TOP 10 Indigenous Tribes of the Arctic

The Komi are indigenous peoples in northeastern Russia. The name “Komi” comes from the word “kam” meaning “large river” referring to the fact that they live around the basins of the Vychegda, Pechora and Kama rivers. They are the native inhabitants of the Komi Republic which was established in 1992. There are many lakes and rivers in the region, therefore the waterways were the main routes of transportation and communication.
