Cultural Survival

Who are the indigenous peoples of Russia? 



The Teleut is a Turkic people, living in its historical homeland, mainly in 5 villages of the Kemerovo region, in South Western Siberia. There are only 2,500 individuals left, but they have preserved aspects of their traditional way of life.

Today I will tell you about the Tuva Republic. The harmony between nature and culture is what touches me the most in Tuva. Their customs and traditions: Khuresh, the throat singing, horse racings, and everywhere these sacred natural places covered with multi-colored pieces of fabric all of this gives a feeling of spirituality. Spirits seem to be still here, everywhere, even in the endless steppe with these remnants of tumulus.

Exploring Russia's relationship with its Indigenous People.

Minorities that have been granted territorial recognition can be broadly divided into two categories: religious and linguistic minorities. This distinction does not reflect any official division between groups based on religion or language, but rather the primary element around which group self-identity is formed in each case.
