«True people» (Nenei nenecha) – self-name of Nenets, the indigenous people of the Yamal peninsula, and the name of the complex 2015–2016 ethnographic expedition. Project participants and the visitors of the resource will be the part of the reindeer herders's family during the whole year just to «dive» in the casual life of the modern XXI century nomads.


We continue our kaslanie and rushing more in the Northern direction. April 30th, May 3rd, May 5th, and tomorrow - all these days are dedicated to further nomadic movement. Finally spring is coming to these areas: it's been already three days when air temperature doesn't drop lower that 3 degrees Celcius. Snow is wet and sticky. 

We want to share with you some pictures from April 2015.

Little Hesavako Serotetto provides already a big help to his reindeer herdsmen family.

Vandako - freight narta. Wintertime they load to this kind of carriage not more than 150 kgs and then control maximal weight manually. Vandako is used to store provision, clothes and other staff not essential for everyday use.
