    sometimes we forget how close we were to nature. I bet most people freaked when they saw the raw meat. But they look a lot happier than some of the people I see shopping/drunk/high/stressed on the UK streets every Saturday

      There isn’t many people left who are not effected by the trappings of today. This is a lovely report on these peoples lives.

    I dont see and russian government support for this ppl, as surely they exploited their land digging for hydrocarbons

    • Maxim Ч says:

      Ty-ty. And what support would the government give them? They are choosing to live off of the land. Should the Russian government settle them in cities and destroy their traditional way of life?

      There is a lot of support, actually. State buys their products for a very high price. These people have snowmobiles and fuel, their children are educated in special boarding schools so they can later choose another life if they want to. What else do they need? Lots of welfare so they can abandon their work and drink alcohol all the time? Welfare destroys such nations.

    A few days ago I attended an event to educate the life of the Nenets. Hand-fed deer, listened to their stories, drums. What is happening is not really shown in the photo, but it was heard from directly Nenets. Our country is trying not to get involved in the culture of these unique people. Although it is clear that attention is paid to them. Eugene, Russia.
