Tsáchila Cleansing Ceremony [03:27]
Several University of Wisconsin-Whitewater student Optimist Club members traveled to Ecuador to participate in a number of service learning projects. Part of the experience was, of course, to learn something of the local cultures. A highlight was the visit to an indigenous Tsáchila village in Ecuador's northern coastal rainforest. The Tsáchilas are noted for their unique hairstyle fashioned by mixing oils with the ground seeds of the Achiote plant. The group, according to various sources on the Web, numbers about 2000--but the local shaman says that there are only about 700 native speakers of the Tsáchila language. The spiritual cleansing of individuals by the shaman is a key part of the culture, and we had the opportunity to participate in a cleansing ceremony. The video shows key elements of the ceremonial cleansing process.

Galapagos Islands - December, 2011 [48:57]
A slideshow of moving photographs and video clips overlayed with an assortment of music. This video is shows some selected bits and pieces of my trip to the Galapagos Islands. The video is about 50 minutes long, so set aside about an hour in order to watch the whole thing. First, set the desired quality (up to1080p HD), let it load, grab some popcorn, sit down, and enjoy. :)
