Format
Video; VHS
Summary
In Senegal and throughout West Africa, illnesses are believed to be caused by supernatural external aggression. The diagnosis is made by a traditional healer, a shaman, whose job is to locate and then placate the spirits, the rab, that are responsible for the illness. The N'Deup healing ceremony shown in this video enlists the local community under the direction of the healer. Drumming, dancing, herbal cures, as well as ritual bloodletting are employed in a dramatic effort to soothe and appease the agitated spirit. The goal of this complex and colorful ceremony is a return to the inner harmony the patient had earlier enjoyed.
