Curanderismo: Spirituality and Healing in Oaxaca, Mexico by Sandra Hurlong, PhD
hurlong-20 "Ten Indians approached us wearing long white cotton robes which reached to their feet. They had long hair so matted with blood that it would be impossible to part or even comb unless it were cut. These Indians were priests...and they brought before us large containers of incense full of a resin which they called copal. With clay braziers full of burning embers they began to smudge us thoroughly with incense."
