Warmest Tent on Earth - Pitching in the Siberian Arctic Winter - Ненецкая палатка чум

4 549 531 Näkymät

The Nenet reindeer herders need to move their tent every few days throughout most of the year. Every time they migrate they must pack the whole tent away, drag it across the tundra on sledges, and erect it again in a fresh place, sometimes in temperatures of minus thirty degrees. Survival depends on working together as a team.
After staying in the wooded taiga for two months they start to migrate north following the ancient paths of migrating reindeer (caribou). In four months they will travel up to 1200km and must pack and move every three to five days to keep up with their herd. They must reach their summer quarters before the snows melt and flood great rivers with icy waters too cold and deep for the calves, born along the way, to cross.
Behind the tent an invisible line extends out into the tundra. It is called the sawei line, and a woman cannot cross it. It will bring bad luck to the tent. It was hard for them to explain exactly why, it is much stronger than a superstition and is connected to the spirit pole that stands at the back of the tent. This pole is sacred and a woman cannot cross underneath it either, and only a shaman may sit in this holy place. The origins of this are a little lost, there may be practical reasons, for example the back of the tent is traditionally where the men work, often together, so they have to be able to move about freely, but there are often two families in a single tent, so maybe one day the women just agreed territories to stop tripping over each other. Maybe it has such a mundane origin, or maybe there are real spirits that come up to the tent from behind and would bring harm to any women caught in the wrong place. If several tents pitch together, their lines must not cross either, so they tend to camp in a straight line to avoid this.
In answer to the many questions - on personal hygiene, everyone washes using a bowl of soap and hot water, just like most of our grandparents did before everyone had pipes and taps. There is no toilet in the tent as some have suggested, they find a spot a few hundred metres away. They are not pitching on a lake but a small mound where the snow blows a little thinner, Gas companies have been in the area and gave away snowmobiles as part of land access negotiations. Also sometimes there are competitions with them as prizes, sometimes they sell a load of reindeer and buy one. Most families now have at least one but the reindeer are still used a lot. Yes, they use a sled to go to town, or trading posts to buy groceries.

I wanted to catch the entire process, but have edited it down a little from the 40-45 minutes it takes to get from the open snows to a warm cosy home.

  • It sure takes family work to set it up! I counted six adults making the first one and three adults making the second one. I wouldn't mind living in one of these tents. Very sturdy and warm, lol! I assume the tent poles are made from a kind of pine tree that grows straight and tall. This home is very similar to the gers made by the Mongolians. The Mongols herd sheep to get wool for insulation. The Nenet people have only the caribou for hides. Interesting to see how they each solve this problem.

  • I actually like the music. I love these videos and thank you very much for doing them. It is so interesting to see how others survive and live; they live for the most part as our ancestors did and I think their way of life so close to the earth is much better than the modern way. We should learn to respect them and aspire to live more like they do, we would all be much more healthy too. It is such a shame that they are now consuming more carbs and sugar and eating a more modern diet that will certainly lead to health problems for them. The old ways always to seem to be better for us and the earth too.

    • It's in the vid description. They are reindeer herders, so when the herds migrate they have to keep moving their home to stay with their herd. It's important that the herds move that fast so the calves born along the way to summer grazing don't have to risk crossing too many waterways swollen with snowmelt.

  • I am curious about the religious or cultural history involving the line that a woman cannot cross around the tent. The captions mention it a couple times, so it seems important, but there aren't any comments discussing it. I wonder if there is a story that is passed down explaining why the women can't cross the line and what that line represents.

    • Yet USA is bitching about Russia and human rights. At least these people are given choice to live their way, they preserved their language and culture. The USA commited genocide to Native Americans, took their land, banned their cultural integrity and language, put them in reservations, even there killed them with smalpox infected blankets. Then slavery and later Jim Crows law and segregation, of African people. At the same time US is claiming to be a beacon of democracy and human rights. Bombing other countries, and civiliand to export that democracy. Now hungry for Russian oil and resources spreads propaganda and preparing to destroy the nation that let these people on the video live and be free.

I didn't read about it until it was almost finished but could tell they had done that before, kids sure knew to stay out of the way till the first skin was up, or just before it. Amazing to think about that life, all that work and then they've got to go to work. When I realized they had put all the stuff that goes on the inside where it belongs before the poles were put up and covered I knew this had to have been going on 'forever', they need to start making tents w/ removable 'floors', you stake out where you want the tent, roll out the sleeping bag, get all the gear placed on the floor, set up the tent and "zip" closed the top to the bottom. Great video, THX really enjoyed it.
