Tituba, also called Tituba Indian, was one of the first three people accused of practicing witchcraft during the Salem witch trials which took place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Tituba was the third person accused by Betty Parris and Abigail Williams of witchcraft. She was, however, the first person to confess to witchcraft in Salem Village.
She at first denied that she had anything to do with witchcraft, but
was then quickly coerced into confessing to having spoken with the Devil. Elizabeth and Abigail then went on to accuse the other two women, Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne.[1]
Other women and men from surrounding villages were accused and arrested
of witchcraft at the Salem witchcraft trials. Not only did Tituba
accuse others in her confession, but she talked about black dogs, hogs,
a yellow bird, red and black rats, cats, and a wolf. Tituba talked
about riding sticks to different places. Tituba confessed that Sarah
Osborne possessed a creature with a head of a woman, two legs, and
wings. By mixing the different views on witchcraft she unintentionally
set Salem Village into chaos by hinting that Satan was among them.[2]where I found results!
