9781896445380: Katanga Evenkis in the 20th Century and the Ordering of their Life-World (Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series)

This work documents the lives of a group of hunters and reindeer herders living at the headwaters of the Lower Tunguska River at the end of the 20th century. Katanga Evenkis are best described by the flexible and creative way they use the land around them, and continue to exercise a strong presence on their lands, despite severe pressure by Soviet-era policies and even more devastating dislocations by industrial development and privatisation. According to Sirina, Katanga Evenkis at the end of the 20th century are best characterized not by what they have lost but instead by the way they continue to make a home for themselves in the taiga, using a variety of adaptive strategies and intuitions that reflect what she calls the 'outlook of a mobile people.'

Extensively illustrated with contemporary and archival photographs, detailed diagrams, and original artistic renderings, this work documents the history and present lives of a group of Evenki hunters and reindeer herders living at the headwaters of the Lower Tunguska River in Eastern Siberia.

They have exercised a strong presence in their environment despite sever pressure by Soviet-era ethnic and industrial development policies, and by recent economic privatization. The author further argue that today Katanga Evenkis continue to 'make a home for themselves in the taiga' using a variety of adaptive strategies an intuitions in a way that reflects what she calls the 'outlook of a mobile people.' Based on Sirina's extensive fieldwork, this book includes numerous first-person accounts as well as a multi-season hunter's diary, and is also supported by an excellent command of the published and archival material on the region.
