#2317: Mme Max and Fillette Lalo: Auguste comments


To Dotie Joseph: 

In the Haitian folkloric song, Fillette Lalo is only capable of "eating" ti 
moun (children). Mme Max Adolphe "ate" adults at Fort Dimanche. During the 
Duvalier time, the sobriquet "fillette lalo" was given to the female version 
of the "Volontaires pour la Securite Nationale" a/k/a  VSN a/k/a Tonton 
macoutes (who were of the male gender). 

The legendary fillette lalo "existed" prior to Mme Max Adolphe.
