Question[edit]

"in 1979, 75.2 % of the Evenk were fluent in Russian": does this refer only to Evenki in the then-Soviet Union, or to the total population? The article hints that they are in both Russia and China, but gives only a vague clue to how the numbers in the two countries divide. -- Jmabel 02:39, 10 Feb 2004 (UTC)

"related groups" info removed from infobox[edit]

For dedicated editors of this page: The "Related Groups" info was removed from all {{Infobox Ethnic group}} infoboxes. Comments may be left on the Ethnic groups talk page. Ling.Nut 23:08, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Related to Native Americans?[edit]

One article says that the X haploptype has been found in some present-day Evenks as well as in some Native Americans. Some aspects of the culture of the Evenks -- birch bark boats, traditional dwelling places -- look strikingly similar to those of native tribes in North America. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 18:56, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

“Predominantly † Orthodox Christianity”?![edit]

What point of view did this article advertise? I'm living in China, and among the 30 thousands Evenks in China Shamanism is the predominant belief, but in this article it says "Russianized Orthodox" is the predominant belief?! I placed a NPOV template to this article. ––虞海 (Yú Hǎi) 15:28, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this isn't really an NPOV issue per se. The Soviet sources (on which the article was built), naturally refer to the Evenks as a minority population of the USSR; Chinese sources known the Evenks as a shamanastic nomad tribe from the north. Until we can locate a non-Soviet, non-Chinese source, we're to some degree left speculating on the total number and total % breakdown of religious customs. -Aerolit (talk) 08:39, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Qing dynasty Aisin Gioro Y chromosome DNA found in Evenks[edit]

Aisin Gioro Y chomosome DNA was found in "Xibe, Outer Mongolians, Inner Mongolians, Ewenki, Oroqen, Manchu, and Hezhe" males and number around 1 million people. Their ancestor was Nurhaci's grandfather Giocangga, whose descendants made up the Qing dynasty nobility. But the Y chromosome was not found in the general Han Chinese population.

The Y chromosome cluster is specifically C3c, part of the General Haplogroup C-M217, which Genghis Khan's lineage is a part of, although the Manchu Aisin Gioro Y chromosome is part of a different cluster than Genghis Khan's

The reason it spread among these specific minority groups, but not among the Han Chinese population, is because the Qing Manchu nobility was concentrated specifically in the ethnically Manchu Eight Banners and not in the Mongolian and Han Eight Banners, and the specific ethnic groups which made up the Manchu Eight banners were "Manchu, Mongolian, Daur, Oroqen, Ewenki, Xibe".
