What do you think about when you hear the word "shaman"?

- Advertisement -

I am doing an anthropology project on the subject, and most of my college educated friends have no idea what shamanism is. So I wonder, whats the general public perception? I am asking this in several sections, and I am not publishing this; I am just curious.
Just tell me what immediately pops into your head, no researching or Wikipedia! Images, thoughts, perceptions… thanks!
