The Nenet reindeer herders need to move their tent every few days throughout most of the year. Every time they migrate they must pack the whole tent away, drag it across the tundra on sledges, and erect it again in a fresh place, sometimes in temperatures of minus thirty degrees. Survival depends on working together as a team.
After staying in the wooded taiga for two months they start to migrate north following the ancient paths of migrating reindeer (caribou). In four months they will travel up to 1200km and must pack and move every three to five days to keep up with their herd. They must reach their summer quarters before the snows melt and flood great rivers with icy waters too cold and deep for the calves, born along the way, to cross.
Behind the tent an invisible line extends out into the tundra. It is called the sawei line, and a woman cannot cross it. It will bring bad luck to the tent. It was hard for them to explain exactly why, it is much stronger than a superstition and is connected to the spirit pole that stands at the back of the tent. This pole is sacred and a woman cannot cross underneath it either, and only a shaman may sit in this holy place. The origins of this are a little lost, there may be practical reasons, for example the back of the tent is traditionally where the men work, often together, so they have to be able to move about freely, but there are often two families in a single tent, so maybe one day the women just agreed territories to stop tripping over each other. Maybe it has such a mundane origin, or maybe there are real spirits that come up to the tent from behind and would bring harm to any women caught in the wrong place. If several tents pitch together, their lines must not cross either, so they tend to camp in a straight line to avoid this.
In answer to the many questions - on personal hygiene, everyone washes using a bowl of soap and hot water, just like most of our grandparents did before everyone had pipes and taps. There is no toilet in the tent as some have suggested, they find a spot a few hundred metres away. They are not pitching on a lake but a small mound where the snow blows a little thinner, Gas companies have been in the area and gave away snowmobiles as part of land access negotiations. Also sometimes there are competitions with them as prizes, sometimes they sell a load of reindeer and buy one. Most families now have at least one but the reindeer are still used a lot. Yes, they use a sled to go to town, or trading posts to buy groceries.

I wanted to catch the entire process, but have edited it down a little from the 40-45 minutes it takes to get from the open snows to a warm cosy home.

I'm always curious about what women do when they have their menstrual period. It's hard enough having it in modern society despite our easy access to sanitary napkins and tampons. Sometimes you have a heavy period, and you bleed profusely. What do they do? I worry about girls that go to school in 3rd world countries and have to deal with it every month.

I worked and lived as an educator in northern Canada among First Nations and Inuit people for almost a decade and, although much of their nomadic life has disappeared, it was interesting to see how "in the present" and immediate their lives remain, planning for anything past a few days is considered unnecessary when the circle is small and the challenges of the present are enough. It's a beautiful approach to life of course but absolutely ruinous when applied to living in modern times... which may explain why so much tragedy visits traditional peoples in a rapidly changing world.

@Nomad Architecture Quite honestly, I'm not sure building a large seal skin tupiq was practiced actively in the communities in which I taught.. and I believe they would have likely used caribou skins for the tent covering as they tended to be more plentiful and less costly... but I could be wrong about a lot of this. I wouldn't really know of contacts for such information but INAC (Indian and Northern Affairs Canada) would be in a better position to answer your inquiry.

Do you still have any contacts among this community? I have been trying to find a group who still have the knowledge to make a seal-skin tupiq. Please email me if you have any thoughts about where I might still find this knowledge. Thank you.

I wonder if anyone else watches these videos to gently fall asleep at night to. Of all the endless videos on this site I watch to find some peace, there is something about these that tame my soul and slow my breathing. Perhaps the knowledge that despite there being a world that envelopes humans in a overwhelming sea of technology, we are still, in our body and our blood, and for 99% of our history, nomadic wanderers, finding purpose and contentment in our true engagement with nature. The wind, the trees, the sun, the community of a tribe, they will be with us always. They need to be with us always. No matter how we adapt, no matter what we surround ourselves with, this innate need will always be within us. Upright apes, lost in a world we do not fully understand.

Today, the Nenets people face numerous challenges from the state and oil and gas companies that threaten the environment and their way of life. The pollution of heavy metals has been transferred to the humans through mosses and reindeer meat. The average life expectancy of Nenets is 45-50 years, the suicide rate is unusually high.

Normally I frown on people wearing real fur but these people deserve to wear it as they either hunt in order to get it or trade for it (I guess). It looks like an amazing way of life, very ecologically friendly. I'll never feel the same simply camping in a canvas tent again after seeing how these people do it.

Why do they move every four days?
CaliforniaCarpenter7 8 dagen geleden
Yeah, I could move every four days. The more I learn about the nomadic Inuit, the more I wonder if they have the meaning and purpose of life down. But no, I could not live in the same tent with another family, but I am a young man and hopefully I’d have my own tent and wife with maybe a couple kids to live with. My best friend and his family are Alaskan Inuit and him and his brothers are massive men. Chris is 6’ 6” in bare feet and Mike is 6’ 4” 375lbs. Some of the biggest dudes I’ve ever met, with gigantic heads and square jaws, they’re big enough to make most Samoans and Tongans look small! I am very curious about the dogs, we get hard winters up here in the forest of The Sierra Nevada Mountains, I’d like to raise a breed that is hearty enough to survive down to 0 degrees F even though it only gets down to about 10F here.
