The ritual of the healing dance is one such area. This dance has been the main focus of religious life among the Kung

THE KUNG, a former gathering and hunting society living in the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa, have been intensively filmed, studied, and interviewed by anthropologists for over thirty years. The ritual of the healing dance is one such area. This dance has been the main focus of religious life among the Kung. At weekly dances, while the women clap and sing, men and women dancers enter a trance-like state and go among the assembled Kung, laying on hands and casting a shield of spiritual energy over the group.

This is a treasure.
It is the Kalahari Bush people who are the story here.
They speak click language.
-A living experience of an indigenous culture's intimate healing rituals.
The photos are touching. The rituals are delightful and palpably real.
The personal profiles are playful, honest, and humane.
The story of a simple people living on the edge of survival and thriving on the spirit that sustains them.
Richard Katz, the author , has a gift for respecting the reality of the peoples he studies and enriching the lives of those who read his work.
How we could learn from the wisdom of these !Kung people.!!!

Taking a medical anthropology course, the teacher happened to assign this obscure ethnography of the Kalahari !Kung. It's an easy read, a fast read, and if you lend a bit of trust to the author Richard Katz, you get a critical view into the probably now vanished !Kung of South Africa (they've been placed on reservations by the then white South African government). The focus of this ethnography is the ritual healing dances of the !Kung, where healers dance to attain "num", an ancestral/divine energy that has tons of physiological affects, whereby they achieve "kia", an altered state of consciousness utilized in their mode of healing. Films I've seen of the Kalahari !Kung show the healers screaming (known as kowhedili) and "pulling sickness" from fellow tribesmen and women. This book is a great read about a modern hunter-gatherer tribe, by now probably vanished from the face of the earth. Indexicality incompatibility is fairly bridged by Katz, and his concluding recommendation about traditional !Kung practices and correlations to modern cummunity medical outreach strategy is useful. An old ethnography (1982) but a goodie.

A moving and inspirational anthropological study of a remarkable people and their healing traditions. On waking, the healers intuitively know which members of the tribe have fallen sick during the night. The health and integrity of the tribe are thus preserved - a clear evolutionary advantage of telepathy. But is there an optimal size for the effective functioning of this ecological 'holarchy'? In modern, high-density urban society the mother's intuitive sense of her baby's health just about survives, but the sense of group belonging is a shadow of what you find among the Kalahari Kung. Reading this book will help preserve the wisdom of a people who may not survive the assault from 21st century values.
