Tokoloshe is originally a Zulu word that can be written as “Tikolôsj” (Zulu) Tikoloshe, Tokkolosh, Tokeloshe, Tokkelossie (Afrikaans) or even Tjikolosi. There is no easy or direct translation as it seems to be used to describe a single creature as well as a group of different creatures. According to various websites it is sometimes called a Hili, Uhlakanyana or Gilikango (unsubstantiated).
The name may sound amusing but to many people it represents fear, hatred rape and torment. This creature is more than a myth – it’s a belief and it’s always out there – waiting for its chance!
The pentagram is an extremely ancient and natural symbol that can be seen in the stars, flowers, crystals, starfish and the extremities of the human body. It is also the shape created when two arrowheads are laid on top of the other.
