The Great Shaman - Healing in the Kalahari

Der große Schamane - Heilkunst in der Kalahari

Boo! Xunta is the most famous healer in all the region in the Khaudum National Park in north-eastern Namibia. Among the about 1,000 San who live in the around 9,000 square-kilometre self-governed community project of the Nyae Nyae Conservancy, he is a shining light. Not only because of his skills as a traditional healer, but primarily because of his leadership when it comes to dealing with today's difficult circumstances. Boo! Xunta is also considered an experienced hunter. As an intermediary between this world and the beyond, the spiritual protection during the hunt is among his tasks. He gives his people the strength to overcome all the dangers of living with wild animals. And almost everyone here can tell a story about that.
