Tundra Wonder Mums

Tundra is their office, Far North is their employer

Pavla Nikolaevna is a ‘chumworker’, a housewife in the tundra. Together with her husband, they continue their family ideal of driving reindeer herds in the far north. Instead of a regular flat this Russian family prefer a chum, a reindeer fur-covered hut. Even in winter, when the temperature outside falls to -34° C, they move the chum several times a week, following the ancient herding tradition. While the men are watching the herds, the women work at the chum making their snow dwelling comfortable. The family with seven children has a flat in a nearby city, but they keep returning to the land of the reindeer.
Watch why tundra is not letting the out.
