    Hi Lucy!
    I think your photos of the inuit shaman is amazing and it would be really useful for my dissertation. Do you think I could be able to include it? Obviously I will attribute it to you and it will be used for purely academic purposes. Could you let me know either way as soon as you can as my dissertation’s due in less than a week?
    Thank you!

    Hi Catriona,

    The picture isn’t mine I’m afraid, clicking on the picture did link to the page where I found it but the website has changed but I’ve relinked it now. Here it is again: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/99615189/?sid=5fb2762b6044e1a29213498855f963bc there should be information about using it on there. What’s your dissertation on? I’m intrigued!

    Thank you very much Lucy that was really helpful! Sorry it took me so long to reply back! My dissertation was on the shaman as a figure in many cultures that often uses music to help their community – looking at the healing effects of music, at the combination of music and healing in the community, and who the shaman is. Then I go into looking at various examples from different places around the world (Siberia, North America, South America, Southeast Asia, Africa and Europe). In North America I’m looking at a branch of the Sioux Native Americans and at the Inuit, which is where I used this picture (and it looked mighty fine there if I do say so myself!). If you want to know anything else about it let me know, I’d be more than happy to help out if I can!
