Haints: Ghosts and evil spirits from the old south

Haints: Ghosts and evil spirits from the old south

Southern legends of haints, ghosts, witches, booger men, boohags, and boodaddies 

Origination of haint beliefs.

What exactly is a "haint"?

Haint is an old southern word for a specific type of ghost or evil spirit from the Carolina coast, but found in tales from various regions of the south.  Belief in haints probably originated with the Gulla Geechee people, descendants of African slaves in the Carolina low country and barrier islands. In South Carolina, haints are malicious ghosts, often seeking to steal or harm naughty children (maybe used as a story to make unruly children behave?).

One online dictionary defines the word "haint" simply as a ghost. The tradition is more complex than that.

Felder Rushing, who wrote a book about the history of bottle trees , says the word haint is actually derived from early European roots: the verb "hanter," meaning to stalk or inhabit. He dates that word to about 1330. And he says the African-American word haint, used as a noun, was first recorded in 1843. ( Source ).

Other sources claim the word actually originated from the Welsh word haint, meaning infection, plague, or pestilence.

Haint blue: a color specifically for protection against ghosts

In Charleston, belief in haints was so common, they even spawned their own color of house paint.

In her " History of the Gullah Culture ," Marissa Polascak wrote, "There are many Gullah traditions, customs, and beliefs that are still being practiced today. For instance, the Gullah believe in witchcraft and paint their doors "haint blue" in order to ward off evil spirits and witches. There are people in the Gullah community that are thought to have the power to protect people from evil. If the Gullah believe that their houses are haunted by evil spirits, or are worried that a spirit will soon try to inhabit their dwelling, they will paste newspaper on their walls in order to distract the spirits from doing any harm."  

Still today in the low country of South Carolina, historic homes often feature a special hue of blue paint on the ceilings of their big, covered porches, or window shutters, sills, and doors. There are various explanations for this tradition, but one of the most common is that haint blue represents water to confuse haints,  which according to legend, can't cross over water. (1)(2)(3)

The color "haint blue" is so common in the south that the Sherwin Williams Co. mentions it on their website, with the following explanation: 

". . .  many Southerners suggest that blue porch ceilings originated out of the fear of haints. Southerners, especially in the area of South Carolina, have a name for the ceiling paint used on porches – the soft blue-green is referred to as 'Haint Blue.'

'Haints are restless spirits of the dead who, for whatever reason, have not moved on from their physical world,' says (Lori) Sawaya.

Haint blue, which can also be found on door and window frames as well as porch ceilings, is intended to protect the homeowner from being 'taken' or influenced by haints. It is said to protect the house and the occupants of the house from evil." (1)

Here's a website about Haints, where you can submit your own true ghost stories: True Tales of Southern Haints

How to get rid of haints

If you didn't use blue paint on your porch and windows to keep the haints away and now find yourself troubled by the bothersome spirits, how can you get rid of them? According to lore, these are some tried-and-true methods for distracting or getting rid of haints:

Bottle tree - The bottle tree originated in Africa and migrated to the US with the enslaved people. The bottles are said to catch wandering spirits at night, and hold them until they can be destroyed by the sunshine of daytime. 

Distracting haints with counting tricks - According to legend, haints can't resist certain repetitive tasks, such as reading newspapers pasted onto walls, or counting the straws in a broom, or grains of rice. The idea is to distract and frustrate the haints, who keep losing count and starting over again repeatedly. The haints will be forced to leave as morning approaches, having done no harm.

Clean the house - Burn sage or incense. Mop the floors with pine and camphor, and place salt across doors and windows, and in corners.

Do you know other methods for doing away with haints? Leave a comment.

Message from a reader remembering his grandfather

Denver-based motivational speaker Jonathan McMillan sent a great story fondly remembering his grandfather — a second-generation freed slave from a small town in Kansas.

"Just read your blog about haints. I came across it because I was reminiscing over my grandfather who used to mention haints anytime he would slide me some pocket change. He'd ask if I had any money, to which I'd reply 'no' and he would reach into his pants pocket, pull out a roll of cash, and peel off $5-$20 and say 'Just something to keep the haints off ya.' I now use the phrase when I'm laying some cash on my son." Incidentally, Jonathan McMillan is doing great work in Denver with helping at-risk youth and gang intervention. His website is here .

