Manchu Shamanism is a religion of Manchu people in China. Manchu shamans believe that all the spirits they sacrifice to are the original clans' spirits, and they practice ancestor veneration. The shaman dances in a trance to cure the sick. Manchu Shamanism has declined, and many Manchus are now Buddhists. There is Confucian influence on Manchus.
