The Sacred Plant Of The AmazonStreaming Video - 2014
The ayahuasca -or Banisteriopsis caapi- is considered sacred and has been used by 72 different tribes throughout the Amazon region for centuries. In Columbia, on the Amazon plain of Mocoa, Bernard Fontanille sets out to gain a better understanding of the traditional uses of ayahuasca, known locally as "Yagé." The Inga shaman, or "Taïta," Aureliano Chindoy, leads him into ancestral territories. For Aureliano, Yagé transforms human beings and is the source of all medicinal knowledge.
