Are you wondering about digital site recording but don't think that EVERYTHING can be done on an iPad? Well, join the crowd. It's a common misconception.

What we'll be using:

  • Apple Pencil

  • Graphic App for iPad

What you'll need:

  • Nothing, if you just want to learn and be awesome!

  • An iOS device

A stylus or the Apple Pencil is NOT NECESSARY - it does make things a little easier, though.

What if I have an Android device? NO PROBLEM. Graphic doesn't work on Android, but, these techniques will.

What if I'm using another APP? NO PROBLEM! These techniques will work on just about any app.

Celestial Thunder: Weather Shamanism and Ghost Dance Theology in Native California and the Great Basin

This is an ONLINE Webinar from Team Black and taught by Dr. Alan Garfinkel!

tmp1013_thumb.jpg

ALL TIMES ARE PACIFIC DATE TIME (GMT-7)

This presentation twins with an hour-long, open-ended question and answer period.  The hour long slide show and talk provides an extensive and intensive review of the subject of rain shamanism in the Far West throughout California and the Great Basin. The discussion includes a review of a unique weather shaman’s bundle and also first-hand accounts of Native practices and the theology of weather shamanism. Extensive references to archaeological data (rock drawings and paintings, charmstones, crystals, shell ornaments, and other elements of Native material culture) are included and amplify the discussion.  

The prominent revitalistic movements of the 1870 and 1890 Ghost Dance Religion have an important element of rain shamanism integrated into themes of ancestor resurrection and world renewal.  Included in the presentation are new discoveries regarding Ghost Dance rock paintings in eastern California and the Great Basin.

The presentation highlights working hypotheses that weather shamans ritually create various elements of weather through homeopathic and sympathetic magic directed at creating sacred wind, clouds, rain, and thunder.
