I upload this right after a request for uploading a video about Yukaghir. Well, I work mostly on Chukotko-Kamchatkan people, but Yukaghir are Uralic people in Eastern Siberia.

This video is about the reindeer people (Orochon or Oroqen, Koryak, Yukaghir, Nivkh or Gilyak) who inhabit the northern side of Amur River, Outer Manchuria.

"These photographs and information are from the excellent book by Ivar Lissner, translated into English by J. Maxwell Brownjohn called 'Man, God and Magic', published in 1961. In 1939, at the beginning of the Second World War, he wanted to enter the uncharted area of the Amur Bend, in Manchuria, at that time controlled by the Japanese." (from the original website)

Note: These information were true in the past. However, some of the cultural custom practices may not be practiced in the modern days (eg. Oroqen burial on tree stumps).
