The guests of Salekhard visited the community liaison office opened on the square near the Cultural and Business Center. This information was given to a correspondent of IA “Sever-Press” by a member of the youth branch of the Association of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North “Yamal is for descendants” Artur Okotetto.
The guests from Italy and Finland came to the community liaison office in the choum (similar to a tepee). They are participating in the international forum “Russia. Indigenous ethnic minorities of the North, Siberia and the Far East”. They came to see how the choum looked like. It is exotic for them. Also they are planning to visit the Reindeer Herder’s Day. In the community liaison office the guests had a cup of tea with sweets. It was very interesting to communicate. Besides, they understand and speak Russian well, as he tells.
In addition, Artur Okotetto notes that residents of Yamal also actively come to the community liaison office, basically with suggestions and not with complaints. Moreover they want to learn more about improvement of living conditions in tundra.
As we should remind, in Salekhard near the Cultural and Business Center the volunteers of the youth branch of the Association of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North “Yamal is for descendants” set the choum (it is a dwelling of nomads, reindeer herders; it is similar to a tepee). All the people, who wish, can come and write an application on their problems, express remarks and suggestions. They will be scrutinized during 30 days. The vice-presidents of the Association Edman Nerkagi and Sergey Khudi are conducting the reception of citizens. When it is possible, the president of the public movement of indigenous peoples Edward Yaungad is also participating in the work.
