Shamans were spiritual healers, medicine men who practiced witchcraft. Most shamans were believed to be dangerous because bad things happened to those who gave him/her issues. They were also able to see into the future, identify witches who were harming others and traveled to other villages for events or to battle with other shamans. Shamans were the only people in their village who were burried in coffins along with their belongings. They were burried far from their village and were never bothered out of fear and respect.
