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

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.

  • Yeah, I could move every four days. The more I learn about the nomadic Inuit, the more I wonder if they have the meaning and purpose of life down. But no, I could not live in the same tent with another family, but I am a young man and hopefully I’d have my own tent and wife with maybe a couple kids to live with. My best friend and his family are Alaskan Inuit and him and his brothers are massive men. Chris is 6’ 6” in bare feet and Mike is 6’ 4” 375lbs. Some of the biggest dudes I’ve ever met, with gigantic heads and square jaws, they’re big enough to make most Samoans and Tongans look small! I am very curious about the dogs, we get hard winters up here in the forest of The Sierra Nevada Mountains, I’d like to raise a breed that is hearty enough to survive down to 0 degrees F even though it only gets down to about 10F here.

  • Wonderful work you have done with this documentary. Yes I could move like them every 4 days, if I had been born in that culture. They seem happy and well adapted to their environment. I hope for their sake they don't go to close to what we call civilization. Desease and alienation would await them.

Your kind if placed back in the 17-1800's would have no true life skills and would be the first to die off. Your whole reliance on all the above items makes you week. Only the strong survive, and your comment tells me you are of the week that will die off.

Not to mention the taxing task of setting up camp and tearing it down constantly! I have a hard time imagining why someone would choose that lifestyle.
