Sikkim - The Ancient Wisdom Of The Shamans Pt 1

The people of the Lepcha tribe live in Sikkim, the small Indian state high up in the Himalayas. The 78-square-mile area was presented to the Lepcha by Sikkim's former king about 50 years ago, so they could preserve their own culture and language. They have also preserved something else in their small reserve: their unique wisdom of medical plants and herbal medicine.
