The global Decade of Indigenous Languages starts in 2022.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Russia has begun to create an online translator for the languages ​​of indigenous peoples, including those living in the Arctic zone.

Experts have developed a model for filling an electronic dictionary-glossary for the languages ​​of 19 indigenous nations.

“Russia is approaching the Decade of Languages ​​with a lot of experience and opportunities. In our country, relations have developed between indigenous peoples and state structures, in which the opinion of the indigenous groups has a decisive influence on the preservation of languages”, TASS quotes the words of Inessa Tomskaya, deputy chairman of the Council of Indigenous Communities of the Indigenous Peoples.

According to the latest all-Russian census of the population in 2010, the number of indigenous peoples living in the Russian Arctic is 102 thousand. According to the same census, 10 132 indigenous people live in Taimyr. About 5.4 thousand of them are Dolgans, almost 3.5 thousand are Nenets, 747 are Nganasans, 266 are Evenki and 204 are Enets. There are also Kets (about 20 people) and Selkups (about ten).

As we wrote earlier, for more than 30 years, the newspaper Taimyr has published a page in the languages ​​of five indigenous ethnic groups of our peninsula – Dolgans, Nenets, Nganasans, Evenks and Enets.
