Description

The shamans (or healers) formed a link with the dead and the living. They mingled in the world of the animals and that of the supernatural beings. With the Tlingit, they wore masks representing the spirits they invoked. Once in a trance, they imitated their sounds and behaviours. When not used in these rites, the masks were stored in chests reserved for ritual shamanistic objects.
