Nowadays, a daily world of the isolated ethnolocal group of the Yessey Yakuts living in the North of the Krasnoyarsk Territory beyond the Arctic Circle near the Lake Yessey far from the majority of the Sakha-Yakuts is of great interest. It is noted that, due to historical and political circumstances, at the initial stage of national-territorial zoning with the indigenous peoples of the North in the late 1920’s of the 20th century, the Soviet state bodies classified the historical territories of the Yessey Yakuts to the newly created Evenk national district dividing the Yessey Yakuts from the majority of the Yakut ethnos
