#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Employees of the UNESCO Department of the North-Eastern Federal University (NEFU) visited Taimyr and Chukotka, where they recorded native speakers of the language and culture of the indigenous indigenous peoples.

The study was carried out within the project Arctic Indigenous Peoples’ Linguistic and Cultural Heritage Digitalization, reports the official website of NEFU.

For a week, scientists worked in Dudinka. According to Anatoly Zhozhikov, head of the NEFU UNESCO department, recordings of the Nenets, Nganasan, Dolgan, Evenki and Enets 23 representatives’ live speech were made. These are, first of all, experts and bearers of languages, cultures, traditions, customs and folklore. The collected material will replenish the content of the Arctic multilingual portal, in which all the indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East of the Russian Federation are presented in 11 sections.

In addition, an official cooperation agreement was signed between the Taimyr College and the NEFU UNESCO department on the Arctic Indigenous Peoples’ Linguistic and Cultural Heritage Digitalization project.

“We will cooperate with Taimyr College in the development and implementation of innovative educational, research and cultural events. All of them will be aimed at preserving and developing the linguistic and cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples of the Arctic. We also plan to work on collecting materials and compiling an invaluable digital collection of the languages and cultures of the indigenous peoples of the Arctic,” commented Anatoly Zhozhikov.

Previously, we told you that an album of northern ethnic music was released in Russia for the first time; digital devices will soon be able to display the symbols that are used in the North peoples languages.
