Now, having such dreams is indeed normal, and there could be various rather ordinary reasons for such dreams. A Culture-bound syndrome is, by definition, occurring only within a particular culture with a particular set of beliefs. By calling it intwaso, do you mean you think this is a sort of sickness - notification that you should become involved in traditional healing, and perhaps train and seek initiation in that field ? I know that rituals involving rivers and offerings made there can be significant.
I think we have some articles on cultural disorders, including intaso, elsewhere in H24 - do a search within the site.
