Mentawai Shaman: Keeper of the Rain Forest
by Charles Lindsay
Publisher's Description
San Francisco-born Charles Lindsay, an ethnographic/naturalist photographer based in Tokyo, first entered the rain forest of Siberut in 1984, hitching a ride in a dugout canoe. He has returned many times, intrigued by the people of the Siberut forest, the Mentawaians. This book records their courageous attempt to retain their original culture and innocence, and focuses on Lindsay's relationship with a shaman who guided him through the rituals of this forest society. The result of this relationship is this colorful portfolio of 80 dramatic photographs, augmented with excerpts from Lindsay's journals.
