Mon­go­lian Ways: Taiga - Win­ter Won­der­land

The UB Post - - What’s On -

Taiga is a win­ter won­der­land of Mon­go­lia. And one of the most in­ter­est­ing eth­nic groups liv­ing in Taiga is the Tsaatan or as they are bet­ter known – "The Rein­deer Peo­ple". A small tribe of Tsaatan con­sist­ing of about 40 fam­i­lies live with its herds of rein­deer in the forests. These grace­ful an­i­mals pro­vide the tribe with all its ba­sic needs - milk, trans­porta­tion, meat, skins and bones and antlers used as build­ing ma­te­ri­als and for tools.
