The word Goofer is the Americanized version of the Congo word kufwa - to kill. It does not kill the enemy instantly, but works over time. The victims of Goofer dust may act Erratic, or Goofy. Eventually after suffering much hard luck and trouble, they sicken and die.

To Lay Down Goofer Dust

This is one of many ways to use Goofer Dust

You may sprinkle the Goofer Dust around an enemy's home, yard, or bedroom. Walk backwards as you sprinkle. This technique has been called 'throwing for someone' those you have thrown for are in danger of sickness and/or death.

The only way to clean the area is by performing a complete purifaction of the threshold.
