Jack D. Forbes explains in his book Columbus and other Cannibals that the wetiko is an american-indian
monster figure that represents a psychological disease. It gives the people a violent self-destructive
behavior on his own culture and condition. The term refers to a diabolically wicked
person or spirit who terrorizes others.
Native American mythologies portray the mythical figure of wetiko as a cannibalistic spirit who embodies
greed and excess and can possess human beings. The wetiko was once a human being, but its greed and
selfishness have transformed it into a predatory monster. Thus in indigenous mythology, indulgent,
selfdestructive habits are thought to be inspired by wetiko.
