Shamans and Apprentices: Keeping traditional knowledge alive in the Amazon.
For five tribes of the Colombian Amazon, ACT provides support for 96 traditional healers and their apprentices, allowing them to focus on the restoration of ancestral medicinal practices in their communities. In southern Suriname, ACT’s flagship “Shamans and Apprentices” program provides stipends and structured educational environments for younger tribal members to learn the ancestral medicinal practices of elder shamans.
