From the Hunter to the Hunted: Shamanism as a Subaltern Narrative

Author(s)
Mallika A Nair
Abstract
The term shamanism comes from the Manchu-Tungus word šaman. The noun is formed from the verb ša- ‘to know’; thus, a shaman is literally “one who knows.” The shamans recorded in historical ethnographies have included women, men, and transgender individuals of every age from middle childhood onward. The present paper tries to codify the Shaministic practices as a mystical narrative and their far reaching implications as a subaltern ideology.
