On the Commander Islands celebrated Aboriginal Day

In the only settlement of the Aleutian region of the Kamchatka Territory, the village of Nikolskoye, the Day of the Aborigine was celebrated. According to the press service of the government of Kamchatka, for the first time the holiday was held not in the village itself, but outside it - near the Kamenka River. Young people usually gather here. A stage was built especially for the holiday, light and sound were fine-tuned. The public from the village to the meadow was brought by the bus of the district administration - the oldest Aleuts of the village got to the holiday, who could hardly have come themselves. In total, about 700 people live on the Commanders, and half of them are Aleuts.

Before entering the clearing, all the guests underwent a comic ceremony of initiation into the aborigines. After that, the audience willingly joined the dance marathon, participated in competitions of national cuisine, a costume with Aleutian symbols, songs and fairy tales in the Aleutian language. In addition, an exhibition of bouquets "Gifts of the Tundra" was organized. The saxophone sounded, and the fireworks became the culmination of the holiday.

Local old-timers, whose activity over the years has been connected with the preservation of Aleutian culture, received certificates, letters of thanks, and valuable gifts.
