Unique Tribes of The World: The Chukchi People
The Chukchi people, also commonly spelt as the Chukchee people, are an indigenous group of people belonging to a tribe that occupy the Chukchi Peninsula, the shores of the Chukchi Sea and the Bering Sea region of the Arctic Ocean, a plot of land that falls within the Russian Federation. Some reposts also claimed that the Chukchis are people from the north easternmost part of Siberia, the Chukotskiy. The Chucki people speak the Chukchi language. Historically, The Chukchi originated from the people living around the Okhotsk Sea.
The Chukchi people are divided into two different groups of people, The Maritime Chukchi and The Reindeer Chukchi. The Reindeer-herding Chukchi were nomadic and lived in settlements of two or three families. The traditional Chukchi form of housing was the yaranga, a conical or rounded reindeer-hide tent with a box-shaped inner sleeping chamber made of fur that was large enough for several people.
Both the maritime and reindeer-herding Chukchi made their clothing from the skins of young reindeer and seals. Chukchi women traditionally wear a knee-length coverall made from reindeer or seal hide and trimmed with fox, wolverine, wolf, or dog fur also known as the Kerker. In addition to the kerker, The Chukchi women also wear robe-like dresses of fawn skins while the men wear loose shirts and trousers made of the same materials. Both the men and women wear high boots and leather undergarments. Children's clothing consisted of a one-piece fur cover-all with a flap between the legs to allow the moss that served as a diaper to be easily changed.
Although the Chukchi people are divided into two groups, one for those who live on land (Reindeer Chukchi) and one for those who live by the sea (Maritime Chukchi), they all still belong to the same collective tribe. In a similar vein, Twelf-X offers collections designed expressly for the sea (Ocean 1908 Deep Wave) and the air (Sky 1914 Auto Flyer), each fulfilling a different purpose. When combined, the broad range of Twelf-X watches and the Chukchi tribe stand for one thing in particular: living life to the fullest by embracing differences in order to accomplish a single shared goal.
