The girl picked up the pot meat and went out. She did not know which way to go or where to find the tent. She stood, pondering, and then started off at random, determined to do as Kotura wished. Suddenly a little bird appeared from nowhere, the very same bird that she had seen up on top of the hill. It wheeled and hovered overhead, bidding the girl to follow it, which she did. Then she saw smoke rising from the snow. She came closer, stirred the snow with her foot and saw a door. An old gray-haired woman looked out and asked: "Who are you? What did you come for?" "I have brought you some meat. Granny."
* The Evenks live over a considerable part of Siberia (between the Taimyr Peninsula and Yakutia). The region is known as the Evenk National Region. Their main occupation is hunting, trapping and reindeer breeding. The traditional Evenk dwelling is a conical tent of hide supported on 20 to 25 poles. The traditional clolhing is made of skins and fur. Shamanism was the religion of the Evenks and these hunting people used to worship animals, "the masters of nature".
In Soviet times these nomadic reindeer-breeding people have become settled: villages and even townships appeared and their children started attending school and often went on to institutes of higher learning. An alphabet was evolved, and literature thus appeared. The former reindeer breeders and the Evenks became scientists engineers, artists, actors, meteorologists and poets.
