  1. A sort of priest in ancient Amerindian or Steppe cultures that would oversee certain aspects of the congregations – usually spirutal matters of various disorganized paganism, but often into medicine and political leadership as well depending on the society,

  2. Each continent has a slightly different version. The ones in Asia/Mongolia are different than the South or Central American ones, who are different than the Caribbean ones, who are different than the Australian ones, or the African ones or the Inuit ones or the Native American ones….etc. etc. etc.
    Which version were you interested in?
    The common thread is that the person who is the shaman uses spirit guides and totems, and is connected spiritually with the ‘other world’ AND he or she works for the community of people who are around him/her. It’s not an individual practicing anything for themselves, it’s someone who is there for the community.

  3. It’s an E’venk word, it’s in the dictionary, Look up Shamanism in Wikipedia, they exist all over the world and shamanism is probably the original spiritual tradition of humanity.
