Proposals to improve the quality of life of small indigenous peoples have been developed in Chukotka. The initiatives contributed to the draft program of state support for the traditional economic activities of indigenous peoples in the Arctic zone of Russia. The proposals were made taking into account the requests of the indigenous people themselves.

According to the press service of the district government, the document was prepared by the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East together with the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East and the Arctic.

As the Governor of the Okrug Roman Kopin noted, the developed proposals will contribute to the support and development of reindeer husbandry and marine animal hunting, communities, and improve the quality of life in the tundra. These proposals require federal support.

Yelena Evtyukhova, head of the Chukotka Indigenous Minorities Department, said that the district had sent ideas for financing indigenous peoples' communities, introducing innovative technologies for processing reindeer husbandry and marine hunting products, equipping communities that hunt marine mammals with modern equipment. It was also proposed to legislatively define the types of nomadic dwellings, and to introduce the concepts of "commercial sea hunter" and "reindeer herder (hostess of nomadic dwellings)" into the all-Russian classifier of professions.

In addition, the draft program provides for previously sent proposals from the Arctic regions to clarify the procedure for exercising the rights of the indigenous peoples of the North for the free use of land for conducting a traditional economy.

The number of indigenous peoples in the Arctic zone of Russia is 102 thousand people, of which almost 17 thousand people live in Chukotka - this is a third of the total population of the district.
