First Appearance

Ashes Ashes

Last Appearance

On Earth as in Hell

This unnamed shaman was a wise man and healer who lived in an Indian village on the edge of the forest, near the river, and who lead his tribe in a fight against both Puritans and Witches.

Early Life

Nothing is known of his life except that at one point was chosen by the Great Spirit to become a shaman.

Throughout the Salem series

Season One

Season Two


A wise man, the leader of his people and a leading expert on medicine, herbs, magic and shamanistic rituals. He welcomed John Alden to his people even though he was a soldier of the militia sent by the selectmen to slay the Indians.

Physical Appearance

An old man, but still showing a physique. His amber skin is brownish by the sun and is covered with wrinkles because the ripe age. He has long balck hair that often leads twisted into braids or tied with feathers and strings. During important ceremonies, such as the initiation of John Alden to Dark Mysteries, his skin is painted with the colors sacred to the Great Spirit. He's also wears a feather headdress, a symbol of his social status.




  • Since the shaman was played by two different actors, it's not known for sure if this is due to a recasting or if they were actually two different shamans. Since during the second season there was already a lot of confidence between the shaman and John Alden, it is very likely that a recasting for the same characters has been made.
