Nenets
Samoyed Sled Dog

Samoyed sledge dogs raised by the Nenets of Siberia

Nenets is a very obscure language spoken by a people known as Samoyeds who live in Siberia.

There are only twenty thousand or so native speakers so you might not have heard of the language but you have probably seen one of their most famous ‘exports’, the beautiful and good natured Samoyed sledge dogs.

It’s also from Nenets that the the word ‘Parka’ is derived which is hardly surprising given temperatures in the village of Oymyakon, Eastern Siberia, regularly fall to an average of -50oC and have been known to go as low as -70oC!
