The Second Naadym Day Finished with the Shamanic Ceremony

This evening a shamanic ceremony was performed by the shamen from the Tos Deer (Nine Heavens) Society, with Ai-Churek (Moon Heart) leading. The performance was specially held on the 9th day of new moon, and was devoted to a "moon of yellow leaf", wishing prosperity and well-being to the Tuvan people. The shamen also pleaded for rain, as the dry summer could leave the cattle without food in the winter time.

Lack of English Teachers in the Village Schools

The lack of English teachers in the villiage schools was discussed in a government meeting. The absence of the English language in those schools curriculums make it practically impossible for the country graduates to get higher education. In order to improve the situation it was decided that starting this year, a zero-group at the Tuvan State University will be set up for those who will study in the English department at the University. After they graduate they will have to return to their native villiages to teach English at schools.
