Dhaka Tribe and Reindeer

Dhaka Tribe and Reindeer

“The Dhaka tribe are the last reindeer herders left on Earth. The once thriving reindeer population is now estimated to 600 reindeer. ┬áThese people use reindeers to hunt wild boar and elk but also drink their milk and make reindeer cheese. Their relationships with reindeer is spectacular.”

In Northern Mongolia, there exists a sacred alliance between people, ancestor spirits and reindeer. The connection allows them to feel at home in nature and maintain their culture despite the growing influence of the outside world.
