Religions of Ognia

With it being former a former Russian colony, its likely that Orthodox Christianity is strong there due to Russian missionairies. However what would the Ognian native religion look like? Mitro 14:49, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps, though, the islands on or near South America, from which the Ornians came, would have had earlier contact with the Roman Catholic missionaries of Chile and Argentina. The history of the area just before the Russians discovered Antarctica (OTL), revolved around a gold rush in Tierra del Fuego. The Salesian Orderr ministered to indigenous peoples interred on Dawson Island in order for Europeans to mine the local gold. With a milder climate in the south, it is concievable that earlier efforts would have been made among the Orgnian peoples. That would upset TTL a little if they had known of the population on the island, but its a possiblity.
As for the native religion, it seems that by the time they were observed in OTL, the indigenous peoples practiced a shamanism which impersonated "spirits" in an initiation rite. The Wikipedia article is not too much help, being short and showing too much bias. I'd think that an interpolation of the Amerind shamanism would produce an approximation of a native religion.
