The Ancestral Magic of one of the last Navajo Medicine Man (Chee Ramon)
Chee Ramon knows as much, possibly more, about Navajo medicine than any man alive and now, for the first time, he has agreed to bring his knowledge to a wider audience outside his Navajo homeland of Arizona and New Mexico. Following his visit, we recorded this video with his main / oldest student (Charles) to share about the magic we witnessed.
The reason Chee Ramon agreed to share this knowledge is that the old ways are rapidly dying. Today young people have to work in the white man's world and do not have the time or inclination to undergo the lengthy and arduous training a medicine man's apprentice requires. Fewer and fewer young people speak the Navajo language, and so the complicated concepts of Navajo medicine--and some are extremely complicated--cannot be passed on as there are no English words of equivalent meaning.
Chee's visit was intended to impart at least some traditional knowledge to the wider world, where it may still do some good, while there is still time to do so.