Haints discussed in the media

Apartment Therapy wrote about haint blue porches in 2014

In her article " Pretty & Practical: The History of 'Haint Blue' Porch Ceilings ," Taryn Williford advises that powder blue on the porch is a beautiful color choice for aesthetic as well as superstitious reasons, and reminds us that blue porches are popular up-and-down the east coast.

Haint blue porches discussed in Charleston newspaper

The Charleston Post Courier newspaper explains why Charleston's 'haint blue' porch ceilings have a tough history to track in this article . Something interesting in the article is that it says the city's official handbook for tour guides includes a chapter on "malevolent spirits in Gullah culture."

Discussion of haint blue, traditional indigo dyes, and slavery on Atlas Obscura

The fascinating article " What the Color ‘Haint Blue’ Means to the Descendants of Enslaved Africans ,"  by Shoshi Parks on Atlas Obscura (January, 2020), explores the complex relationship of indigo to enslavement, and traces the use of indigo dyes back to Africa.

Also on Atlas Obscura , the travel article " Haint Blue Porch Ceilings: The Lowcountry color with the power to stop evil from entering a home ," provides photos and addresses where visitors can see haint blue in use on the fine historic homes of Beaufort, South Carolina.

Article on The Awl says haint blue isn't a specific color but an idea

Katy Kelleher discusses the idea that haint blue is more of a cultural concept than an actual color in her article " Haint Blue, the Ghost-Tricking Color of Southern Homes and Gullah Folktales " published on The Awl 

"This Is the Only Ceiling Color You'll See on Lowcountry Porches," by Taylor Eisenhauer on southernliving.com .

Haints in To Kill a Mockingbird

Did you read the literary classic To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee, 1960)? You may not remember the mention of haints in chapter 28, when Jem and Scout are walking past the Boo Radley house, and talking about haints,"hot steams," and other spooky occurences. The implication being that Boo Radley is a scary character, maybe even himself a haint.

Did haints teach Robert Johnson to play guitar?

In the 2019 Netflix documentary " ReMastered: Devil at the Crossroads - A Robert Johnson Story " it's suggested that the origination of blues guitar legend Robert Johnson's story of selling his soul to the devil at a crossroads may have morphed from his habit of practicing in a graveyard. According to the documentary, Johnson (a very mediocre guitarist at the time) sought help from Ike Zimmerman who was known as one of the best guitarists in Mississippi. Zimmerman instructed Johnson to practice in the graveyard where no one would complain about his terrible noise, and to sit on a gravestone and let the haints teach him how to play. Whatever Johnson did, it worked!

The word ‘Haints’ in the 1941 movie King of the Zombies

The 1941 movie King of the Zombies  contains several mentions of the word “haints.” It’s not a great movie, nor is it really about ghosts, but it was interesting to hear the words “haints” and “hainted” used in the dialogue. 

The movie has a 5.7 / 10 rating on IMDB. At the time of this posting, the movie is available to watch on Amazon Prime and the DVD can be purchased on Amazon .

Southern ghost legends from other regions

The word "haint" is also used outside the low country, in other parts of the south, with slightly different aspects from region to region.

In Mississippi, haints could be ghosts, monsters, or even witches. Writer Matt Staggs says, "Just about everybody’s mamaw or papaw (southern for grandmother or grandfather) has a tale or two they can share about an old antebellum ruin, graveyard, or civil war battlefield said to have a haint attached to it." (5)

In the Pennyrile region of south central Kentucky, a haint is interchangeable with a ghost, but sometimes haints can only be heard and not seen. (6)

From the Appalachians to the Ozarks, and from Savannah to Alabama, haints, hanks, booger men, boohags, and boodaddies still haunt the woods, foggy hills and hollers, and darkened doorways of the southern imagination.

Not sure if this myth local to SW Florida or my family in general, but my grandparents, aunts and uncles used to tell us that if you were walking at night down a country road and hit a “warm spot” you crossed paths with a Haint. If you did cross one, you needed to go to the next crossroad and then double back or circle around as it would confuse the haint and it couldn’t follow you home.

Haints are also mentioned in one twilight zone episode “The Last Rite of Jeff Myrtlebank” the townsfolk thought that Jeff was one (correctly it seems at the end)

Thelma Whittington :

I’ve said HAINT all my life and never even thought about if it was a real word or not. I said to a friend today that I looked like a “HAINT!” She called in her husband whose mother always talked about HAINTS. They had looked it up and discovered it was indeed a real word. I’ve been reading these articles and laughing a lot at us southerners. My Mama was from Southeastern NC and my Daddy from Boone NC. It’s fun to know the word would be used in both areas. It’s not as bad as BLOODY BONES and RAWHEAD that my Daddy would threaten to call up from the woods “IF Y’ALL DONT GO TO SLEEP!”

