Introduction / History

The Yukaghir live in Sakha and Chukotka, Russia. They are a indigenous people group who, like the Nivkh, are known as the reindeer people. The main traditional activity is nomadic and semi-nomadic hunting of deer, moose, wild sheep, and sable, as well as fishing. Reindeer are bred mostly for transportation. Over the years with the decline of their traditional economic activities, the dismal environmental situation of their lands and the decrease in the population of the Yukaghir people, the Yukaghir people and their language are close to being obsolete


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Yukaghir still practice shamanism, and animal worship, particularly the bear. They believe the spirits can act as protectors and as enemies of people.
