Published Description

DIVINERS AND HEALERS: The diviner and the healer are separate roles, though one individual may fill both in some communities. The diviner is consulted to find the cause, and sometimes the cure, for an individual's problems, whether ilness, infertility, concern for the future of a new child, or questions about dreams which may portend some unknown future. (4,5) Amulets in the form of bracelets and jewelry are sometimes given to ward off illness. 69.2.3, 69.13.1
