Uanindisu Lourenco Kithaulhu tells the story of a man visited by a spirit who told him which plants to use to treat his sick child. Other villagers could not see him. The spirit returned later to help the man heal his sick wife.
Lourenco did not know that he would become a shaman; spirits appear to him that are invisible to others. Hear how non-shaman community members help the healing process. He supports using white people's medicine if traditional rituals fail.
