Northeastern Federal University launches multi-language Arctic website on the culture of the indigenous peoples
A multi-language Arctic website on the language and cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Russian Far East has been launched by Northeastern Federal University in Yakutsk. The website features information on the language and cultural heritage of 40 small-numbered indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Russian Far East.
The website also has a GIS map with the results of the 2020 census on the settlement, practical language used, areas of traditional economy, historical maps of the settlements of the indigenous peoples of the North, and others.
The research is being conducted by UNESCO, the cartography lab of the Institute of Natural Sciences at Northeastern Federal University, and the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadaster and Cartography, as part of the Priority 2030 program to support and develop the country’s cultural and language diversity.
