Nornickel to help build ethnic site in Hatanga Bay

July 01, 2022

The new space will be opened on the World's Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. An ethnic site with a chum, a stage, flagpoles, street stalls and a children’s playground will appear in the Syndassko village, a rural settlement of Hatanga. It will be erected as the Min Doiduum (My Homeland) project’s part, which won the World of Taimyr Nornickel’s grant competition. The amount of the grant was 5.5 million rubles.

The idea’s author is Zhanna Kirgizova, chairman of the Board of the Family and Tribal Community of the Northern Indigenous Minorities Oloktook. The project is aimed at preserving the Dolgan people’s traditions, culture and language and developing the Dolgans traditional residence’s territory.

The Taimyr administration’s press service said:

“The ethno site will be located on the Hatanga bay’s shores and will become the prototype of a unique place for the Syndassko village called Serge (Master), which means that this area should have a master”.

Zhanna Kirgizova has already held general meetings with the villagers – project partners to assign responsibilities.

The northerners have leveled the territory with gravel. The workers set up the stage and began the ethno site’s entrance part’s construction. A designer from Krasnoyarsk will arrange the recreation area.

The master class on making souvenirs with beading craftswomen has been held and the photo contest Path of the Ancestors timed to coincide with the professional holiday the Reindeer Breeder’s Day.

The ethno site is planned to open on August 9, the World’s Indigenous Peoples’ Day as a gift for the villagers.
