ravenari: (art - bear shaman)
[personal profile] ravenari
Russian shamans unite to vote for a nationwide shaman chief for the first time.

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this myself. I think it could potentially be great, and hopefully stop the persecution that many Russian Indigenous still face, depending on where they live and practice...

On the other hand, trying to unite many diverse, and not always same-seeing religious paths under one leader can be potentially catastrophic when it comes to preserving cultural diversity. Globalisation has not always been the friend of Indigenous shamanism. And trying to get a leader to fairly represent very different subcultures may not, in the long run, be the friend of Indigenous shamanism either.

Still, there is always hope. Anything that stops the persecution they still face to this day is a good thing.
