Ailo Gaup, Sami shaman born in 1944, died of complications after surgery in Oslo, Norway, September 24, 2014, while being treated for cancer. Shamanic healing work was undertaken for him with his family’s permission, and a spokesperson said that he no longer had cancer when he died. Ailo had been a student of Michael Harner and played an important role in the restoration of Sami shamanism in Norway. He was a renowned poet, author, and a nephew of the famous Sami shaman, Mikkel Gaup. Just before Ailo became ill, he published Michael’s Cave and Cosmos in Norwegian. Those who participated in Foundation courses with him will fondly remember his laughter and humor.
