 Khanty Language
The Khanty language is one of two Ob-Ugric languages (the other being Mansi), which together with Hungarian comprise the Ugric branch of the Finno-Ugric group of Uralic language family.
Khanty is predominantly an agglutinative language with no prepositions and numerous affixes, each of which expresses a particular function.
Khanty being one of the biggest and complex ethnic groups of the North Western Siberia generally preserved their total population number: 1926 - 22306 pers., 1950 - 19410 pers., 1970 - 21138 pers., 1979 - 20934 pers., 1989 - 22521 pers., thus natural growth of the population was either absent or compensated by assimilation processes.

 Mysteries of the Golden Woman of Ugra - by Paul Stonehill
Although the Khanty became (or were forced to become) Russian Orthodox Christians in the 17th and 18th centuries, they retained some of their beliefs and customs.
Russian explorers, such as G. Dunkin-Gorchavin who studied the Khanty in the beginning of the twentieth century, had this to say about them: they were extremely honest, peaceful, of good heart; they never fought among themselves, and created a system of shared welfare that eliminated poverty from their ranks.
But alcoholism and suicide plague the Khanty and Mansi: they lost their national identity, traditional livelihood, are unable to really conform to the industrial mode of life due to cultural differences, and often become social outcasts.

 Khanty Indigenous Tribe Harmed By Russian oil Industry
Khanty who live along the river traditionally have been the fisherman while Khanty living on the upper reaches of the river devote their time primarily to hunting.
The Khanty are being deprived of their main sources of income from the sale of deerskin and furs and are thus becoming impoverished (see- "Twilight of the Reindeer Herders?" by Geoff Winestock).
The Khanty also tend to move from settlements on the rivers inland during winter, and live in homes built of wood as opposed to the summer homes which are essentially tents made of animal skins.It should be noted that summer in Siberia is still quite cold.

This period was marked by the forcible relocation of Khanty families from their traditional family hunting territories (on Agan River) or by the destruction of the natural resources of occupied family territories (on lower Pim and Trom-Agan river systems) which eventually forced the families to voluntarily relocate.
Those Khanty who had been forcibly relocated or who had voluntarily removed to villages at an earlier time were thus summarily declared to have no right to use lands on which they still hunted and fished in order to feed their families.
The reason for this destruction is clear, and threatens other Khanty sacred high places: in the Ob= Basin, the few hills that exist are the principal source of sand used to construct the raised roadbeds, drilling and construction pads required as part of the infrastructure associated with the expansion of petroleum development.

The Khanty could roughly be divided into three groups — the Northern, the Eastern, and the Southern Khanty, differentiated from each other by their language, life style and details of world outlook.
The Khanty attach great importance to offering sacrifices to their gods and local spirits, since good luck in hunting and fishing — and accordingly, the survival of the people — is thought to depend on the favour of gods.
The episode recalls Gondatti’s account of the Northern Khanty who maintain that the sky god provides the god of underworld with a list of those doomed to die, and the latter refers to it when selecting the souls to be herded to his realm (Kulemzin 1984: 126).

Eastern Khanty are subsistence hunters and fishermen, sometimes reindeer herders, who still maintain their clan system, their native religion and language, and their traditional way of life in widely separated extended family settlements on traditional hunting territories, often a day or more by boat from telephones and electricity.
The Khanty families who live along these rivers in more than fifty extended family settlements, were compelled to sacrifice their winter hunting territories as land for the new zapovednik.
There are approximately 850 Khanty on the Yugan, the last nearly pristine territory of native living in the region, and their traditional way of life is being overwhelmed by oil.

Arctic reindeer pastoralists, the Yamal Nenets and Khanty traveled great distances up and down the peninsula, moving from northern tundra pastures in summer to the more protected sub-Arctic taiga in winter.
The culture and technology of the Nenets and Khanty were well adapted to the nomad pastoralist lifestyle of this arctic environment.
In such circumstances, questions about gas development can be addressed with little if any serious negotiations - or a few urban-based native elites, strongly influenced by regional bureaucrats and powerful industrial managers, could sign documents that fail to solve the problems of land, resources, and compensation in an equitable manner.

We have made extensive fieldwork visits among the Khanty of the Yugan every year since then.  It very quickly became clear that some urgent steps needed to to be taken.
