Arctic College of the Peoples of the North, which is located in Chersky, Nizhnekolymsky district, continues it’s fruitful work both with reindeer herders and students from reindeer herding families. Only less than a month ago young reindeer herders who are also second-year students at the College had interesting workshops and classes with the main zootechnician at the Turvaurgin Obshchina (nomadic community) and skillful reindeer herder – Petr Kaurgin. They not only disscussed main issues of their Obshchinas and ways how to be a better reindeer herder, they also had a trip with teachers to the winter pastures where they were working with reindeer.

At the very north of Russia, in one of the most remote villages of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) – Chersky village, there is a unique educational institution – Arctic College of the Peoples of the North. Most recently this college established the Arctic Centre for Domestic Reindeer Husbandry, which is to be included into the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry network. We also hope that the college will become a part of the UArctic EALAT Institute. The director of the college Elena Antipina told us about the current situation at the college and prospects for development of the college.
