Shama Ibrahim, 71
Altit Village, Hunza Pakistan

Shama Ibrahim is one of the remaining Bitan (shaman) in the Hunza Valley of Northern Pakistan. At fifteen he was in the high pastures herding his goats when he heard voices. As he turned around he saw a group of spirits in a circle. He immediately fainted. When he regained consciousness it was dark and his goats were gone. Shaking with fear, he felt a power move him down the very steep slope of the mountain and back to his village. Today he is recognized as a very powerful healer. One item from a patient placed under his pillow will produce a dream in which he sees the patient’s problem and its solution.
