«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 are moving in Northern direction almost every day, because we want to snake off from other private reindeer herdsmen and their herds  - to avoid herds mixing. Every day there is a lot of things to do: our family is keeping the reindeers herd nead the chum to avoind them to move away and mix with animals from other herds.     

We hope during next days to find time to install the Internet smeller and connect to the Internet. But everyday labour takes the whole time until now. 
We displaed the bread we've bought (800 loaves of bread) into several narty (180 loaves a narty). We will dry bread later, when weather becomes warmes. 
Hung mobile phone almost to the top of one of the chum poles - this is only way to connect to mobile network here in tundra. Alexandra staying high on the stool called to her sister to wish her a happy birthday.  
We are ready to go to another kaslanie tomorrow.
