Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter focuses on the spirit possession of Tooy in 2000 and 2006. It explains that Tooy would slip into possession so gently that it was only detectable by the way he addressed his sister-in-law Sally and his assistant Kaluse. This chapter also shares the author's observation that Tooy's god, Dunuyangi, displayed special courtesies to the author. It also provides a transcript of the author's conversation with Tooy when he was released from jail in 2004.
