The boarding school of the settlement Kutopyugan will receive the grant in the sphere of folklore of indigenous northerners. The grant in the size 200 thousand rubles will be allocated to fulfillment of the project “Movement: from the depth of centuries to ethnic modernity”.
Pupils of the boarding school, the folkloric ensemble “Severniye Notki” – “Northern notes (of music)”, local connoisseurs of ethnic traditions and customs of indigenous peoples of the North will participate in the project. They will study cultural traditions through reconstruction of ancient rituals of indigenous peoples of Yamal.
Two ethnic and cultural programs will be developed: for the ritual “Nerdena khalya yalya” (the holiday of the first fish) and the ritual “Ta yer yalya” (the holiday of the mid-summer). The participants will sew ethnic costumes and will make attributes for performances and ritual acts. Souvenirs will be made for guests, who will be present at conducting of the ritual. According to the tradition, guests of indigenous peoples of the North never leave without souvenirs and presents, as it is said in the press-service of the head of the region to the news agency “Sever-Press”.
The decision on giving of the grant was taken by the expert council in the sphere of folklore of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
