Brzakova says the Evenk generation that, theoretically, would be able to return to the region's original nomadic way of life no longer has the experience to do so.
Brzakova says the "Evenks want the Evenk Autonomous Okrug to be Evenk." However, she says Evenk nationalism is not expressed in terms of violence but rather in an interest in gaining positions in the local administration -- and in the development of a fledgling Evenk intelligentsia.
Brzakova acknowledges that the chances of the Evenk intelligentsia helping the region find a way out of its dire economic situation are "very small." But she says young Evenks do represent a certain hope for the future.

The Evenk were formed through a mixture of the local population of Eastern Siberia with the Tungus tribes which came from the Cis-Baikal and the Trans-Baikal region.
With the establishment of the Yakutsk fort (1632) the Russian domination extended to the Evenk of the Lena basin, and by the middle of the 17th century, in the Cis-Baikal and Trans-Baikal regions.
Some groups of the Evenk did not use the reindeer, hunting on foot, but it was exactly the use of the reindeer for riding which distinguishes the Evenk from other peoples.

The oil field is home to the Evenks, a reindeer-raising and hunting people who claim the oil fields as their exclusive territory and have the backing of federal law, which reserves the area for their use.
Oil men say that Evenks, desperate for drink, were prepared to swap once-prized reindeer for vodka; the Evenks claim the oil men shot some of their reindeer herds from helicopters.
The unique sub-species of sturdy, broad-backed reindeer bred by the Evenks, which they use for riding through the forest to hunt elk, deer, bear and trap sable, mink and red squirrel for the St Petersburg markets, is close to extinction.
