Antonio Manquid Jiménez Tafur


** Shaman and Hunter **

Antonio was the chief of San Juan for many years, but recently stepped down to let his brother take over the position (but Antonio still calls the shots at San Juan).  Antonio is undisputedly the best Shaman on the Gálvez River.  He is also an expert hunter and an engaging storyteller.  Antonio will be joining us at Primavera for the November training session, and has offered to host the next advanced training session at San Juan.  Unlike most Matses elders, Antonio speaks Spanish.  He is always eager to make friends with visitors from distant countries.
