Traditional Use of Amanita muscaria in North America part 1 of 2 papers)
    #4147787 - 05/07/05 07:30 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

This paper is an edited abstract from the multidisiplnary Conference, Hallucinogens, Shamanism, and native american Life, which was held in San Francisco's Japan Trade Center Theatre from Thursday, September 29 Through Sunday October 1, 1978.

Friday Mornings session was devoted to a special presentation by R. Gordon Wason, Reid Kaplan and Keewaydinoquay, an Ojibway herbalist and university trained ethnobotanist.

Here I am reproducing from the Journal of Psychedelic Drugs vol. 11(1-2), Jan-June, 1979, Wasson's introductory address in article form. Keewaydinoquay than sang an invocation to Miskwedo (Amanita muscaria) and was questioned by Wasson and Kaplan in a three-hour session. Extracts of Kee's presentation are also in a separate post titled, The Legend of Miskwedo., Following this piece.



And here are the four references to the above Wasson paper.

Kauffman, C.F. 1918. Thwe Agaricaceae of Michigan. Michigan Geological and Biological Survey, Publication 26, Biological SEries.
