Today’s 360 VR Buzz: VR Film Follows The First Female Shaman Of The Yawanawá People

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

100-year-old Tata has experienced his fair share of difficulties throughout his time as Shaman of the Yawanawá people. Years of invasive missionaries and slavery by rubber trappers had nearly extinguished the Yawanawá culture, losing songs, art, and history in the process. Recognizing the diminishment of eons of ancient culture, Tata sought to secure the future of his people by reinforcing the roles of women within the community. He would start by selecting Hushahu as his apprentice and successor, making her the first female Shaman in Yawanawán history and introducing women to the Yawanawá spiritual ceremonies for the first time. The results have been extraordinary, with modern Yawanawá women now going on to become chiefs within their respective communities. After viewing the VR film Collisions and recognizing the “spiritual compatibility” of VR & AR, Tashka Yawanawa, chief of the Yawanawá people, reached out to the project’s director, Lynette Wallworth, to record a dying Tata’s last message, as well as witness the effects of his important work.
