Grandmother Aama Bombo

Grandmother Aama Bombo by

Grandmother Aama was born into the Tamang tradition – a tradition originating in Tibet and comprising the largest ethnic group in Nepal – which did not allow women to become shamans.
From the age of 5 onwards, Aama wanted to become a healer but was prevented in every way by her father who forbad her to develop her gifts. When she was sixteen, Aama moved to Katmandu where she married a man who already had two wives. They all lived harmoniously in one household. Aama’s father died at the age of 80.
