The pajés, besides being healers and practicing different kinds of medicines, also could communicate with spirits, becoming prominent in their tribes due to such occult powers. Some may make comparisons with shamans, because of the similarities with the use of plants for medicinal purposes, and invocation of entities, but even so, no one can doubt the knowledge and strong magic that they carried and passed from generation to generation. Yandir, as well as any pajé, was respected by his tribe, and the power of his magic could impress anyone, even a man as wise as Oludará.
