Sinilga is the Evenk feminine name. In Tungus language, Sinilga means ‘snow’, something very delicate, clean and beautiful.
A girl was born in a Tungus family many moons ago. As the legend goes, when she was born her father came out of their rawhide tent and saw the
snow falling softly from the sky over the ground. And the girl was given a wonderful and mysterious name Sinilga. When the daughter grew up, she
became a shaman. At the same time she was a woman of rare beauty and intelligence. Men followed her into the forest leaving their families and
never came back. She died young but her spirit still lives in the forests.
