Instead of going away to school, some Evenk children of remote Siberia have the school brought to them!

French anthropologist Alexandra Lavrillier is fighting alongside the Evenk people of south-eastern Siberia to save their heritage. School on the Move travels with her to the taiga where this nomadic people live. Here she has helped set up a mobile school to give Evenk children the chance to receive a modern education without having to sacrifice their ancestral traditions. Lessons, for example, include learning to use a computer and lassoing and riding a reindeer.

Instead of being sent away to a boarding school at age 6, young Evenk students can stay with their families, making it possible to conserve and even revive their language and culture.
