how do i become a shaman in a western society?

Well ive read alot about shamanism and anamism and i really want to know how to become a shaman. I looked around the site for some other poeple who asked the same thing but they all got really dumb short answers that made no sense or wasnt really explained. I just want to know were i can start. Just for some extra details im an african american 13 year old with a little build on the muscles. Im very fit.
Just to say i am practicing buddhism right now and have been a buddhist for a long time and i understand the concept of it. The reason that i want to become a shaman is to gain knowledge from nature and the spirits. I do believe they are real. I also want to start myself on a quest to gain knowledge about every thing. I always have this image in my head of being a great spiritual leader of the people and knowing about all things. That includes the supernatural, science, magic, all nature, people, math, english, history of the world, and learn more about myself. This is the reason i want to be one because i want to be a great spritual leader and teacher of shamanism. Basically in want to be one really smart guy but my mind it set on the diffrent roles that shamans play and the way they help people.
