Some became shamans because it was a family tradition, much like doctors tend to run in families. Some were forced to become shamans because of a need inrepparttar community. Sometimesrepparttar 122288 shamans and village elders watchedrepparttar 122289 children, searching for a distinguishing sign or omen; they looked forrepparttar 122290 troublemaker,repparttar 122291 curious one,repparttar 122292 adventurer,repparttar 122293 leader orrepparttar 122294 shy one. When they found what they felt wasrepparttar 122295 right personality, they often placed that child in training...even against their wishes, sincerepparttar 122296 needs ofrepparttar 122297 tribe were considered more important.

Today, there are still traditional shamans in every culture, but there are also modern shamans. There are people today who have reawakened an interest in this ancient profession and are in training.
