Guides and Gurus: Namibia (2007)
Only available in United States
San and Himba people of Namibia have practiced healing for over 10,000 years. They have a vast arsenal of healing plants which is important since they do not have access to modern medicine. Everyone learns about these medicines. It is not a practice limited to a few select individuals. Rather, everyone needs to know these things so the knowledge is not lost. Come with us as the San and Himba tribes of Namibia share with us their complex healing rituals and take us on a tour of the medicinal plants that have been used to heal for endless generations.
