Rediscovery of Shamanic Heritage
Mihály Hoppál, Gábor Kósa
Akadémiai Kiadó, 2003 - Social Science - 360 pages
"This volume is based on a conference on shamanic heritage that took place at the Hungarian Culture Foundation, Budapest, in April 2000. Some two dozen experts came together from Korea, the US, Russia, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium and Hungary. The meeting was a success in terms of scholarly debates and genuine presentations including some film documents on shamanic rituals from different cultures. In the course of discussions, the cultural value of shamanism has been re-evaluated as the heritage of humanity, the important source of performing arts, and a reservoir of traditional knowledge."
