Photographer Swiatoslaw Wojtkowiak did an amazing tour of ayahuasca shamans of Ecuador and Colombia and poured the results into his blog.  Beyond the fantastic pictures the site is quite a resource, as it includes all names and contact numbers of each curandero.   Highly recommended.  He even spells ayahuasqueros correctly! (a personal pet peeve of mine).  Apparently there's more to come.  Follow him here to stay up to date

Wanting to be an Indian and Guilt Seeking Redemption

"What are the problems with these two traps [Wanting to be an Indian and Guilt Seeking Redemption]? First of all, this redemption we find is really a cheap grace. It makes us feel better but doesn’t transform the situation of Native peoples. The injustices keep happening. Secondly, by denying the spiritual and political autonomy of Indian people, the New Age “rainbow” people subvert whatever good intentions they may have about multi-cultural community. What gets created is multi-cultural white middle class dominance in yet another form. Thirdly, these options perpetuate the fantasy image of the Indian, and distort the real picture. They prevent us from seeing the real lives of Native people. They obscure and drown out their voices and expression of self." Rev. Myke Johnson, “Wanting to be Indian: When Spiritual Searching Turns into Cultural Theft”, page 6.
