Guides and Gurus: Namibia (2007)

Episode 8
Only available in United States

San and Himba people of Namibia have practiced healing for over 10,000 years. They have a vast arsenal of healing plants which is important since they do not have access to modern medicine. Everyone learns about these medicines. It is not a practice limited to a few select individuals. Rather, everyone needs to know these things so the knowledge is not lost. Come with us as the San and Himba tribes of Namibia share with us their complex healing rituals and take us on a tour of the medicinal plants that have been used to heal for endless generations.

I have been trying to access the video on my apple laptop and have not been able to. This is the second day of my trial subscription. I will have to cancel if I can't obtain access to the programming.
