Nenets and yukaguirs

Whether or yukaguirs the Nenets, I want to clarify that I am not talking about ethnic today, but native populations Gobi around – 2500 When these people have had to flee the valley of the Gobi, they are scattered in the vast northern They are simultaneously mixed with Inuit Their culture has advanced that it is their culture that prevailed, even if it is enriched plots animist cult Inuit
And this has continued since that time until today So that today very few remaining legends and original ethnic Nenets or yukaguirs current does little to resemble those of that time But also because it remains that their territories are kindly let them: the north north too inhospitable … Although … Today everything is called into question their territories are rich in oil, gas and other natural …

Nenets

The Nenets

Nenets means: man The Nenets, Samoyed people of Russia, living near the Arctic Circle Is their traditional reindeer herding and fishing They are nomads The house is traditional Nenets tchoum: a conical tent of reindeer skin, as Indian tepee
The population is estimated at about 41,302 people at the last census in 2002, for a current territory of about 600,000 square kilometers, an area larger than France Their original territory was five times larger: about 3,000,000 km ² … The social structure of society is clan-like Nenets

Nenets language

The Nenets language is a Uralic language group Samoyed, as enètse the selkup and nganassan There are two main dialects: the Nenets and Forest Nenets tundra of       During the Soviet era, the Nenets were Russified and a whole generation has not used his native language Despite the preponderance of Russian, the Nenets is again used It is taught again in schools and reindeer herders use Nenets languages ​​are spoken today by more than 27,000 people

History of the Nenets

Historians agree that 3000 years before Christ, the Nenets were detached from the population group of Finno-Ugric language to migrate northward and eastward They came from the Gobi Valley after crossing the mountains of the Altai Sayan Mountains and, as did the enetses the Sayan-ostiakses and ketses They are integrated ienisseïennes populations, Inuit of Altai

They left many traces, monuments and objects in their path, which date back to the Bronze Age, thus demonstrating their advanced culture Scientists say that the iron was unknown to them, but because they did not find any iron objects Iron objects have a shelf life of 2 to 3000 years … Should be exceptional conditions for conservation of the order of 5000 years
They excelled in the work of bronze, silver and gold, much more difficult and complicated to produce and work as iron Jewelery and objects found show a great artistic sense, and their fields covering large areas, irrigation systems had Many mounds, ovens and other archaeological evidence of dense occupation in southern Siberia at this time

Religion of the Nenets

The religion of the Nenets is a mixture of their original beliefs of extraterrestrial gods and animistic beliefs of the Inuit
Noumea, god of the sky and storms, reigns over the seven heavens of the tundra He saw farther than the moon, the sun, the stars Although we recognize the address of the celestial emperor édeniste Nga’s brother, Noumea, is the god of death and disease He reigns over the seven sub-soil of the earth Looks like the sacred tree Ygdrasil The universe is vertical All that is good comes from above, all that is bad comes from below ground
Their animist beliefs consider that any element of earth is animated by a spirit man must seek to establish harmonious relations with the surrounding elements, not to harm them and their willingness to reconcile them with offerings The earth is alive In spring, when the grass appears, the Nenets say that the earth is revived In the autumn, when the grass yellows, earth dies The Nenets are forbidden to plant anything in the ground for fear of disturbing the gods of the earth
Remarkable landscapes: hills, hillocks, rivers, lakes, seas, islands, especially if they have large rocks are sacred places All lakes and large islands are sacred Each of these places of worship has its legend
All religious and cultural heritage is seriously threatened by oil and gas, and many holy places have been destroyed

VK4934-18,%2019_shaman
Shamans

The shaman is highly respected in the Nenets as in yukaguirs He is the mediator between the spirit world and the earthly world If a man is ill, it is a spirit attacked To appease the shaman must contact the responsible attitude and convince them to abandon their evil actions In his bag, it retains its magical objects: tambourine, bells, mask, magic stones and especially the stick, wand of our legends
The shaman must not make himself a stick They make them for each other Stick with a length of 120 cm, is covered with snake skin or silk At the top of the stick, we set a metal figurine mind bolo mala as a bearded old man It is the spirit of the master shaman stick that shows the way Basically, we set a knife is fashioned iron or a bulge The stick symbolizes the horse or deer With the horse, the shaman went into the worlds below and deer in the worlds above
The shaman is the living memory of the history of the Nenets he transmits to his clan singing legends fireside

