Mahtab Gazi, a gunin or tiger shaman, upon first landing at each new site for searching for honey, goes on land first and casts a spell on any tigers in the area so that they can not harm the honey hunteres. Then he puts a spell on some little leaf stalks that he breaks off, and gives one to each of us for protection from tigers, Sundarbans, Khulna Province, Bangladesh, April 2006
