Ongon in Siberia
The Buryats in Siberia have faced oppression throughout history. Following decades of Soviet suppression, the resilient people have crafted a narrative where their ancestral spirits (Ongon) return as tragic spirits, vengeful over being abandoned during socialist rule. For the Buryats, these tragic spirits are supernatural links to their forgotten past, of erasure and misfortunes.
See through the eyes of Buryat shamans in this travel expedition, and understand how economics, politics and other factors influence the spirit world.