Jennifer Smith:

My grandfather, Walter Hugh Smith, was a textile loom repairman from Roxboro North Carolina. He was a man of simple pleasures and fantastic expressions that are still the source of much amusement to his yankee grandchildren. One I recalled he and his best friend using in the animated tales they would tell, which often involved hunting, was “like a haint in Georgia.” I asked in childhood for the definition of a haint, but didn’t realize until tonight that it was probably an expression that meant either to chase or take off running. I assume this would adequately describe the behavior of many of the raccoons, rabbits, and squirrels their hounds chased. Thanks for the article.

Feb 24, 2022

Debra Slaughter:

Echoing Jonathan McMillan’s comment regarding the tradition of keeping cash on hand to “keep the haints off of you”. My grandfather (who was raised in central Georgia in the late 1800s) would also make the statement when slipping us a couple of dollars.

Super curious to know if there is a greater back story to this – wondering if it has to do with being able to buy something vs potential mischief one might get into if they don’t have any money.

Capt. Hank Jackson:

The first time I heard the word, “Haint”, was in 1969, while hunting in Mt. Olive, NC. It was a tradition on my father’s side of the family to small game hunt in Mt. Olive and surrounding areas. This time, I drove with my father and my hunting dog, Duke. A German Shorthaired Pointer. We My father loved to quail hunt. On this trip, my favorite, Uncle Ed, took the rabbit and coon dogs in his trailer. We departed Chester, PA at 10:00PM on Thanksgiving Eve to arrive at my Uncle Alonzo’s house at 7:00AM on Thanksgiving, the start of small game season.

I hunted with my Uncle Ed that day, my father took Duke and went to Faison to hunt with one of his old friends. That evening. they wanted to coon hunt, I passed on hunting that night. I was the one that drove to Mt. Olive.

I was stretched out on the bench behind my Uncle’s wood stove taking a nap waiting for them to come back. They came back early and started telling me and Uncle what had happened. The dogs were running a coon and it finally went up a tree. The dogs started acting strange, their tails were dropped between their legs and their ears were straight back. When my Uncle Ed, jumped a ditch, his flashlight went out. The the dogs jumped on a bush and started to bite and growl at it. My father said that a strong wind came out of no where and dogs started to whimper. My father’s friend ask my father if he knew where they were hunting. My father’s reply was Young’s Swamp. Well, his friend, William Leach, responded “that’s a cemetery across the ditch, where Ed is standing.” The dogs have treed a “Haint” At that point, all of the flashlight went out. When my Uncle Ed. jumped back over the ditch to them, all of the flashlights came back on. They put the leash on the dogs and headed back, leaving the coon up the tree if there was one.

I was 24 and the very first time I saw fear in my father’s face. That was it for the coon hunting.

Sorry for the long winded story, but “Haints” do get my attention. I’ve never encountered one in all of my years, but still keeping an open mind.

berniece c thomas:

I was 13 when i saw these …haints. i am from deep south Louisiana. As i had just gone to bed i couldnt fall asleep. The last thi g my mom said to me was put your feet under the ctover or the devil will pull your toes.,something she told me often. I pulled my toes in & then i saw “them”. As i lay in my bed i face the door & just outside my door were these shadowy figures , men walking back & forth in front of my door. They were laugbing together & looking at me.i could not hear them but i could see them completly .except their feet. As i looked to see their feet they were suddenly in my room.next to my bed.i realized that as long as i kept eye contact with them they could not “get” me that is when i tried calling for my momma & realized i couldnt make a sound.i felt paralyzed.i knew i couldnt close my eyes so i held them open with my fingers. I kept trying to call momma until i was able to force a small sound out then screamed for my momma who came running. To the best of my knowledge this is all true. Tears run down my face as i tell this today some 50 years later.

