Photograph 8. Bayan Delger Oboo

The Bayan Delger Oboo is the only administrative group oboo that has been worshipped by the Khamnigan people since the 1920s, following their arrival in China. Since the Khamnigan are officially part of the "Evenki ethnic minority," their oboo ritual is held annually on June 18 during the official Evenki national celebration called Sebin jie 瑟宾节.
