Welcome, this is the official site of the Krasnoyarsk National and Cultural Autonomy of the Chuvash People: • Russian and • English versions.
Chuvash people live not only in Chuvashiya Republic but and in other regions of Russia. In the Krasnoyarsk region the Chuvash people live on the banks of the Enisei river, mainly in the agricultural areas. In many areas of Krasnoyarsk region there are populated areas of compact living of the Chuvash people, where the original traditions and distinctive culture of the of the Chuvash people are well preserved.
According to the census of population in 1989 more than 24 thousand of Chuvash people live in Krasnoyarsk region. They live almost in all areas and towns of the Krasnoyarsk region (the 6-th place in the size of population among the citizens of Krasnoyarsk region). It is not observed that Chuvash people go away from Krasnoyarsk region. The number of the Chuvash population is increasing properly by the natural increment.
The Chuvash people in Krasnoyarsk region began to unite to save the Chuvash traditions, the Chuvash culture, the Chuvash language at the end of the 80-s years and at the beginning of 90-s years of the last century. The meetings of the Chuvash people were held in Krasnoyarsk, Sharypovo, Bolshemurtinsk, Kazachinsk, Beryozovka and other cities, towns and regions. It was come to a decision to set up the Chuvash social and cultural associations. Now days Krasnoyarsk National and Cultural Autonomy of the Chuvash People unites two autonomies the regional autonomy and the autonomy of the city of Krasnoyarsk, 18 representatives in the areas, cities and towns of the compact living of the Chuvash people.
