“I think shamanism is so relevant today. It is that unbreakable part of our civilisation. The world is being globalised. I think that nevertheless, these ancient religions will remain in our world, serving as knowledge, information, and our historical consciousness.

“We would go to UNESCO and make an application for Siberian shamanism to be recognized as the sixth official religion of the world. You have Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Catholicism… Of course Russia has Catholicism, but it's mainly for the Europeans. Shamanism should be the sixth. If we are acknowledged as a religion, we'll be strong and independent, we'll be proud and respected. That's what my ancestors strived for.”
The Supreme Shaman of Russian Religious shamanic association of Adyg-Eeren (Bear-Spirit)
