Tuva Writes 'People's Dictation'

'People's Dictation' was launched in Tuva on October 11, the day of the 63th anniversary of Tuva's joining Soviet Union. The mass action devoted to the Russian Language Year was initiated by school-teachers in the Sukpak village. Tuvan teachers are troubled by the lowing level of the Russian language knowledge specially in the deep Tuvan provinces where there are no Russians. Monoliguistic surrounding does not urge young Tuvans to get to know Russian properly. Schools in Kyzyl are overcrowded with the influx of the schoolchilden from Tuvan villages. Their parents know that with scarce knowledge of the Russian language their children won't be able to enter higher educational institutions both inside Tuva and outside.

Tuva had already requested extra financing in the Russian Government. Due to the resignation of former Russian PM Mikhail Fradkov, the problem remains unsolved, Nedelin stated.

Russia close-up: Shamans and Lamas Buddy Buddy in Tyva

Spirituality runs deep in the remote Russian Republic of Tyva. While Shamanism is the unofficial religion there, Lamaism, or Tibetan Buddhism, is the official one. But most people don’t have to choose between the two, since shamans and lamas don’t have a grudge against each other.

Tuva is located in Southern Siberia, in one of the most isolated regions of Russia. Its people’s native religion is Shamanism – a belief in spirits inhabiting everything around them.

Going to a shaman is as common for Tuvans as going to a doctor. But nowadays Tuvan shamans don’t live in woods. They drive cars, live in normal houses and even pay taxes as private entrepreneurs.
