Chukotka, located in Russia's far northeast, is one of several territories of the Russian north where reindeer herding is the main occupation of indigenous residents. In the Soviet period, the reindeer herding was collectivized and centrally managed within sovkhozy (state farms). With the collapse of the Soviet Union came the application of Russia's privatization program to these sovkhozy, and many small privatized reindeer herding enterprises were created.
