A Shaman is someone who can connect with the world of spirits and gods, this allows him to do amazing things, like taking the skills and techniques of assimilating a spirit with him. They can ask for advice to the spirits, heal the sick and gather the ghosts of the dead in this world. Moreover, by contacting the dead, they can also speak with great historical figures.They are only unique to the Uzumaki Clan.
During the days of Madara and Hashirama, there were a group of Uzumaki clan memebers that can communicate with the dead. They used their skills to help and create many sealing jutsu that made the clan famous with one of them being Four Symbols Seal. It was due to this that the Uzumaki Clan was starting to be feared by other neighboring clans which ultimately led to their destruction. This didn't stop their existence from being erased. There were some who escaped the destruction of their home. They then went to live in the Hidden Leaf where their expertise was most needed. After Uzushiogakure was then re-built, most of the shaman moved back in order to help the new home thrive once more while others decided to stay and help Konha thrive. To this day, the two villages maintained peace.
