The disappearing language of the Yukaghirs will be studied by children in the summer camps of Yakutia. Courses are organized for a presidential grant.

According to the press center of Yakutia in Moscow, in addition to studying the endangered language in the camps, children will get acquainted with the culture of this small people of the North.

As noted by the head of the project “Kuzhuun Shorile” (“Rainbow”), Valentina Akimova, director of the Yukhagir Yukaghir revival charitable foundation, the children’s camp will open on June 10 in the village of Andryushkino and the village of Chersky in the Nizhnekolymsky district. Here is a place of compact residence of the Yukagirs. In July, a camp will open in the village of Nelemnoye, Verkhnekolymsky district.

Everyone can study at the camp. Interest in classes was shown not only by representatives of a small nation, but also by other residents of Yakutia. And in August, to create a linguistic environment, it is planned to hold the traditional republican holiday of the Yukagir people of Shahadiibe.

The authors of the Kuzhuun Shorile project will also publish a methodical manual on the Yukagir language that can be used in schools by the end of the year. A mobile application for learning the Yukagir language has already been launched. UNESCO classifies the Yukagir language as disappearing, in Russia there are only 1,6 thousand people according to the 2010 census. And only 10% of them knew their language and culture.
