#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. By a resolution of the Presidium of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee national districts were formed in the places of small peoples of the North settlements. The Taimyr national district included four administrative regions: Avamsky, Dudinsky, Hatangsky and Ust-Yeniseisky.
At the beginning of 1932, the Taimyr Soviets first district congress took place in Dudinka, where the district formation was legally set.
According to the Taimyr District Executive Committee data on January 1, 1932, 7650 people lived in the district.
In 1934-1935, nine national boarding schools, ten nomadic schools, five Russian elementary schools and two secondary schools, five centers for the illiteracy elimination worked in Taimyr.
In 1934, with the Krasnoyarsk region formation the Taimyr national district was included in it.
