Wure'ertu: Evenki migrations in early times and their relationship with rivers

Abstract : In this essay, the Evenki writer Wure’ertu presents three legends that have been handed down until today among Evenki groups living in the People’s Republic of China. The two first legends were gathered among the Evenki reindeer herders and the Solon Evenki in 1956-1957 as part of the Chinese national ethnographic campaigns launched in the late 1950s. The third legend was recorded by Wure’ertu in 2002 among the Solon Evenki. These three legends propose valuable data on the Evenki’s origin and migratory movements along Northern Asia’s rivers throughout centuries. Wure’ertu also explores some theories developed by scholars of the PRC on the history of the Evenki.
