Glenn Shepard Jr

Researcher in Indigenous Ethnology, Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi, Belém

I am an ethnobotanist, medical anthropologist and film maker now working at the Goeldi Museum in Brazil. I have written on topics ranging from shamanism to human ecology to indigenous modernity. I have made several films including the Emmy-Award-winning “Spirits of the Rainforest.” I am currently working on a book entitled "Sorcery and the Senses."
