A15: The Yanomami, Your Choice: Answer one of these questions in one paragraph. Use  examples from the lesson, and/or reading, and/or video. A: What causes Yanomami illness, and how is it cured? B: How do the Yanomami engage in warfare between villages, but within the tribe?  C: Review the Lesson and the “A Man Called Bee” video. How did this week’s content cover  Yanomami infrastructure, social structure, and superstructure? Provide an example for each  category. Option A: Yanomamo illness is most likely caused by normal everyday illnesses that human  beings get. Sometimes foreigners will bring disease with them that makes the people sick. But in  the beliefs of the Yanomamo, it is a very different story. Many villages within the tribe conflict  with one another which brings about distrust and anger towards one another. The Yanomamo  believe that illness is caused by soul consuming spirits called Hekura. Usually this happens due  to someone from another village summoning this spirit in order to hurt another person.  It is  usually cured by a Shaman who has access to the Hekura. The Shaman will use hallucinogens in  order to access the spirit and use his own powerful Hekura to counterattack. Shamanism is only  practiced by men and can be practiced by any man who wishes to undertake the process of  becoming a Shaman. These novice Shaman are taught by more experienced ones in the way of  luring the Hekura into a person’s chest. Shamans must remain celibate if they are to be  successful in luring the Hekura.  References Peters­Golden, Holly ( 2012)   The Yanomami: Challenges in the Rainforest    .    Culture Sketches,   6t    edition. Pp 269­287. New York: McGraw­Hill
