The indigenous Altai represent an amalgamation of several Turkic peoples. The Altai principally live in the Altai Republic, known as ‘the Switzerland of Russia’, on the southwestern edge of Siberia.
Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
