Where the Orenda is at its Fullest: Perspectives on the Iroquois Shaman 

Associate Lecturer Campbell Copland will investigate the beliefs and practices of the Iroquois Shaman, an oft obscured and still mysterious figure in the annals of archeological and anthropological research.  Known more for their high-level politics and diplomacy skills, the Iroquois were also a magically potent people, with a vast yet intricate cosmology and system of beliefs all their own, and it was through the shaman that these aspects of their culture were made functional.  Copland, an adjunct professor and writing coach for the REACH program, will examine the preparatory rites of the False Face Society, the initiatory and healing functions of the sweat lodge, the dreamways traveled by the Iroquois shaman, how they utilize the cosmic war between Orenda and Otgon as their energy source, and much more.
