Shaman Dance

Shaman Dance is performed by shaman (sorcerers or witches) praying to gods, sacrificing, dispelling evil and curing diseases. It was once popular among northern Chinese tribes, a result of primitive hunting, fishing and totem worshipping activities.

It is called tiao da shen by common people.
