A young girl gets ready to bathe and clean a baby reindeer. All children are taught to raise and care for reindeer and respect them as fellow creatures.
The Dukha are also called the “Tsaatan,” meaning “reindeer herder”. Today, only 44 Dukha families remain, which is approximately 200-400 people. Unfortunately, the reindeer population is also diminishing.
