THERE AREN’T MANY “LOST” tribes any more — the realities of the modern world means that most formerly nomadic people have settled down into cities, and that virtually everyone, for good or for bad, has been brought into the global fold. The Dukha tribe is one of the rare exceptions. The Dukha are a Tuvan-Turkic tribe that lives on the border of Mongolia and Russia, and they are best known as reindeer herders. But their connection with animals extends far beyond reindeer.

S+F thanks for posting this. Incredible pictures and it's amazing how they show how the tribes live their daily lives with the wildlife. I think they are probably the luckiest people alive I'm actually jealous of how they live. Probably healthier and happier than most of us living in our towns and cities
What I'd give to live like this
A cohesive plan for the Dukhas' health care which can be used by the Dukha people themselves, and by local, national and international health care givers;
Diminished eye, teeth and other health problems connected to vitamin deficiency (underway and ongoing since 2004)
Diminished heart disease, muscle weakness and other endemic health issues among the Dukha, connected to hypertension and anemia
