Daniar Seminova, Iengra, Russia

Daniar Seminova lives in Iengra and belongs to the indigenous Evenki people. The Evenks traditional culture and way of life now mostly lies in the museum his grandmother looks after. Like the nomadic Nenets tribes of the Yamal Peninsula they traditionally migrated with herds of reindeer. Affected migration routes and industrial developments such as the construction of an oil pipeline have prevented their traditional culture from flourishing.
