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.

    Who is Donald Trump
    You ever actually stepped back and looked?
    Ever wonder if he could be the antichrist?
    Lets look at some things that just might point that direction.
    1)Did he announce to the world that he was the son of perdition?
    On live TV that aired around the world August 2019 he looked to HEAVEN and said " Im the chosen one".
    2) He also said before a live audience and on air at Liberty university that He doesn't ask GOD for forgiveness he just goes and does better.
    3) He constantly brags on himself and boast oh so much of his abilities.
    4) Israel put him on their coin and says hes their saviour.
    5) he brought the "abraham accord " supposed peace agreement to the middle east.
    6) Look at how the Christian community stands , promotes and worships this blasphemous , lying man.Christians are the ones hes blinding not the lost. Satan already has the lost hes after GOD'S children.
    7) The 💉/mark is his.
    He said when it would be out, and it was, even though scientist and doctors said it wasn't possible. Well it came out when he said.And yes its killing many and not only abominable but altering GOD'S creation.
    8) His favorite poem mimics Eve in the garden and people mostly christians eat it up and in their face deception stares.
    9)666 is tied to him in so many ways not to mention its his most used hand gesture.
    10) Why did he create a space force to fight aliens or maybe the two witnesses that will tell the world who he is.
    Do you worship him? Did you fall for the lies?
    Did you take his mark?
    I hope and pray your answer is no to all of these.
    Its time people look to JESUS and away from the lies of this world. The end is not coming its here.
    The mark is the 💉and many that professed to belong to JESUS sold their souls for lies.
