Acheri -
A demonic spirit from Native American and eastern mythology, the Acheri takes the form of a little girl and delights in spreading disease to children and the elderly. She is often seen as a frail little girl with pale grey skin who lives in the mountains. When disturbed by human activity she will come down from the mountain and dance into festivals and harvests in order to attract children to her. Children are then infected by the Acheri casting its shadow on them. In some cases the Acheri was once a child who died of a painful and horrible disease. 
The Archeri feeds on misery. The more people she infects and the more misery she causes the stronger and happier she will become. This makes her increasingly difficult to remove from a village or town as her illnesses are usually contagious and easily spread. 
The only way to protect children from an Acheri is to make them wear red items of clothing, beads or other red talismans  It is believed that wearing red can help ward off evil spirits, including the Acheri. In Hindu mythology an Acheri cannon be stopped, instead one must distract it in order to stop it spreading diseases. Building a shrine of lights and cake in a remote location is usually what is recommended to keep an Acheri distracted. The Chippewa believe that the best way to remove an Acheri is to place a red cloth, that has been blessed by a medicine woman, around the spirit’s neck. This will finally let the spirit rest.
