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

เผยแพร่เมื่อ 10 ก.พ. 2021
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.

  • How come u have to move every 4 days

  • I wonder how they do laundry, or deal with diapers for the babies. I’m sure they’ve got a system down pat, I’d like to see it.

  • Why do they keep moving every 3/4 days?

  • So much struggling life,just harm to self dislike

  • Amazing. I have never seen snow in my life and yet these people live in it every day (or at least half the year?)

  • Where do you sleep at night? in the tents or in your own car

  • I noticed they have some camouflage material? Where do they get those type of things? Some gloves look familiar as well.

  • Why do they move every 4 days?

  • I liked this amazing video 😍

  • Edir Macedo Bezerra, leader of the universal church forces Pastors to have a vasectomy to avoid children, save money and fill the church's saddlebag... what you see are many Pastors mutilated, abandoned, forgotten, despised, hungry and in misery

  • آرزو دارم یه اینچنین جایی زندگی کنم.بدور از دغدغه و دم و دود و صدای ماشین و موتور و هوای آلوده...چه آرامشی داره چنین جایی😍

  • كنت احسب هاذولي في افلام كرتون فقط

  • How absolutely beautiful. If only the Human race could learn I mean really learn from these wonderful Human's and the Native American Native Alaskan Peoples the world would be a better home. You NEVER EVER see these beautiful soul's protesting "Native American Indians lives matter" Do You? Kindest thoughts from Victoria Australia xoxo I'm subscribed now

  • I love this people

  • Those are the cutest kids I've ever seen.

  • Give me Tenerife any day ....................

  • Beautiful people. Their hair and complexion are European and faces are like Mongolians.

  • I keep saying, " its so cold in here OMG its freezing and its supposed to be summer heatwave. Ooh cold" and then this video shows up in my feed. So as I am humbled by these amazing people, I am also feeling deep respect for the power of advanced technology and the reality of algorithms. Are there sound algorithms?

    • Or the fact we all have to work together for our own survival. Jesus help us do the impossible.

  • I love this life b.c it the most chipest and healthy.

  • How work this women, even deliver the mens. Also have to cook for the mens. This is abusive.

  • An incredible video that is testament to human endurance. They work as a highly effective team to pack up and rebuild a home every 3-5 days. Mind blowing.

  • 🤔 where is the toilet and shower how and where they do the🛁🚽

  • Amei...👏👏👏

  • I assume, that they have to move all 4 days because their animals need food. If you are used to such kind of living, you just will accept it. How can anybody live in a town ?

  • To są prawdziwi ludzie a nie wychuchane Darmozjady Wstyd

  • The world is so amazing. Thanks for this video.

  • 저렇게 어린 애기들이 벌써 엄마와 생이별한 것도 안타깝고, 애기들 낳고 돌보다 애기들과 생이별하고 병으로 고생하는 알롱이도 안타깝고, 전부 불쌍하고 안타까운거 투성이지만, 이게 최선인것 같네요. 알롱이와 애기들 잘 보살펴 주고 계신 앵님께 멀리서나마 감사드립니다. 그저 알롱이랑 알롱이 애기들 전부 건강하기를 바랄 뿐입니다.

  • Lord why does this music remind me of the music from Halloween???.... Got my heart beating..

  • I don't understand, come on, nobody knew about anyone in the past. why this trouble ...

  • I can nearly do. My laundry every 4 days, must less tear down and build my house.😳

    • Beautiful

  • Omg, these ppl are Amazing.

  • Who is Donald Trump You ever actually stepped back and looked? Ever wonder if he could be the antichrist? Lets look at some things that just might point that direction. 1)Did he announce to the world that he was the son of perdition? On live TV that aired around the world August 2019 he looked to HEAVEN and said " Im the chosen one". 2) He also said before a live audience and on air at Liberty university that He doesn't ask GOD for forgiveness he just goes and does better. 3) He constantly brags on himself and boast oh so much of his abilities. 4) Israel put him on their coin and says hes their saviour. 5) he brought the "abraham accord " supposed peace agreement to the middle east. 6) Look at how the Christian community stands , promotes and worships this blasphemous , lying man.Christians are the ones hes blinding not the lost. Satan already has the lost hes after GOD'S children. 7) The 💉/mark is his. He said when it would be out, and it was, even though scientist and doctors said it wasn't possible. Well it came out when he said.And yes its killing many and not only abominable but altering GOD'S creation. 8) His favorite poem mimics Eve in the garden and people mostly christians eat it up and in their face deception stares. 9)666 is tied to him in so many ways not to mention its his most used hand gesture. 10) Why did he create a space force to fight aliens or maybe the two witnesses that will tell the world who he is. Do you worship him? Did you fall for the lies? Did you take his mark? I hope and pray your answer is no to all of these. Its time people look to JESUS and away from the lies of this world. The end is not coming its here. The mark is the 💉and many that professed to belong to JESUS sold their souls for lies.

  • life so tough there, no place for old and incapable people.

  • This is vernacular architecture and regional traditions that cannot be lost. Thank you for filming and presenting this to us all.

  • How they take the bath?

  • Someone needs to get that baby to a doctor for Pete sake… not a good cough at all…poor child..

  • Do not fart..stove ..in use

  • Looks cozy!

  • No matter where you live its important we make it homely, this was great team work and family and massive effort thankyou

  • That appears to be a lot of extra work that isn't necessary. Didn't anyone ever think of building little shelters along the way that could be utilized on the way back? I can understand pots and pans etc being dragged along but such huge yurts are unnecessary. Their life is no more than taking down the yurt and reconstructing it again. Anyone who has ever moved all of their belongs from one apartment to another or from one home to another knows the work and headache involved. Now imagine doing this every week. I really feel sorry for these people.

  • Any yellow snow here? Nope, pitch up.
