Description
Summary:The Yakut, including the Dolgan, are the farthest north Turkic people. They live in Yakutia, the Sovereign Sakha Republic of the Russian Federation formed in 1992. This file consists of 17 excerpted or complete documents based primarily on fieldwork carried out in two periods: the late 1800s and the 1920s and 30s. The most comprehensive accounts of Yakut culture from each of these periods are Sieroszewski and Jochelson (1933). The earliest account on the Yakut is based on reports from a late-18th-century geographical expedition (Sauer). Topics covered by individual papers include history, material culture, shamanism and other religious ritual, clan system, reindeer herding and transportation, making of kumiss and associated rites, and folk tales. There are also two works are on the cultural history and family life of the closely related Dolgan people.
