Jan 22, Marissa rated it really liked it Shelves: A fascinating and critically informed ethnography of the Telengits, based on field research conducted in the Republic of Altai by the author in the s.

It examines the influence of many trends common to post-Socialist and post-Soviet contexts within and without Russia--such as the role of Houses of Culture, civil society organizations, nationalist movements, and the growth of tourism. At the same time, Halemba's major focus is upon mobility, ritual, and ways of knowing. Her examination of the landscape of Altai and its significance to its inhabitants engages deeply with other anthropological work on mobile pastoralism in Inner Asia, especially Caroline Humphrey's writings on Mongolia.

Complementing this approach is her examination of religion in Altai, which contrasts the efforts of nationalists and intellectuals to establish Buddhism as a source of unity and institutional authority with the flexible, debated, and ever-changing practices sustained by the Telengits themselves. While critical of the -ism attached to shamans and their practices, Halemba nonetheless examines the activities of shamans kam and other 'people who know' in great depth.
