Shamanic Tales of Siberia

    During the dark time of cultural revolution in soviet Russia the shamanistic cultures were nearly being viped out. However, cultural ethnographic efforts in the first three decades of the 20th. century provides us with a rich picture of the once-living shamanic culture in siberia. G.V. Ksenofontov collected many tellings and myths from burjatic, tungusic and jakutic shamans and published them in Moskva in the year 1930. My own resource is a german translation. The stories are taken from this book and translated into english by myself. Here I present a selection from these collected tales. They will provide the interested practitioner with a rich picture of siberian shamanism.
