Tuva

There are differences in the lengths of the fringe and where on the shaman the fringe is located. In the rock art, the fringe was usually long single strands attached to different parts of the shaman’s body. The symbolism of the fringe can be interpreted in several ways. One example is, “The fringe on a shaman’s coat is an important element, which marks his or her ornithomorphic nature (i.e. the ability to transform into a bird or to gain its abilities such as the capacity for flight) ” (Devlet 44). The concept of fringe being correlated with flying was mainly used in rock art in the Altai (Altai Mountains), Tuva, and Mongolian regions. Despite the specific US settings, ''Chill Out'' is multi-ethnic, its journey taking in pastoral shepherds, Russian broadcasts, Tuvan throat singers ("Dream Time in Lake Jackson"), exotic birds, and an African-sounding original female vocal from The JAMs' ''1987 (What the Fuck Is Going On?)'' that later became The KLF's "Justified and Ancient". *"Pings" from Pink Floyd's "Echoes (Echoes (1971 song))" on the album ''Meddle''. *Tuvan (Mongolian) throat singing, thought to be from ''Tuva — voices from the centre of Asia'' on Smithsonian Folkways Records or from the soundtrack to the BBC TV program ''The Mongolians''. *"Deep, bassy, glooping noises" possibly from Brian Eno's ''Ambient 4: On Land'' album.-- The '''endless knot''' or '''eternal knot''' ( wikipedia:Tuva commons:Category:Tuva

Astuvansalmi rock paintings While shamanism had a strong tradition in Europe before the rise of monotheism, shamanism remains a traditional, organized religion in northern Eurasia, including Mari-El and Udmurtia, two semi-autonomous provinces of Russia with large minority populations. Shamanism in Scandinavia may be represented in rock art dating to the Neolithic era Bolin 2000: 157 and was practiced throughout the Iron Age by the various Teutonic (Germanic peoples) tribes and the Baltic-Finnic peoples. A. Asbjorn Jon, Shamanism and the Image of the Teutonic Deity, Óðinn People which used to live in Siberia, have wandered to their present locations since then. For example, many Uralic peoples live now outside Siberia, however the original location of the Proto-Uralic (Proto-Uralic language) peoples (and its extent) is debated. Combined phytogeographical (Phytogeography) and linguistic considerations (distribution of various tree species and the presence of their names in various Uralic languages) suggest that this area was north of Central Ural Mountains and on lower and middle parts of Ob River. Hajdú 1975:35 The ancestors of Hungarian people or Magyars have wandered from their ancestral proto-Uralic area to the Pannonian Basin. Shamanism played an important role in Turko-Mongol mythology (Mythology of the Turkic and Mongolian peoples). Tengriism, the major belief among Xiongnu or Mongol and Turkic peoples, Magyars and Bulgars in ancient times incorporates elements of shamanism. Shamanism is no more a living practice among Hungarians, but remnants have been reserved as fragments of folklore, in folktales, customs.

Some of them did assimilate among Chuvash (Chuvash people) and Tatars with Sunni Muslim self-identification.
