Photograph: Summer nomad camp.
11,7 x 17
The photo shows the conical chums of a summer camp; a herd of deer is grazing nearby. In summer, the Evenki assembled at a common encampment including several related families, and pastured deer together. The conical chum was the basic type of dwelling place. The taiga Evenki usually cut down poles for the frame on the encampment site, only carrying covers (fur, leather, or birch bark) during migrating. In the tundra and forest tundra where wood is scarce, they carried the dwelling place complete with the poles. Abstract by M.V. Fedorova
