Wade Davis – Searching for Haitian Zombies
World explorer Wade Davis will tell us how he discovered a Haitian poison used to make “zombie” thralls. He will discuss the potion’s key ingredient and how popular culture has twisted the origin of the zombie myth. In Hour 2, he takes us on his most recent journey to Columbia and his travels along the mighty Magdalena River.
Wade Davis is a Canadian-U.S.-Colombian cultural anthropologist, ethnobotanist, author, and photographer whose work has focused on worldwide indigenous cultures, especially in North America and South America, and particularly involving the traditional uses and beliefs associated with psychoactive plants. Davis came to prominence with his 1985 best-selling book The Serpent and the Rainbow about the zombies of Haiti. Davis is a professor of anthropology and the BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia.
