Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0962956872, Hardcover)Traditional Medicine Among the Ngaju Dayak in Central Kalimantan: The 1935 Writings of a Former Ngaju Dayak Priest. Monograph Series, Volume No. Three
This monograph documents techniques of healing among the Ngaju Dayak of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. Although there are growing numbers of excellent scholarly contributions on Borneo's healers and on indigenous ideologies of illness (Bernstein 1997; Sutlive 1976; Tsing 1993; Winzeler 1995, 1993) our knowledge of these arenas of traditional life generally remain limited. To understand Dayak healing practices, and ethnographer must possess considerable linguistic compentency, an encylopedic knowledge of the region's flora, and an intimate familiarity with local systems of religious belief. It is therefore understandable why only a handful of studies documenting traditional healing practices in Borneo are available, and, too, why the present study is profoundly useful to scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplines.
