Baniwa Shamanic Revitalization – Inauguration of the Shaman’s House

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies is honored to support the Baniwa Shamanic Revitalization, which includes the filming and creation of a documentary record of snuff-jaguar shaman "Mandu" Manuel da Silva's practice and knowledge; organizing meetings to discuss aspects of indigenous culture and shamanic traditions; and the construction of a Shamans' House (now complete), which will serve as a catalyst for activities to strengthen and revitalize indigenous culture of the Baniwa people of the Aiary River.
