On the 21st of February in Salekhard the regional department on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North together with the apparatus of the Public Chamber of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug will conduct the dictation dedicated to the International Mother Language Day in languages of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North – Nenets, Khanty, Selkoup and Komi. It is planned to conduct it also in municipalities of Yamal.
The dictation is being conducted for preservation and popularization of native languages of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North. All, who wish, are invited to participation.
As it should be reminded, last year the dictation was conducted in Salekhard in two languages. In Nenets language the participants wrote a text about traditional winter clothes published in the newspaper “Nyaryana Ngerm” (190 words), in Khanty language – a translation of an extract from the story by Anton Chekhov “Vanka” (250 words).
