6 endangered peoples of the world that still retain their traditions and foundations


There are about 4 thousand different nations and peoples in the world. Each of them has their own way of life and traditions. Some are thriving, while others are on the brink of extinction.

In the north of Russia, in Siberia, a small people live — the Chulyms. Their

The main occupation of people is agriculture and cattle breeding. The Chulym residents use the resulting products for their own needs and sell them in regional centers.

The people have preserved their traditional folklore and craft to this day. Chulym residents make products from wood and birch bark. Most of the representatives of the people live in the village of Pasechnoye, Krasnoyarsk Territory. There are only two streets here and there is no infrastructure.

A hunter-gatherer tribe living in northern Tanzania. The population does not exceed 1300 people. For 40 thousand years, the Hadza have not been assimilated by other peoples and still speak their own language.

The people are engaged in gathering and cattle breeding, the main weapons are bow and arrows. The tribal council consists of only men. Hadza still do not use the achievements of modern medicine, unsanitary conditions and lack of drugs are commonplace for the tribe.

Although the Hadza are protected by international organizations, they are close to extinction. The Tanzanian government does not want to put up with the fact that a backward tribe lives on the country’s territory, which does not want to adopt the achievements of civilization, and the authorities are slowly taking the land from the people.

Representatives of this tribe live in Myanmar and Malaysia. For 2 thousand years, these people led a nomadic lifestyle, moving to a settled way only in the XX century. But until now, part of the people live in isolation from the outside world.

Badui live in the mountainous regions of Indonesia, in the west of Java. Their number is 10 thousand people. At the same time, the people are almost completely cut off from the outside world. Only a small part can communicate with foreigners, the rest live apart from civilization.

The tribe lives in communities and strictly follows the prescribed rules. And if the prohibition of murder and theft is understandable, then

Today, the Badui are disappearing as a separate people due to the move to cities, the pressure of the main people of Indonesia, the Sund and the influence of Islam.

In general, there are hundreds of peoples in the world that may disappear in the next 50-100 years. They are assimilated by other large nations, adopting their language and culture.
