North Pole Travel and Global Warming, What it Means to You

This is a picture of a Antonov An-26 at the Khatanga Siberia Airport. 

I'm very sorry that I don't have a picture of the An-24 that brought us from Norilsk to Khatanga but it looked very much like this aircraft.   These are impressive aircraft.  The An-26 was loaded with a very large plastic fuel tank which filled about two thirds of the cargo bay.  We opened the back ramp and filled the plane with boxes of food, fuel, tents, poles, personal luggage and a lot more.  We filled the front of the plane with carry on luggage, more bags of equipment and where there was any room left, we stuck the people. 

The following pages are about Khatanga, the people there and our expedition members.  Please read on to see some great stories and photos.  Then return to the North Pole 2002 Home page   to go to the next section of this exhibit.


It is common knowledge that about 90 percent of about 6,000 languages existing in the world are expected to be replaced by dominant languages by the end of the 21st century.

Siberia is one of the regions with the majority of indigenous population is presently not marked by the language diversity anymore, though generally, they spoke various unique languages formerly.   At least some 30 languages in the region of Siberia can be seen as endangered.

Click Here are some of the Languages of Siberia with some interesting links to information about them.  The links go to Endangered Languages of Indigenous Peoples of Siberia.
