Video: Shipibo-Conibo Sacred Black Drink Dance
The Panoans of Peru and the Creeks of the United States are among the few indigenous American peoples in which men and women regularly dance together . . . often making physical contact. The Panoans also do the Stomp Dance, just like the Creeks. Note that the Shipibo and Conibo wear turbans and long shirts identical to that of the Seminole of Florida.
The Panoans and Creeks use exactly the same word for the Sacred Black Drink . . . spelled ase . . . pronounced Ä : shē . In the Creek languages, the Panoan word for chief, orata, became the Creek word for a leader of a small village or an appointed official.
In this dance, the women have prepared fresh ase as there men are getting ready to go to war against the Incas. Apparently, the Panoans were the only people that the Incas could not conquer. There was a separate civilization in eastern Peru, which built mounds and maintained more democratic traditions.
