I'm reading some research documents about the Mansi people living near the Ural mountains in Siberia. And after listening to the latest Joe Rogan podcast with Graham, something catched my eye. According to the study, the Mansi people had (have?) a sacred religious admiration towards the birch tree. And Amanita muscaria is known to have a symbiosis with birch trees. The study doesn't mention the mushroom but for me it's highly suspicious that the Mansi shamans used amanita in their rituals. If anyone has more information regarding this, I'd be glad to read it! I'll dig deeper into this research to see what else I can find.
