The Body, Health, and Medicine

Eulodia Dagua, "Newborn Child Dies Like the (shishin) Snake His Father Killed."

 

This video illustrates how, in Quichua thinking, the human body is physically connected to the bodies of people and animals with who it is related.  In an interview with Tod Swanson Eulodia Dagua tells how her newborn son died with the same bodily movements as those of a dying snake killed by the child's father six days after the birth.
