For forty-three years now, Kiryak Petrovich Adukanov has been in charge of reindeer herding unit number four. Every year, from March to November, it passes long-trodden routes with reindeer herders. He lives in a reindeer herd, where there are more than two thousand livestock, preserving the traditional way of life of the Evens. With the departure of “patriarchs” like him, both the language of this people and traditions may disappear.
