Shaman and Spirit Protector I

Shamans could be of either sex among the aboriginal tribes of Siberia. However, to become a shaman one essential requirement was having a Spirit Protector of the opposite sex. The concept of a Spirit Protector can be compared to our notion of a guardian angel. The only difference is that it is a wider concept, it was possible to have animal Spirit Protectors as well. (See Spirit Protector II!)