I volunteer in the Highland County Museum 24465… located on the perimeter of the Civil War battlefield (Sitlington’s Hill) where General Stonewall Jackson’s troops fought the blue bellies in 1862. Each side claims victory but fact is, was closer to a draw. The Museum building was owned by both sides (Blue and Gray)…and it was headquarters and a crude hospital where arms and legs were removed from wounded soldiers screaming from the pain. As they were removed, they were tossed out the window. The old brick building is sturdy as day one, has a red metal roof, creaky wooden floors and steps up to the second floor. I believe there is a ghost, I named her Miss Haint…she has never spoken to me, she walks the floors and they creak… she spends most of her time in the operating room where many died most cried and maybe that included her. Once I said “hello Miss Haint… she scurried up the steps.” We do not have a blue porch roof “YET”.

bob mull-owens:

My family in Western North Carolina had a 195 year old history of some of the male members of my family being “sin eaters”. We were constaintly a battling real or imagined haints. My great grand uncle Walter were the last. He passed without a son! I was given the honor of being an adopted son and shared with him over his fine chineberry coffin a feast of fried chicken, okra, black eyed peas, buttermilk biscuits, mashed taters, corn on the kob, 4 pork spareribs, varias fixins and 2 small cups of pure well water, and 2 small cupe of Southern Comfort, one cup for each of us.Uncle Walters sins were banished. I need to get a movin to get me a son a real soon. I aint got but one haint named mulla, who makes me bargin real good at garage sales and swap meets. Dr Bob Mull. Las Vegas

Gameplay [ ]

The game is mostly stealth-based; Tilo can run around and hide in various objects in order to avoid detection from enemies. Combat is limited; for example, some items can be found and used to knock out Rat Guards. For the most part, however, the game is traversed through stealth.

The game operates on a quest system, where Tilo will receive story quests and optional quests to progress through the game. Some of these quests involve finding various items, some of which reward Tilo with disguises and new skills.

The game takes place in a medieval fantasy world populated by several species of animals. Prior to the game's story, an event called the War of the Green Flame took place, in which many of the animal kingdoms were wiped out by the Green Flame and its undead army. The Mice tried to make peace with it by revealing the weaknesses of the other kingdoms, but were decimated regardless. The Rats eventually made their stand on the island of Periclave , extinguishing the Green Flame and winning the war. Because of their treachery, the Mice lost their seat on the Council of Asper , and the Rats have since taken over most of the world as the major political and military power.

The game begins with a minstrel Mouse named Tilo waking up in Dwindling Heights Keep after being knocked unconscious in the presence of Baron Osdrik . He begins searching for his wife, Merra , and escapes his cell after receiving a Mysterious Message . He travels through the keep, avoiding the Rat Guards, until he comes to the roof, where he meets the Signal Rat, Silas , who had sent him the message. Silas agrees to help Tilo find Merra, if the Mouse will help him find a chest of mysterious coins in the labyrinth beneath the keep.

The Supreme Court orders makers of gun parts to comply with rules on ghost guns

The U.S. Supreme Court is seen, Oct. 5, 2023, in Washington.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday ordered two internet sellers of gun parts to comply with a Biden administration regulation aimed at ghost guns, firearms that are difficult to trace because they lack serial numbers.

The court had intervened once before, by a 5-4 vote in August, to keep the regulation in effect after it had been invalidated by a lower court. No justice dissented publicly from Monday’s order, which followed a ruling from a federal judge in Texas that exempted the two companies, Blackhawk Manufacturing Group and Defense Distributed, from having to abide by the regulation of ghost gun kits.

Other makers of gun parts also had been seeking similar court orders, the administration told the Supreme Court in a filing.

“Absent relief from this Court, therefore, untraceable ghost guns will remain widely available to anyone with a computer and a credit card — no background check required,” Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, the administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer, wrote.

The regulation changed the definition of a firearm under federal law to include unfinished parts, like the frame of a handgun or the receiver of a long gun, so they can be tracked more easily. Those parts must be licensed and include serial numbers. Manufacturers must also run background checks before a sale — as they do with other commercially made firearms.

Trending now

The requirement applies regardless of how the firearm was made, meaning it includes ghost guns made from individual parts or kits or by 3D printers.

The regulation will be in effect while the administration appeals the judge’s ruling to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans — and potentially the Supreme Court.

Ghost stories.

A collection of spooky short fiction by Edith Wharton and a historical nonfiction narrative about a woman who claimed to be haunted.

By Sadie Stein

Dear readers,

We all have our forms of escapism.

