28.05.2014 Yakut Summer Holiday in Khabarovsk

The Yakut Summer Holiday, called Ysyakh, was celebrated in Khabarovsk on May, 24. The representatives of different  ethnic diasporas living in Khabarovsky Krai and Sakha Republic participated in the event.

The holiday dedicated to the revival and renewal of the nature, fertility and beginning of a new year usually takes place in the end of June, but it was held a bit earlier in Khabarovsk.

The celebrations took place in Tourist Complex  “Voronezh”. It began with Algys,  a  traditional ritual that aims to appeal to supreme deities, spirits of fire and earth with the request of prosperity, cattle breeding and abundance. During the holiday visitors had a chance to get acquainted with the Yakut arts, music and cuisine.
