Unofficial Evenki Home Page: This is the site of the "Evenki Society" which was founded in 1997 in Berlin. The society exists to promote language/culture preservation efforts among the Evenki, Even and Oroqen. There is much useful and mostly reliable information contained in the pages, including some articles on shamanism and reindeer herding. The site appears to be mostly maintained by Joachim Otto Habeck, who will be in Russia doing fieldwork until summer 1999. This is regrettable because the large number of "forthcoming" articles which are mentioned on the site will probably not be available until at least then.

UNESCO Red Book on Endangered Languages: Northeast Asia: Contains demographic and linguistic information about Tungusic languages, mostly provided by Finnish scholar Juna Janhunen

The Red Book of the Peoples of the Russian Empire: The Red Book, compiled in the early 1990's by a group of Estonian scholars, provides general information about the many minority groups which fall on the soil of the ex-Soviet Union. For each group, demographic, anthropological, linguistic, and historical data are provided. This is an excellent reference on Tungusic speaking groups including Evens, Evenks, Nanais, Negidals, Orochis, Oroks, Udeges, and Ulchis.

Database of the Centre for Russian Studies: The Centre for Russian Studies is part of the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs. The database contains general information about all the ethnic groups in Russia.