Whenever something very difficult has happened in my life, I have taken refuge in ghost stories. In the case of bereavement, the reasons seem clear enough; and maybe in every other case too — the possibility of the unexplainable can be a balm when the world itself feels beyond our understanding. October is designated haunting season, but the uncanny is perennial. There are almost too many ghost stories to choose from — Sarah Waters’s “Affinity, ” Marghanita Laski’s“The Victorian Chaise-Longue” and Virago’s peerless collection of ghost stories have all gotten me through a lot — but your time is valuable, so I’ll limit myself here to two of my favorite comfort reads.

“Ghosts,” by Edith Wharton

Fiction, 1937

“‘No, I don’t believe in ghosts, but I’m afraid of them,’ is much more than the cheap paradox it seems to many,” Wharton wrote in her preface to this collection. Wharton was not an avowed believer, but like many writers she found the ghost story to be the perfect medium (pun intended) for exploring questions of sexuality, class and consciousness. And given her mastery of all three subjects it should come as no surprise that the stories in this collection are a paradigm not just of the genre but of short fiction generally.

Because it collects stories written between 1902 and 1937, it’s a faithful chronicle of a changing world: Read “The Lady’s Maid’s Bell” — featuring a full staff of servants — followed by “All Souls,’” among the last written in this collection, in which an elderly matron is left alone and helpless (one of the subtlest scary stories ever written, for my money). The relationship between classes is a recurring preoccupation; so is real estate; so is repression. Is my favorite “The Pomegranate Seed,” that amazing exploration of jealousy? Or “Miss Mary Pask,” a meditation on aging? Or maybe the Jamesian “The Eyes”? How to choose?

Read if you like: Any Edith Wharton novel; no Edith Wharton novels; if you love ghost stories; if you hate ghost stories Available from: NYRB Classics — and I do think this is one you’ll want a physical copy of, if only to better read before bed. But many of the stories can be found individually online. And here is a different version , not sequenced by Wharton, containing a number of the same stories.

“The Haunting of Alma Fielding: A True Ghost Story,” by Kate Summerscale

Nonfiction, 2020

In 1938, a young matron in the London suburbs claimed to be the subject of a dramatic possession; as she recounted to the avid tabloids, her home was suddenly full of flying objects and her person regularly assaulted by violent attacks. She also suddenly had the ability to manifest live insects and pieces of jewelry. The story ultimately garnered the attention of a psychical researcher named Nandor Fodor, who became deeply invested in the case and made the woman, Alma Fielding, the subject of increasingly intrusive and public scientific tests. Was Fielding a fraud or a phenomenon — or was she just very unwell? The same could be asked of her investigator. And who, if anyone, was exploiting whom?

Summerscale, always a deft and humane storyteller, brings this deeply uncomfortable story to life with characteristic élan; the focus of one’s outrage and sympathy shifts from chapter to chapter, and the evocation of a (barely) between-the-wars Britain is vivid.

Read if you like: “Devil in the White City,” “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” Available from: Wherever fine books are sold. I like the Moravian in Bethlehem, Pa., because it’s supposedly haunted

Why don’t you …

See how it all started? I don’t think there’s a book in my library I recommend more than Deborah Blum’s “Ghost Hunters: William James and the Scientific Hunt for Proof of Life After Death.” (In fact, I seem to have loaned out both my copies!) Amid the spiritualism craze of the 19th century, a group of respected scholars, including Henry James’s brother, a titan of American psychology, seriously undertook psychical research — which proved thorny, inconclusive and utterly fascinating.

Hear a bump in the night? For obvious reasons, ghost stories make incredible audiobooks . Vernon Lee — the pen name of Violet Paget — was one of the great Victorian ghost-story scribes (often using the supernatural to encode queer themes), and “A Phantom Lover” is an atmospheric, eerie pleasure.

Get extra credit? One of Edith Wharton’s best ghost stories, “The Looking Glass,” is not in the collection I recommended above, but it is in her book “ The World Over. ” It’s about an aging beauty in thrall to spiritualism, and contains this incredible quote: “There was nothing she wouldn’t do for you, if ever for a minute you could get her to stop thinking of herself … and that’s saying a good deal, for a rich lady. Money’s an armor, you see; and there’s a few cracks in it. But Mrs. Clingsland was a loving nature, if only anybody’d shown her how to love. … Oh, dear, and wouldn’t she have been surprised if you’d told her that! Her that thought she was living up to her chin in love and love-making.”
