees …. myth … folklore …

Folklore … consist of music, oral history, jokes, camp fire stories, proverbs, legends, popular beliefs, fairy tales and they are elements that are woven into every culture. Some cultures share these elements and call them by different names. We think these tales were created to keep social order, don’t go out after dark or the Jumbees might get you. Laughing it off or making fun of these old wives tales to shake off the fear of the unknown eases our minds … that is until we get outside … it’s dark … and we are all alone … then those fears, that we had as children scratch and claw at our sense of reasoning making their way back to the surface … turning us into that scared little kid …

So what are Jumbees?Also called Jumbie or Mendo, they are a type of mythological spirit or demon and is more common in the Caribbean countries folklore. Jumbee is a generic name given to all malevolent entities and there are numerous variations of jumbees that reflect the Caribbean’s complex history, drawing on African, East Indian, Dutch, British and even Chinese mythology.

In the First Issue of The Enigmatic Monster Project Dave Mornix of DAM Consulting wrote a short horror story titled Jumbees. A reason to stay in after dark.
