The Predicament of Chukotka's Indigenous Movement: Post-Soviet Activism in the Russian Far North
The 'indigenous rights movement' of the Chukotka people in the Russian Far North demands that Chukotka people should enjoy a privileged cultural or political space, rather than being dominated by Russian Nationalism. Patty Gray explores the reasons why this movement has been unsuccessful, and argues that the movement as a continuation of soviet tendencies rather than something comparable to Native Rights movements in the Russian Far North. A further difficulty is that the movement's leaders are urban and educated, while the population they represent is largely rural and poorly educated.