Nenets legends

There are many stories and legends Nenets, but unfortunately we have no texts to offer, making the transmission is orally
There are tales of animals, where all the characters are animals, tales of deities or spirits that affect human life, tales of giants, witches or other extraordinary characters, storytelling straddles the world of the dead and the living
Legends are historical narratives that have been or could have happened The legends explain the origins of things or people They are also warnings They tell the story of the clans

Sikhirtya
The Legend of Sikhirtias

This is a documentary film 1993 Russian Andrei Golovnev Sikhirtias evokes the legend of a population that date according to the archaeological remains found in the tundra of Siberia to the west, before installing the nomadic Nenets
Film Synopsis translated by Helen Fara:
“The Sikhirtias small legendary people are considered the predecessors of the tundra énètses They hunted wild reindeer, and were commercial whaling and walrus
The Sikhirtias live forever, but underground They belong to the world of the dead They only appear at night or in fog They wear metallic clothes and move on dogs or Mamontov, reindeer land They have white eyes, they are blind Sometimes they come to see the living, but only at night or in fog They leave in their wake metallic objects When the shaman calls the fire by his crackling, warned of their coming Then the shaman enters into a relationship with the realm of the dead and the spirit N’ga Sometimes people say they met and they talked about their
These are very similar to Sikhirtias Dropa, the little men legends of the white island in the Gobi Valley …

DESTINATION EARTH

Earth is the aim 6 , Exoduses and survivors

Part 5: The people of the Gobi

Chapter 2: Yukagirs

The exodus

Chiyou wars and Yi, lasted from – 2650 – 2350, about …

The Tocharian massacred villagers édenistes Gobi

As long conflict, this exodus of many generations

One by one, ethnicities covered by the ground war and hungry for the destruction of nuclear weapons and air had to leave this valley became a hell Gobi

Geographically, there were not many options for the leak: to the east, Tocharian, west édénistes other to the south, the Altai Mountains, it remains that the North: Siberia

Tell the order in which ethnic groups are parts occupy a new territory is not really known, so we will simply describe the movement of people from east to west

The Yukagirs

The Yukagirs, ethnicity édeniste Valley Gobi, went into exile in Yakutia, Sakha Republic today, is part of Siberia

There are about 4500 years, they occupied the eastern Siberian Yenisey River to the Kolyma River

They apparently well integrated with the Inuit people, the first inhabitants of this region, they have improved the lifestyle of nomadic seminomadic

The Inuit were nomadic hunters of wild reindeer

The Yukagirs brought them their technical mastery and reindeer herding

In winter, they settled in houses half-buried, covered with earth and snow

This new population has since undergone many new invasions, and the current populations of the region are from only a very small percentage of its first occupants

Language Yukagir

Their language is related to Finno-Ugric languages, at least what’s left …

Indeed, the Yukagirs as their language, are endangered

There would be a little less than 200 Yukagirs over 4 million km ² …

It is quite normal when you consider the mixtures more or less forced population as diverse since more than 4000 years

Finno-Ugric

The Finno-Ugric languages ​​are so called by modern linguists of the 18th and 19th century

It is common roots and languages ​​of different Indo-European languages, Altaic, Turkish, Semitic or other

These languages ​​mainly spoken in Finland and two sides of the Urals, are still in use today

Siberia

But what attracts the world in Siberia?

Until the 19th century, immigrants are mostly from being coerced, forced off their land by war

From the 20th century, immigrants came and forced labor by the Soviet government or misery, to exploit the immense potential mining and energy in this region

Siberia, an area of ​​13.1 million square kilometers, or about 24 times the size of France, has a population of 39 million or about 3 per km ²

It extends from the Urals in the west to the Pacific Ocean to the east, and the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Altai Mountains in southern

The climate is cold and continental, low relief is crossed by huge rivers

Siberia is rich in oil and natural gas

It represents 25% of world diamond production

There are also deposits of virtually all metals due to the lack of ice cover during the Quaternary: gold, silver, lead, molybdenum, zinc, etc …

Inuit mythology

Inuit mythology is animistic and shamanistic

It has neither gods nor cosmogony

It therefore relates to the earth, the elements, animals and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors

It is of course directly related to their harsh environment

Current Inuit have adapted Christianity to their traditional beliefs

The creation of the Inuit world

In the beginning, there was a man and a woman

The woman asked Kaila, spirit of heaven, to populate the earth

He sent a hole in the ice to fish

Women then left the hole, one by one, all the animals

Caribou was the last

Kaila said that the caribou was his gift, the best he can do as he would feed his people

