The word,'shaman',derives from the Tingus tribe from Siberia. It means healer and magician. For many centuries,Russian excursions to Siberia had taken place and during the nineteenth century,writers of Russia, used the word,'shaman', to describe the healers of the Siberian region. The term slowly spread from Russian literature and was used to describe other similar spiritual systems of a tribal nature,all around the world.
