The Michigan Daily-Saturday, May 10, 1980-Page 17
By JOYCE FRIEDEN
Scholars from as far away as Canada
and Louisiana came to Ann Arbor
yesterday to attend the First Michigan
Conference on South and Southeast
One hundred-twenty conference
participants and 29 lecturers met
during the morning and afternoon in the
Michigan League to hear the first four
in a series of eight panel discussions
concerning the region.
YESTERDAY'S activities included a
Gamelan (Indonesian orchestra)
performance, an Indian dance recital,
and a Vietnamese dinner held at the
First United Methodist Church.
The mornining's activities began
with a two-hour discussion on religion
and communal dynamics in South Asia.
Among the four speakers was Kendall
Folkert, professor of religion at Central
Michigan University, who discussed
various Southeast Asian ethnic groups
and their religious ties.
Another speaker, Sociology and
Anthropology Prof. George Somers of
Adrian College, discussed the role of
the headman, the priest, and the
shaman in village life.
SOMERS DESCRIBED the shaman's
task of driving away evil spirits from
the body by using a story concerning a
sick child. Three different shamans
attempted to cure the child, he said,
with sacrifices of chickens and white
doves to placate the evil spirits. The
child, who was suffering from
dehydration, was finally taken to a
local hospital, where he died.
"The villager's idea of good is the
absence of evil," Somers said, "and
their spirits can be either malevolent or
AP Photo benevolent." e added that some of the
villagers blamed the child's death on a
hospital nun who had prayed over him
parlia- before he died.
