The Dolgans are preparing to harness their animals in the Atchayvayam region of Kamchatka. This domestication relationship - the reindeer system - is being studied by researchers from the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France as part of the "Biological and Cultural Adaptation Programme". They are working among the native communities of Siberia, whose traditions are based on the omnipresence and extensive use of this animal.
