Akerbeltz

by Olga Gomez
From the Basque language "aker" (male goat), and "beltz" (black). He protects against illnesses and evil spirits and he sends beneficial force fluxes to animals placed under its protection. From his name comes the word "aquelarre" that presently designs a secret meeting of evil witches adoring the Devil. But long ago, it was just an assembly of people celebrating in honour to this well-meaning being.
