The Eagle Huntress

Eagle hunting, one of the most dramatic and primal relationships between man and beast, is alive and well in the Altai Mountains which run from Siberia in Russia down to Mongolia’s Gobi Desert. One of the world’s last true wildernesses. Eagle hunting is one of the endangered cultural traditions in the world today listed by UNESCO as a living cultural heritage in 2010. There are only about 70 traditional eagle hunters left in the world. This young girl is one of them.
