I dont know what you may call them in your culture and language but in I they are called MHONDORO,(MHO-NDO-RO)(meaning the LION,which represents ancestral spirits),or Svikiro,meaning one who the accommodate the SPIRIT.
These hola man are di intermerdiateries to Mwari(the Higher Supreme Being).They are permenantly possessed by di Irits and are consulted usually by di whole village in times of calamity and they are usually known for rain making,healing and oracle revealing.
They live just like I an I Rastafari,they grow dread,eat Ital,smoke herb,live in the mountains with their families mostly in caves.
I an I want to know if these are the same Ites as Rastafari,after Iman reasoned with many Idrens who consulted elders about dreaming a snake(since they are sacred in Shona culture)and they said one who got dat dream is mostly likely to be having an Ancestral calling and must take action of it.
One man advised I to go to I own village to sight the elders and reason with them and I told him dat many elders now gwaan with Christianity and nuh tek our culture seriously any more.
The man seh since many in I village are into jesus ting,may be I man might be di chosen one for di Irit and this will mek I have to move frm urban livity to rural mountainous livity.
The other thing is,most spirit mediums,the Mhondoro/Svikiro in Shona culture are of the Shoko(Monkey)totem which is Iman totem also.
