Specialists of the Bashkir Company “Bashneftegeofizika” are conducting seismic surveys in the South-Novoportovskoye and Surovoye license areas. Under the agreement with the administration of Yamalskiy district the company provides sponsorship to reindeer herders by purchasing food packages for them. They include sugar, butter, tea, various cereals, baked goods and condensed milk.
This time the company from Ufa held the big holiday in tundra, inviting residents of the surrounding tundra to it. The performers, who came to Yamal for the first time, appeared at the stage for the audience. Also they got acquainted with life of people in nomadic conditions. The reindeer herders installed and placed a choum nearby. (The note: a choum is a nomadic dwelling of reindeer herders; it is similar to a tepee). The guests were interested in seeing the home and household items of indigenous people. After the concert the tundra dwellers competed in speed and the ability to skillfully manage reindeer, and then all together enjoyed hot and tasty soup, as the press service of the administration of Yamalskiy district reports.
“Such events have the best effect on cultural exchange, brighten up everyday life of those people, who explore the tundra, and those people, who live here. “Bashneftegeofizika” builds strong relations with the local population, and we support it”, the head of the settlement Novy Port Sergey Sein said.
Sergey Sein, the adviser to the head of Yamalskiy district Khatyako Ezyngi, and the chairman of the public movement “Yamal” Valery Khudi communicated with the tundra dwellers. They told about social support measures for families with children and for students, changes in delivery and distribution of good and materials, recent legislative initiatives and the popular voting on the amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
