AbstractDrawing on secondary data and government reports, this document outlines aspects of change and continuity in Yukaghir (Yukagir) culture and economy from earliest contact with Russians to the dismantling of the last nomadic camp. An important theme concerns rapid declines in population size due to violence, starvation, disease, assimilation, and a series of government programs that sought to end nomadism, whether based on reindeer herding or a combination of hunting, gathering and fishing.
