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. Manchus in Banner garrisons also worshiped the local deities of the Han people.
