The delegates received the report about activity of the branch and the Council of elders and planned the date of the re-election of the chairperson of the branch. Edward Yaungad presented the People’s program of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North. Earlier he had presented the program in tundra of Yamalskiy district and Seyakha.
As he says, it is important that as many as possible people would learn about the program. The program is being discussed widely. Only personal communication gives guarantees that the document will be viable and relevant. Practically all issues raising anxiety of indigenous population were developed in the People’s program. As he notes, of course, it is difficult to solve some of them immediately, but people should see, why these issues appeared and how to solve them. As he explains, the majority of questions touch upon the issue of housing.
Signing of the agreement between the administration of Shuryshkarskiy district and the Association “Yamal is for descendants” took place on the same day. The document was signed by the head of the district Andrey Golovin and the president of the Association Edward Yaungad.
