About this product
- DescriptionThis ethgraphic study was conducted among the Kariri-Shoc, an indigeus people of Northeast Brazil. The research focused on Kariri-Shoc shamanism as a medical kwledge. The interrelation between gendered embodiment and shamanism provided the possibility of observing how Kariri-Shoc specialized kwledge relates to gendered embodiment and female embodied subjectivity. Kariri-Shoc shamanic specialists explain that the body opens during sexual intercourse and when women experience menstrual and post-delivery blood fluxes. I describe three different kinds of Kariri-Shoc cure-healing rituals which have the purpose of closing the patient's body. The reza (prayer) ritual is one of the first steps that Kariri-Shoc people take towards cure-healing processes. Specialists experience embodiment during cure-healing rituals, when the nature of the patient's health problem is discovered, diagsed, and treated. I have discussed and demonstrated that Kariri-Shoc kwledge of the body relates to the openness and closedness of the body, which provides basis for sexual differences perceptions and experiences intertwined with gender embodiment.
