More than 50 residents of Yamal have tested their knowledge and took part in the dictation on the Khanty and Nenets languages. About it reports REGNUM with reference to the press service of the head region.
Vice-Governor of Yamal Irina Sokolova noted that similar scale action occurred in the district for the first time. “On the Yamal Peninsula, almost 60 per cent of the indigenous population are fluent in the languages of the Nenets, Khanty and Selkup. The language of the small peoples around is the language of everyday communication. And this is the link for the transmission of traditions and culture from the older to the younger generation”, — she added.
The dictation was held on 7 August in Salekhard and was dedicated to the celebration of the International day of world’s indigenous people, celebrated on 9 August.
Results participants will be able to find out on August 12 on the website of the regional Public chamber, obtained by entering registration ID number.
The publication notes that according to the official returns of January 1, 2019, in the County lived nearly 50 thousand representatives of indigenous peoples of the North. 5.9 thousands of students have access to the study of the Khanty and Nenets languages.
