KALISHA.  Probably from the Galla word kalisha (see note below), the plural form of kalu (s.), "sorcerer, wizard, witch doctor, magician; witchcraft." (A Galla-English, English-Galla Dictionary, Foot, 1913).
    Kalisha Buckhanon, an African-American novelist. (Wiki)

... Of the animals the serpent, "the father of the world," is the most worshipped, and many a cabin has its domestic snake.  The northern Gallas have priests and sorcerers; these latter, called kalisha, greatly dreaded on account of their incantations, pretend that they can dispose of the future at their will, causing life or death, and conjuring the evil spirit... (The Earth and Its Inhabitants: Africa, Reclus, v.1, 1886)
