Tibetan Bonpo - Cultural and Indigenous Survival 

Susan Clarke 
, Filmmaker and Registered Nurse is dedicated to awakening the peoples of the world through film, video, and storytelling so they can help facilitate the survival of Indigenous cultures. She has a relationship with the Tibetan Bonpo, the original pre-Buddhist culture of Tibet. The Tibetan Bonpo have a culture and religion (including healing systems) that date back over 18,000 years. Susan has already filmed over 28 hours of footage beginning in 1989 at the Main Bonpo Monastery & village in exile in Northern India during the Losar or New Years Mask Dances. She is working to produce a documentary titled, "Lama's Dream". 

Here is a website to give you a little greater understanding of the Tibetian Bonpo. 

The Tibetan Bonpo were driven from Tibet, their homeland, to India where they live in refugee villages. Susan is determined to return to India to film the current state of Bonpo survival, their progression since 1989, and the possible paths opening up to carry this ancient culture into the future. This would culminate in a documentary for broadcast and educational purposes and fulfill one of the requests made to Susan by the Lineage Holder, His Holiness 33rd sMenri Trizin, the spiritual head of Bon, the native religion of Tibet. 

There are 5 main Tibetan Lineages or Schools/Sects: four (4) Buddhist and one (1) Bonpo. So His Holiness 33rd sMenri Trizin, as the head of the Bon Sect, is just under His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, who is the Spiritual and Secular Head for all of the Tibetan people

His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama is the first Buddhist Dalai Lama to acknowledge the Bon, which is the original pre-Buddhist culture and religion of Tibet. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has encouraged Susan in fulfilling this dream. 

Susan has a promo video on this project extracted from the 28 hours of film and needs to raise monies to finish the project. 

Susan also worked for six years on the Navajo Nation as a School Nurse putting School and Community Health programs together from the ground up, as well as in Home Health with medically fragile children on the Navajo Nation.
