Stone Shamanism is a Shin religion on Roshar during the Era of Solitude. It seems to have something to do with the concept of being Truthless. The followers of Stone Shamanism refer to outsiders as stonewalkers.
The followers of Stone Shamanism believe that stone is holy and it is profane to set foot on it. Mining is a sacrilege to them and only Soulcast metal can be used. This makes trading metal with them extremely profitable, though the trader needs to prove the metal is Soulcast. They also believe it is unholy to use gems filled with Stormlight as a light source or for ornamentation. However, the worst sin is committing murder.
Death & Afterlife
When people who follow Stone Shamanism die, their souls are "given to the stones". This includes those who are Truthless, provided they keep to their way of life, though they will be subject to eternal punishment and not absolved of their sins like other followers.
