The Bacas and the Priests: How Old Adversaries Came Together to Revive and Reinterpret Tradition

Abstract

In the Polish pastoralist tradition there have always been two seminal community events which bracketed the winter season. There was the autumn event of “Redyk Jesienny” when the sheep brought back from the summer alpine pastures were given back to their owners and there was also a spring “Redyk” also called “Mieszanie Owiec” which literally means the Mixing of Sheep. Historically, it was an important event in which the head shepherd, or the baca had to use his magical knowledge to ensure that the big herd made up of sheep from the individual owners would keep together as one and produce enough milk to make this summer venture profitable. To do that he used magic spells and performed rituals learned from his predecessors. The bacas' magical knowledge was frequently in opposition to the powers of the priests who viewed them with suspicion. Today, this spring event of “Mieszanie Owiec” is much changed. It is no longer a private affair of the baca and the sheep owners. Frequently, it is a public event, a tourist attraction, with the priests often taking centre stage. There is even a new, “invented” tradition of region wide “Mieszanie” at the sanctuary of Ludźmierz. There, a small herd of around 200 sheep is symbolically used to bless all the herds going up the mountain pastures for the season. The paper examines how these traditions changed from old ethnographic descriptions and how they are evolving in a modern economic and social reality.

Intercultural Education as an Imperative of Social Development

Abstract

The imperative need of a social coexistence among different groups of people is the implementation of the intercultural education. In these circumstances, school is the most important place and factor for pupils and students as future citizens to take the first knowledge-based on society, life and coexistence in a given country. On the other hand, all social-cultural school courses should be reviewed in accordance with western visions which accelerate the pace towards a future world without borders, despite different races and cultures. Thus, the content of such courses, such as history, geography, drawing, music and literature should occupy more important new notions and information about intercultural education and it's role on a social development. Therefore, it is important for the given society, that all the schools' directors should pay more attentions on entertainments about cultural activities among pupils and students as future citizens. The focus of this paper is the role and importance of intercultural education for the development of a social society.
