Siberia: At the Edge of the World

January 16, 2015

Before our Siberia exhibition closes on 1 March, there is still time to check it out in person, watch the trailer, or take part in our family and adult events.

Making a living in Kamchatka: Daily Life and the Spirit World of the Koryak

Sat 24 Jan, 2-3pm. Despite Stalin’s persecution of shamans in the 1930s, shamanic practices of communicating with animals and spirits are still alive and well today. Koryaks are mindful of their relationships with animals, spirits, and the land as they go about their everyday life. Rituals are special times for intense communication with these non-human beings, and everyone joins in. Find out more with Dr.Alexander D. King, University of Aberdeen.