Caribou multiplied and the son could hunt, eat her flesh, clothing and tents make his skin

The son of the woman always chose the big fat caribou

One day, he remained only the weak and sick whose Inuit would not

The woman then complained to Kaila, who sent on ice to dig a hole

She fished the wolf, sent by Amarok, spirit wolf, for he eats the weak and sick animals

Thus according to Inuit mythology, the caribou feeds the wolf, but the wolf that keeps the caribou healthy

The shaman

The shaman is the intermediary between man and nature spirits

He is the wise, counselor, healer and seer

To assert his will he wears ornaments ritual

It communicates with the spirit world by ceremonies and trances

The secret of his powers is protected to guarantee him his high status in the community

The shamans of Siberia

Siberian shamans are very powerful as they travel between worlds climbing in the world tree or flying

Siberian shamans have a cosmogonic mythology

Shamanism was born at the same time that the world

The first shaman was the son of the sky god

He would come to earth in the form of an eagle

This gift of shamanism it is too difficult to bear, he returned to évenque

This woman was then sent this gift to her husband Buryat

The cult of the sacred eagle is widespread among all Siberian shamans

Eagle feathers adorned the hats of traditional shamans of Tuva

On Olkhon Island, lives in the head of 13 inhabitants of heaven

There is the sacred mount Jima, peaking at 1274 meters, where shamans live in the northern leaders called the blond-headed eagle

Morgon-Kara

Morgon-Kara, Buryat shaman of the Baikal region, has the power to bring the dead back to life

The lord of the dead was very angry against men because they complained upstairs, the god of the sky, the death of one of their

The sky god had locked the soul of this man in a bottle

With its magical tambourine, Morgon-Kara went to the world of spirits and found the man’s soul trapped in the bottle

He then turned wasp stung and the sky god in front

The god of the sky was so surprised that he freed the soul trapped in a false move

The shaman could then bring man on earth

Siberian legends

Siberians are the people on the ground like in the middle of a series of three, five or seven worlds, stacked one above the other

Worlds above belong to the good gods and spirits and those below to bad gods and spirits

A shaft connects these worlds as the tree Yggdrasil

One of the legends of creation of the earth tells us that the gods and Chagan Shukuty Otshirvani descended from heaven and found the land covered by water

Otshirvani and Chagan-Shukuty a frog sitting on a turtle pushed repeatedly to the bottom, which dropped a little mud whenever the shell

When the gods have piled enough mud on the back of the turtle, it sank, leaving the earth to the surface of the water

Otshirvani also took the form of a giant bird that fought a great evil serpent called Losy

But to live on the earth, he had to destroy the sun and moons that have made the world too hot and too cold

The hero who will fight called the god of the sea, which melts the iron kettle to make iron arrows

The heroes used to draw on the sun and the moon

The hero could then follow a golden bird to the world tree

The bird changed after many forms, has become a woman, wanted to marry the hero

Another legend speaks of a great Siberian flood and a hero who saved his family

The creator god Ulgen told a man named Nama to build a boat

In the boat, Nama is accompanied by his wife and his three son, other people and many animals

The boat has all the saved from the flood and they could live on the land once it was dry Years later, when Nama was close to his death, his wife told him that if he had killed all animals and people he had saved in his boat, he would become king of the dead in the afterlife

The son of Nama argued that the killing was a sin, then Nama killed his wife and son took the righteous to heaven, where he became a star constellation

Siberian mythology

Siberian mythology speaks of a world where humans and animals and respect each other, where the animals had souls and could change shape

Mythologies of Siberia are derived from the beliefs and myths of a number of different peoples mixed with animist and shamanic bases Inuit

We find the tree Yggdrasil, the Norse legends, that is to say Atlanteans, probably transmitted by kelts, Tocharian allies in the wars of Gobi, and whose presence is attested by triskells found in this area

It is also possible that they were sent by the Vanir and Aesir when contacting people who migrated to northern Norway and have returned to Siberia

Gods and Chagan Shukuty Otshirvani are from the Japanese Kojiki, that is to say Atlantean

Transmission could be in the wars of the Gobi where the Atlanteans were allies of japan Tocharian or by subsequent Japanese invasion

The adaptation of the legends of Yi and the 10 suns clearly designates the enemy are the Atlanteans who attack with their suns

The Yukagirs are indeed a people édeniste Valley Gobi and war is well described as a nuclear first too hot, then too cold …

