This visually stunning exploration of female shamans in archaeology overthrows the presumption that archaic shamanism was a masculine preserve. Director Max Dashu retrieves archaeological images from obscurity to reveal an unimaginably rich female past. Women do ceremony in rock art of the Sahara, southern Africa, Azerbaijan, Spain, and Baja California. They dance with tigers on Indus seals, with serpents on Iranian ones, and in ecstatic ceremonies on Aztec codices, Chinese bronzes, and Cretan seals. Female shape-shifters manifest walrus tusks in Nunavut and horns in Libya; ceramic sculptures in Ecuador, Peru, Nicaragua, show them becoming snakes, owls, deer. The two disc documentary includes chapters on invocation, sacred dance, drums, entheogens, shamanic flight; serpents, animal spirits, and goddesses with shamanic aspects; ritual staffs, rattles, fans and mirrors. Ancient representations of divination, laying-on of hands, staff dancers, regalia, deified shamans, paleolithic shamans-- all augmented by an evocative musical underscore.
