Following the Reindeer
photographs and text by
There are five nationalities of reindeer herders that live on the territory of the Republic: Even, Evenk, Yukagir, Chukchi and Dolgan. All of them are smaller populations, for instance the total number of Yukagir in the world at this moment is only 1509 people.
During the period of one year I traveled with reindeer herders in different parts of Yakutia. I witnessed a unique culture that almost has not changed for centuries.
