Abstract

Anabarski district in NW Sakha was traditionally a district with mixed hunting/reindeer herding economy. Unusual for tundra reindeer herding, domestic reindeer herding in the Anabar tundra contained many features typical of taiga reindeer herding (riding of mounted deer, milking). In the local economic system, rich reindeer herders focused more on herding and poor people either worked for rich reindeer herders or hunted seasonally.
