Shaman Khorolkan of the Kambaghir tribe of the Evenk, Siberia, ca. first quarter of the nineteenth century.

Shaman Khorolkan of the Kambaghir tribe of the Evenk, Siberia, ca. first quarter of the nineteenth century.

The shamans of tribes, such as Nanai and Udeghe, didn't often wear real shaman costumes during their ceremonies, but they would use the characteristic big, flat drums.    The shaman would beat the drum, in a monotonous rhythm, and sing long songs, to invite the spirits.    In some tribes, the shamans would improvise words and melodies, in others they would mainly sing old  familiar songs.    Invited by the songs, the spirits would gather around the shaman.

A Teleut Shaman and her Drum, ca. 1930s. The oval drum is divided into the Upper and Lower World. A wavy line separates the worlds. In the Upper World are the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, also horses, riders, birds, and trees. In the Lower World are a man, a fish, and a turtle. These figures, taken together, tell the shaman's story.
