There are six tribes that make up the Apache:
Origin[ edit ] The Evenks or Ewenki are sometimes conjectured to be connected to the Shiwei people who inhabited the Greater Khingan Range in the 5th to 9th centuries, although the native land of the majority of Evenki people is in the vast regions of Siberia between Lake Baikal and the Amur River.
The Ewenki language forms the northern branch of the Manchu-Tungusic language group and is closely related to Even and Negidal in Siberia. By the Evenks or Ewenki of the Lena and Yenisey river valleys were successful reindeer herders.
By contrast the Solons ancestors of the Evenkis in China and the Khamnigans Ewenkis of Transbaikalia had picked up horse breeding and the Mongolian deel from the Mongols. The Solons nomadized along the Amur River.
They were closely related to the Daur people. To the west the Khamnigan were another group of horse-breeding Evenks in the Transbaikalia area.
Also in the Amur valley a body of Siberian Evenki-speaking people were called Orochen by the Manchus. Historical distribution[ edit ] The ancestors of the south-eastern Evenks have most likely been in the Baikal region of Southern Siberia near the modern-day Mongolian border since the Neolithic era.
Considering the north-western Evenks, "The origin of the Evenks is the result of complex processes, different in time, involving the mixing of different ancient aboriginal tribes from the north of Siberia with tribes related in language to the Turks and Mongols.
The language of these tribes took precedence over the languages of the aboriginal population" Vasilevich, Vasilevich is meaning the Tungusic languages. And the aborigianals are the Kets in Evenkia and Yukagirs in Yakutia.
Elements of more modern Evenk culture, including conical tent dwellings, bone fish-lures, and birch-bark boats, were all present in sites that are believed to be Neolithic.
Contact with Russians[ edit ] In the 17th century, the Russian empire made contact with the Evenks. The Cossacks exploited the Evenk clan hierarchy and took hostages from the highest members in order to ensure payment of the tax.
Although there was some rebellion against local officials, the Evenks generally recognized the need for peaceful cultural relations with the Russians Vasilevich, Contact with the Russians and constant demand for fur taxes pushed the Evenks east all the way to Sakhalin island, where some still live today Cassells.
In the 19th century some groups migrated south and east into Mongolia and Manchuria Vasilevich, Today there are still Evenk populations in Sakhalin, Mongolia, and Manchuria Ethnologueand to a lesser extent, their traditional Baikal region Janhunen.
Traditional life[ edit ] Evenks in Traditionally they were a mixture of pastoralists and hunter-gatherers—they relied on their domesticated reindeer for milk and transport and hunted other large game for meat Vasilevich, The Evenks lived mostly in areas of what is called a taiga, or boreal forest.
They lived in conical tents made from birch bark or reindeer skin tied to birch poles. When they moved camp, the Evenks would leave these frameworks and carry only the more portable coverings.
During winter, the hunting season, most camps consisted of one or two tents while the spring encampments had up to 10 households Vasilevich, The Evenks used a saddle unique to their culture which is placed on the shoulders of the reindeer so as to lessen the strain on the animal, and used not stirrups but a stick to balance Evenks did not develop reindeer sledges until comparatively recent times A tipi (also teepee) is a cone-shaped tent, traditionally made of animal skins upon wooden poles.
Modern tipis usually have a canvas covering.  A tipi is distinguished from other conical tents by the smoke flaps at the top of the structure. Without this hierarchy of Mother Energy the people become lost.
