Introduction / History

Traditionally the Orochi people made their living by fishing in their homeland, which is in some of colder regions of Siberian Russia. In the 1930s they were given their own homeland, but this was soon changed due to their small population. In time, some of them moved to Ukraine.


Where Are they Located?

The traditional Orochi homeland is in the southern part of the Khabarovsk Krai. They lived along the Amur and Kopp rivers. Later, many of them moved to Sakhalin, a Russian owned island north of Japan. Others now live in Ukraine.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Today the Orochi people are nearly extinct, and their population continues to shrink. Their language is dying out; it is not a written language. The remaining Orochi people have no choice but to become like the majority people around them. In Russia, they become Russian and in Ukraine, they must become more like the Ukrainians.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Almost all the Orochi people in Ukraine are tied to their traditional religion, which can best be described as shamanistic. Some are secular.


What Are Their Needs?

A people without hope or a future are in great need of help as they adjust to a difficult future. The Orochi people might need help in adjusting to having productive lives in Ukraine.
