Nomadic Herders Project Meets With Dukha Herders, Mongolia

February 15, 2015 • Philip BurgessBlog, ICR/WRH, Nomadic Herders, Projects, UArctic EALAT Institute

After meeting with reindeer herding Dukha youth in Ulan Bator (see story and photos here) last week, Professor Svein Mathiesen and young Sami herder Issat Turi travelled to Northern Mongolia to meet with Dukha herders on the land to discuss the ongoing implementation of the Nomadic Herders project and heard from herders and their families at first hand why the future of herding peoples in the taiga is facing such difficulties.

We have just posted a new gallery of images from their visit to Dukha herders which you can view here.

    I was lucky enough to spend a week with the Tsataan in August 2012, back then they talked about mineral supplements and the reindeers need for salt. Is there anyway to support these projects?

      Thanks for your note Ella, keep an eye on the site to follow progress of the Nomadic Herders project, which is really only getting underway.
