Mikuoqin festival of Ewenki people
In late May every year, Ewenki people in pastoral areas celebrate the 'mikoqin' Festival.
On mikuoqin day, people wear bright and beautiful clothes, and relatives from far and near come together to castrate and brand livestock. The girls wore lamb skin skirts and were busy grasping the lamb with both hands. The boys rode the best 'bar horse', waved the harness and chased the fierce horse. Who is wearing a fierce horse, who wants to jump on the horse's back, or hold the horse's ears, instantly throw the horse to the ground, and cut off the horse's mane and tail.
This festival is also a day for the Ewenki people to calculate the increase of livestock in a year.
