also called  Ostyak Samoyed 

      an indigenous Arctic people (Arctic) who traditionally resided in central Russia between the Ob (Ob River) and the Yenisey (Yenisey River) rivers. They numbered more than 4,000 in the Russian census of 2002.

      The Selkup language, divided into several dialects, is one of the few surviving languages of the Southern Samoyedic group of Uralic languages. Selkup has been written in both Latin and Cyrillic (Cyrillic alphabet) scripts, but little is known of its actual use. The people were once seminomadic fishers and hunters, but, since Russian domination, they have settled and many cultural features have weakened or disappeared.