The legend of the flood and Noah, here called Nama, it confirms that it is a nation of origin édeniste

What is interesting in this story is the death of Noah who went to heaven, accompanied by his son to become a constellation: one must understand that they have been frozen for back into space

These are the same stories we content aborigines we describe the technology gods for their eyes

As soon as the stories of the Bible legends, compiled – 700 to + 358, we reach populations by unpolluted by Christianity, we obtain versions closer to reality gods: that is to say, consistent with Technology of the gods …

Part 5: The people of the Gobi

Chapter 1: The Valley of the Gobi

The Gobi Desert
The Gobi Desert is the largest desert in Asia (see Part 3, Chapters 4 and 5)
It is bounded by the Altai Mountains, the steppes of Mongolia, the Tibetan Plateau and the northern plain, along the Great Wall of China
The Gobi extends about 1600 km from southwest to northeast and 800 km from north to south, covering an area of ​​approximately 1.3 million square kilometers, more than 2 ½ times the size of France!
The Gobi Desert is growing by more than 10 000 km ² per year …

The average altitude of over 1000 m, causing scorching summers and freezing winters, a mean temperature difference of about 90 ° C between the two seasons
In the canyon Yollin Am, you can see blocks of ice in July

The amount of radioactivity in the Gobi Desert, according to Western technicians from the measure, is 50 times higher than normal, or 82 ms / year …

Valley of the Gobi
But it has not always been a desert …
Before accusing a radioactivity level of 82 ms / year, it was an immense fertile territory of nearly 1.3 million square kilometers, inhabited by people édenistes

Legends speak of the displaced population of an earthly paradise before being driven out by fighting saucers Yi, spreading terror and desolation, and burning of entire regions
These legends also tell the hail of fire to the villages suffered by many passages of dragons and giant crows from the belly of these saucers …

Before édenistes, the kingdom of heaven, take the measure of nuisance caused by the Atlanteans, the damage was considerable and have forced people to flee
Yet another exodus …

The wars of the Gobi
They are narrated in Chinese legend, Huangdi and Nu Ba-cons Chiyou, and wars of Yi, winner of 10 suns …
See Book I, Part 4, Chapters 9 and 15 …
It was these nuclear wars that transformed the vast fertile territory of nearly 1.3 million square kilometers in one of the largest desert of the earth …
The wars of the Gobi Valley took place at about – 2650 to – 2350 BC

Chiyou wanting to invade – 2650 the territory of Huangdi, the celestial emperor, it triggered a terrible war
The protagonists have used weapons technology as effective as destructive burned everything
The fertile valleys have become an arid desert
And it was not finished …

After the victory of Huangdi, a peace treaty was concluded, but quickly ignored by Atlantean
Towards – 2350, war resumed the Gobi …
The Atlanteans then pulled out the stops: the heavily armed spaceships in nuclear …

Huang Yi then handed a red bow and a quiver of ten white arrows
Yi took his bow and banda
The arrow went off like a shooting star
A violent explosion reverberated in the sky, the sun hit by the arrow Yi, turned into a fireball and fell
Each time a sun was touched, he fell in a black raven to 3 feet
He destroyed the nine suns and who terrorized the region

But this new nuclear war has wiped out permanently, and for thousands of years, the fertile valleys of the Gobi …

Legends of the wars of the Gobi
Legends of Chiyou and Yi are not only interesting in the details of these nuclear wars authorities, but also because they tell good history of this region at this time

Found in populations of Atlantis, the same legends, views across …
We also find, in the legends of displaced populations, the history of terror suffered during successive invasion of Atlantis

It seems well established that these legends have told so many facts that actually occurred about 4500 years ago …

The exodus
In all cases, mass exoduses of populations that occurred at that time are a reality!
We recover all these ethnic groups in new geographic territories, at that time
And this is the story of these ethnic groups, we will study in later chapters

Part 4: The Indo-European , Chapter 33: The Semites

Amarna letter, written in Akkadian cuneiform, from the royal archives of Pharaoh Amenhotep III …

DESTINATION EARTH

Book Two: The peoples

Part 4: The Indo-European

Chapter 33: The Semites

The Semites

The term Semite creates many and ardent polemicsIt does however mean that:Descendants of Shem, son of NoahNoah was 500 years when he had ShemNoah was 600 years old when the flood occurredShem is born around – 5000 BCFor over 7000 years, it has been about 300 generations …And much mixity …This means that virtually the whole earth is SemiticThe argument also applies to any ethnic group living in – 5000 …Ethnographically speaking Semitic does not say so …

