Shaman Feast In Modern Russia

Posted on February 10, 2011 by team


At first glance you may think you see some Indian during his traditional ritual on this picture. You'll be half right as this is indeed a ritual of worship, but it is performed by modern Russian shamans and their guests from abroad, who came to the shaman festival from Mongolia, Germany and the USA. Feel some magic!

    Some people believe in God, some in Santa, some in pot.

    As long as they’re not killing someone else because their way is “better”, to each his own.

    Siberian native people were fierce warriors who often engaged in acts to humiliate their enemies rather than simply kill them.

    Fourth photo from the bottom is a modern symbolic reenactment of such a ritual. The golden balls hanging from the ribbons are symbolic of how the warriors allowed their women to cut out the testicles of the enemy and dip them into a pot of boiling water to make tasty snacks similar to dumplings. Such a ritual carried powerful significance and warned enemies to stay away.

    Third photo from bottom demonstrates an enemy fighter’s reaction to such a fate.

    Thanks for great photos, and be careful traveling in Siberia!

    I would be so disappointed to travel so far and then see the great shamans wearing Western shoes and pants underneath their shaman dress. Damn that totally ruins it.
