IMO, here the reference is to a bunch of Malia spirits.
The shamans at moonbroth used medicine bundles, Oakfed fires and disease spirits to attack their enemies. They called them "broos" for contempt, but they used Broos Ghosts, actually (or maybe mad head ghosts... what obut a tien shaman at Moonbroth?).

Ciao,
