Volodia Tankai, rensdyrhyrde og leder. Han drog til forfædrenes verden i efteråret 2013, og i Achaivayam afventer de stadig hans genfødsel. Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
I foråret 2012 til koralisering i landsbyens private hjord er formålet at adskille hunnerne fra hannerne, så hunnerne kan føde sine kalve i fred. Flokken bliver således opdelt i to under hele kælvingsperioden og den første tid efter. På billedet ses hvordan også børn og unge tager del i arbejdet, det er 'learning by doing’. Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård 
Når du står og betragter en flok rensdyr springe igennem sneen undrer det ikke, at rensdyrhyrderne fortæller at rensdyr har evnen til at trække dårligdom ud af ens sind og erstatte det med velvilje.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Jeg er i gang med at puste luft igennem tyktarmen. Mine hænder er iskolde, for varmen bliver kun i tarmene ganske kort tid på sådan en vinterdag. Tarmene bruges til rensdyrpølser eller man steger dem som de er over bål. Nogle af tarmene gemmes til kælvingsperioden hvor ingen rensdyr slagtes og kød derfor er en mangelvare.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Under forårets fødselsritual ‘Kilvej’ fodres de hellige ildbrædder Gihr-Gihr, som rensdyrenes ejer og fysisk manifestation af forfædrene. De fodres med fedt fra familiens rensdyr. Hele ritualet udføres når de første rensdyr begynder at kælve, for at rensdyrflokken må vokse sig stor og stærk. Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård
Alting er besjælet, også tundraen og alle verdens retninger. Her fodrer pigen Masha tundraens og retningernes ånd med rensdyrblod-suppe. Når ofringerne er gjort deles suppen mellem deltagerne.  Foto: Jeanette Lykkegård

Forfædrene i dig

Hvem er jeg? Og hvordan er min personlighed opstået? Vi har ofte svært ved at forstå vores sammensatte karaktertræk og søger svar hos coaches, psykologer og psykoterapeuter som aldrig før. Antropolog Jeanette Lykkegård har levet på den sibiriske tundra blandt tjuktjerne, der har en interessant forståelse af livets cyklus og af den sammensatte…

Zackenberg Research Station celebrates its 20th anniversary

In 1995, visionary researchers established the Zackenberg Research Station in North-East Greenland to monitor climate change in the area. Today – twenty years later – the climate change is precisely described in a unique data set.
