LA LLORONA, THE WEEPING WOMAN OF MEXICO

LA LLORONA, THE WEEPING WOMAN OF MEXICO

  • La Llorona (“The Weeping Woman”) was said to be a villager named Maria who drowned her own children in a river in order to be with the man she loved.
  • When he rejected her, she drowned herself.
  • Now she haunts river banks, dressed in white and weeping for her children.
  • Sometimes she’ll try to kidnap living children as replacements, so Mexican kids are warned not to go out alone at night lest La Llorona snatch them away.
