Curing illness (and the trance dance)


Lucy Lloyd !kun notebooks


When people are ill, some of the people 'doctor' the afflicted person and stand and make various gestures. Other people sing (and do not make gestures). Other people beat the drum. Dreams put 'a thing' into a person and makes them unwell.
