Shamanism -the backbone of Tribal Culture.
Join us as Mark Rapoport discusses the tribal groups of Northern Vietnam and the persistence of their shamanistic traditions. The talk will focus on the importance of old and new artefacts, paintings, and ceremonial tools used by the shamans. Mark will also discuss the practice and ethics of being a collector of these fascinating objects.
