LECTURE: The Midnight Barn Dance of 100 Spirits: Ozark Daemonology
Taking the famous Japanese idiom “Hyakki Yagyō” or “Night Parade of One Hundred Demons” as inspiration, we will be focusing on my research into the Ozark region’s own pandemonium. Since 2012 I’ve been categorizing and compiling magical creatures from Ozark folklore as well as my own work as a spirit medium into this Midnight Barn Dance. We’ll all join in on the fun together and look at a number of the creatures, although sadly not all 100. Specifically we will be focusing on plant-spirit daemons, or those spirit entities that inhabit inside or take the form of specific plant species. Field guide information includes the daemon’s habitat in our world as well as designations in the Ozark Otherworld, temperament, diet, characteristics, method of exorcism, and of course, information on how these daemons might benefit a cunning magical worker.
