Shamanism in Siberia
excerpts from Aboriginal Siberia
by M. A. CZAPLICKA
This is M.A. Czaplicka's review of the literature about Shamanism in Siberia, excerpted from a longer ethnographic work. Siberian Shamanism is important topic because the practice continued there up until historic times, and so there are reliable modern accounts. The details of the shamanistic journey appear to be largely consistent throughout this culture region. This extended description contains important source material on Shamanism.
