Oracles and Spells


The Kinner people live in the Indian Himalayas on the border with Tibet and see themselves as communing constantly both with gods and malevolent spirits, whose mischief dictates their day-to-day existence.Most of their villages arelocated in the proximity of Mount Kailash, considered the ancestral home of Lord Shiva. Entering into their world means putting Western concepts on hold and making room for oracles, nature-worship, exorcism, animal sacrifice, and the casting of spells.
