9780500517253: Shamanic Regalia in the Far North

An astonishing window into Shamanism and the worldviews of our distant ancestors in the Ice Age

The Northwest coast makes up one of the last regions on earth to be traversed by Western explorers. In this region an ensemble of related peoples created a large cultural universe derived from the cross-fertilization of ideas, oral traditions, and art. The shaman’s cosmos was divided into three worlds, Lower, Middle and Upper, where the spirits ruled. With supernatural helpers, shamans sought to manipulate the environment, making use of regalia and objects that bequeath an acute sense of the animistic world that reflects the early interactions between man and nature.

Structuring her account by the three geographical regions, Patricia Rieff Anawalt not only probes deeply into the significance and meaning of the shamanic practices, but also points up the intriguing differences in the ritual garb across the vast territories concerned as generation after generation sought to influence events through the aid of spirits.

108 illustrations in color and black and white

Review :

“The strength of the book lies in its attractive and well-curated photographs of various costumes and artifacts, and in its detailed descriptions of both the materials and the designs of shamanic paraphernalia and art. Anawalt is at her best with her visual choices, and her nuanced ability to bring the costumes to life through vivid description.”
- Journal of Anthropological Research

Description du livre Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Patricia Rieff Anawalt probes deeply into the significance and meaning of shamanic practices in Northeast Siberia, Alaska and British Columbia, and also points up the intriguing differences in the ritual garb as generation after generation sought to influence events through the aid of spirits. From the prehistoric Ice Age up to the 20th century, related peoples across these vast territories created a wide cultural universe derived from the cross-fertilization of ideas, oral traditions and art. With supernatural helpers, shamans sought to ensure their peoples survival by controlling and pacifying the spirits of the animal world. It was vital to have the right clothing and equipment: it not only protected the shamans and enabled them to wield their power over the spirits, but also created a powerful mystique among their human clients. The surviving items of regalia, often collected by anthropologists under the most challenging circumstances, bequeath an acute sense of the animistic world and the early interactions between man and nature, offering us an astonishing window into the worldviews of our distant ancestors.
