JIVE BOOK REVIEW: The Shaman by John A. Grim
In this episode of the Jive Book Review we will look at The Shaman: Patterns of Siberian and Ojibway Healing by John A. Grim. He describes the common features of the figure known as "the shaman" by anthropologists which is found mainly in cultures of Siberian origin: with his focus mainly on the Yakut of Siberia and the Ojibwe Indians aka Chippewa, or Saulteaux Anishinaabe people of southern Canada and the northern Midwestern USA. I attempt to compare the features of the shaman and of shamanic religious practices to Indo-European religious customs, particularly in Nordic Germanic religion.
The video version will be uploaded to YouTube next week.
