You're right. You cannot cross in front of a shaman when they're doing their ritual kind of stuff. My mom is a shaman and she stresses this ALL the time to us.Oh! when shaman do this kind of things, no one can cross in front of him and that bigger boy who came to wipe the sweat away from the baby shaman just walked right through him across -- UA NEEG takes longer than just 10 minutes and this one is short -- under 6 minutes? weird! Hard to believe in my book of belief.
