Shamanic Trekker brings to life the extraordinary journey to experience the Q’uero tribe of the High Andes and the sacred rituals and ceremonies of the indigenous shamans. The Q’uero are potato farmers, weavers and alpaca herders living in stone houses without electricity, running water and plumbing. These shamans are initiated every generation in the indigenous healing practices and ceremonies that provide wellness and longevity to the tribe.
Throughout the documentary a reverence for the simple yet powerful existence of the Q’uero is showcased. These shamans work with the energy of the mountains and the earth to bring powerful messages of healing and hope for the modern world. A modern world that is slowly, but surely, encroaching on the Q’uero way of life. With an eye to observing and blending into the culture, the production crew was very aware of the potential footprint they may leave on the indigenous peoples.
