The Sakha Republic is located in the North-East of Siberia. This is the land of mountains, taiga (forest) and tundra. There are more than 700,000 rivers. The largest river in Yakutia is the Lena. It is 10-15 kilometres wide, 4,400 kilometres long, and 15-20 metres deep. It is the tenth-longest river in the world, and the second-largest in Russia after the Yenisei river. Yhyakh is the most popular traditional holiday of the Yakut people. Held on June of 22nd, the longest day of the year. The oldest man opens the ceremony. He is accompanied by seven virgin girls and nine virgin boys and starts the ritual by sprinkling milk on the ground, feeding the fire. He prays to the Ai-ii spirit “God” for the well-being of the people who depend on them and asks the spirit to bless all the people gathered. Afterwards, people sing and dance ohuokhai, play national games, eat national dishes, drink kymys. Ohuokhai is a national dance in which three forms of art: dancing, singing and poetry are combined together. The dancers dance in a circle, arm in arm, hand in hand and with the left foot put forward, making rhythmical graceful movements with their bodies, legs, feet and arms in the “sunrise” direction. The ohuokhai appeared a long time ago. References
