  • Anatoly Sleptsov North Eastern Federal University of Yakutsk, Russia

Abstract

This paper analyzes the peculiarities of formation of Russian regional legislation relating to Indigenous small-numbered peoples of the Russian North, Siberia, and Far East. The experience of legal regulation concerning the state ethnological expertise (ethnological expert reviews) of the places of traditional residence and economic activity of Indigenous peoples is considered. The paper is part of a special collection of brief discussion papers presented at the 2014 Walleye Seminar, held in Northern Saskatchewan, which explored consultation and engagement with northern communities and stakeholders in resource development.