Semitic languages

When we speak of Semitic languages, the definition is much clearer:The Semitic languages ​​are a group of languages ​​spoken in antiquity in the Middle East, the Middle East and North AfricaAs regards languages, the first concept to note is that a language is a living languageMan being particularly lazy, he will always go to the easierIn the fourth millennium BC, in the geographical area concerned, there were two kinds of writing: cuneiform and SemiticThe wedge is less convenient, the people of the region have gradually adopted the Semitic writingWe have seen in previous chapters, this region was the fourth to the first millennium BC, the region most commercially developedIt was therefore vital to have the same writing and same language, or at least toeasily understandThus, little by little, writing became common SemiticLanguages ​​have acquired many related terms, making them more understandableWe have the same problem today with words of various origins: English, German, Arabic, Russian, etc. …This is what makes a language is aliveBut this is not because the French and English speaking Franglais a long way from Shakespeare and Molière that the English have become French, or vice versa …

Hebrew and Jewish

We have demonstrated in the first part of this book are the Hattis who broke into Amorite and AramaicThe Aramaic of the tribe of Abraham became HebrewAbraham was the inventor of religion to his tribe and since the Hebrews became JewsThe term now refers to a Jewish person of Jewish religion, which must be added the geographical nationality of the person

The Arabs

Arabs are mostly Indo-Europeans, Sumerians, Egyptians and Canaanites, as we have shown in previous chaptersFew tribes can be of Hebrew origin: one derived from Aramaic and AmoriteHowever, we can add in reserves from the tribes of IshmaelBut across the Arab world, from Turkey to Pakistan, the Arabian Peninsula, Egypt to Morocco, and Sudan, this represents only a small percentage of human contribution in any mix this enormous areaAnyway, Ishmael, is neither Jewish nor Hebrew: it is EgyptianIshmael is the son of Abraham, Jewish, and Hagar, Egyptian princess enslaved by the HebrewsBut among Jews, Jewishness, or another source is transmitted only by the mother and the mother is Egyptian …And Hagar as a wife gives to his son Ishmael: an Egyptian!

Diversity and population displacement

It is worth recalling the pattern of population movements during this period:The Nubians of Sudan, édenistes, were integrated by the Egyptian, Atlantean, and mostly pushed eastward, that is to say, North Africa and CanaanThe Canaanites were pushed north by the Hebrews, édenistes, and became PhoenicianThe Hattis, Amorite and Aramaic, édenistes, were pushed southward and are integrated with populations Sumerian and Indo-European, Scythian and Aryan AtlanteanExcept for the Hebrew of Abraham who became Jews who left the region to Egypt and CanaanAll this mixing of populations over several millennia has created a mix undeniableSo now we can for these people, talk about nationalities, even for minority groups, but not ethnicity

The Semitic peoples

The Semites do not exist!The German philologist August Ludwig von Schlözer the late 19th century, coined the term Semitic, from Shem, son of Noah, to designate the peoples of the Middle East who speak similar languagesThis pejorative designation, following the Essay on the Inequality of Human Races in 1855 by Joseph Arthur de Gobineau, will be immediately approved by the Western world, because it will justify colonialism …

The Indo-European

It is this spirit that will influence and guide the archaeological and linguistic 19th and 20th century to crown the Kurgan Theory of Marija Gimbutas in 1956: it’s not that India is the origin of Indo -European, it is the Europeans who are the source of India!The history, legends, archeology and even linguistics, prove otherwise:They are the Scythian and Aryan, falsely called Indo-Europeans, who came from India to Europe of kelts

The earliest stories we learn that each checkpoint levied a tax of one quarter of goods … This explains the attempts to save the steps despite the dangers The sea route was cheaper, but far more dangerous There are only two crossing points and thus taxes only 2 points: Aden and Aqaba The sea route, Saudi side, is extremely dangerous for its coral and wreckers who lit lanterns to lure ships on the shoals to the plunder As soon as we moved away from the coast of Arabia, we had to deal with African pirates … Yep, nothing has changed today … A maritime expedition tells qu’arrivée in Aqaba, from Aden, she had lost three quarters of its ships from pirates, wreckers and the perils of the sea! A tax of one quarter of goods means a complex and centralized administration But also a police and army But also a communication network between cities But also an agriculture that can feed all these people … We know that Tocharian used wells, rivers, lakes and dams, to form an efficient irrigation system, efficient and reliable
