Nenets live in -40C (-40F) in tents, or "Yurts", in the Arctic tundra outside the city of Naryan-Mar in the Russian Nenets Autonomous Region.
Their main livelihood is reindeers -- they sell the meat to sausage factories and the antlers to China for use as traditional medicine including aphrodisiac.
