Dakota Wintis surely doing something out of the box and eye-opening. Despite facing the grey coldness of Detroit poverty, it has not been easy to go to the furthest corners of the world and hope everything to be sorted. But he is always ready and prepared for all the adversities and hurdles. Though he is still in his 20s, he has dedicated the majority of his adult life exploring the taboo and hidden world of unique traditions, rituals and religious practices. “I have found having your life on display is the most fun and worst adventure simultaneously.”, adds Dakota.
Over the years, Dakota Wint has travelled to many places around the world and gained various experiences. While Dakota spent a year studying the different sects of Yoga in India. He ended up meeting a group of human-eating-cannibals, in the holy city of Varanasi, called ‘The Aghori’. He excavates that The Aghoris does post-mortem rituals and use dead bodies in their spiritual practices to obtain earthly powers and spiritual enlightenment. Most Hindus consider this group to be terrifying and avoidable at all costs. He even made a short documentary released on YouTube in June 2021 called “Holy Men of The Dead” showing his adventure meeting and learning about them which is even available on my channel ‘Dakota of Earth’ along with everything else mentioned below. Amongst all the experiences he has also spent 6 months living amongst an Amazonian tribe called the Shipibo. The Shipibo are a visionary shamanic and ritualistic group of people living in the remote jungles in a few different areas like Iquitos or Pulculpa.
Dakota Wint has discovered there is more to learn about this world, especially spiritually, as a result of his interactions with many tribes and his participation in their rituals. He’s also delighted to be able to share the experiences of these native groups with the broader audience. In case you wish to know more about these stories, follow Dakota Wint on:
