    Folklore Navajo - Chindi- Within the Navajo belief system, there resides a special type of spirit known as a chindi. Normally the byproduct of violence—whether accidental or during warfare—a chindi is made up of everything that was bad about the person who died. Failing to properly honor the burial of a person can also bring about a chindi, as well as even mentioning the deceased’s name, which is why the Navajo don’t speak of their dead. Sometimes the chindi would even terrorize an entire family for decades, as in the case of the Long Salt family, who were said to have been tormented for over 100 years. The house or possessions of a dead person are the most likely places to find a chindi, which is why they are often isolated or destroyed outright. Because of this, the Navajo try and have deaths take place outside so the house doesn’t become haunted. Medicine men are said to be able to place a curse on people who wrong them, and the afflicted become tormented by a chindi. In addition, the Navajo believe a disease known as “ghost sickness” will arise from contact with one of these spirits.
