In this room you will encounter exciting exhibitions which provide diverse insights into the cultural life and landscape of the Southern Highlands.
The current exhibit in the room is about the work of healers in Iringa Region. Between June 2011 and October 2013 Social Anthropologist Dr. Gundula Fischer conducted field research in the Iringa region, interviewing over 30 healers and observing their healing practices. Healers in Iringa are an important aspect of social life, and can be herbalists or diviners. Healers make a diagnosis of their patients condition and prescribe medicines, where as diviners combine divination with various therapies to invoke ancestors to assist in problems a person may be having. The exhibit is supplemented by photography from Sasja van Vechgel.
