Na'vi magick/occult practice?
« on: September 11, 2015, 05:41:23 pm »
Would the Na'vi ever practice any form of ritual magick or occult practice? Similar to voodoo or witchcraft?

Good question. I wonder what is the purpose of the swoa (intoxicating beverage). Otherwise I don't think we have information about this yet.

Well I can share some of the worlds reflected by the Director of "Toruk First flight ,, since There is no concept or expression for "Magic" or the use of Magic in the Ethos of the World of Avatar,,(Cameron has said that's  no no.) We cant use or represent "magic" in the Avatar universe.. our culture tends to relate any phenomenon that science can't explain as "Magic".. Avatar does reflect in some of its spiritual viewpoints,, Shamanic perceptions like vision quests or altered states of consciousness ,, but I would rather drought That the storytellers behind the Na'vi would go into examples representing the use of "Dark magic"

I think some kind of swoa is used during uniltaron, together with kali'weya. Must see uniltaron scene to check it.

I think that any swoa eas not used during uniltaron. I think that only kali'weya and eltungawng were used here.
However, must see uniltaron scene again too. For sure.

I used to be into it, and I used to do Tarot Card readings and stuff, too, but I walked away from it. It wasn't really filling my spiritual needs.

Avatar including its cut Dream hunt scene contains a number of core Native Cultural recognition source "reflections" the dream hunt and its source refelctions touch on the use of Ayahuasca  (which is also made from brewing of "two" components) its a potent hallucinogenic used by shaman in Central and South America and often "abused" sometimes with deadly results by people trying to lure tourists to pay for that experience.. David Suzuki's documentary on youtube sheds some interesting light,,
