Culture of peoples of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia)

The Sakha Republic (Yakutia) is one of numerous regions in Russia. More then 129 representatives of different nationalities live in the republic. Each nation carefully keeps its culture and preserves its originality, so organization of different national communities and unions contributes to it. There are 32 officially registered national communities in Yakutsk, such as: small indigenous peoples of the North, Kazakh, Buryat, Russian, Kirghiz, Belarusian, Lithuanian, Armenian, Polish, German, Korean and many others. The President and the Government of the Sakha Republic, the Ministry of nations and federative affairs of the Sakha Republic and also the Republican scientific and methodical center of folklore and socio-cultural activity after A.E.Kulakovsky give great support to these communities. They help practically and methodically to organize national holidays, to develop applied art and folklore. All communities keep in contact; actively support each other in exchanging experience, in getting acquainted with national traditions, customs and cultures. So all these activities help to preserve traditions and customs of peoples of Yakutia, broadening and further development of national cultures and transmission of heritage from generation to generation.
