Ob-Ugric peoples

The Ob-Ugric peoples, the Khanty and the Mansi, have their own administrative region called Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug – Yugra, which was established in 1930. Its capital city is Khanty-Mansiysk. The Khanty and the Mansi are a small minority in their titular okrug.

According to the 2010 census, there are around 31,000 Khanty and 12,000 Mansi. The most recent statistics show there are 8,000 and 1,000 native speakers respectively. The statistics suggest an increase in the number of Khanty and Mansi since the 1989 census. Siberian indigenous peoples are granted a variety of hunting and fishing rights and other benefits, which may result in people registering as Khanty and Mansi.

There is an information package (From Finland to Siberia) in Finnish, Khanty and Mansi aimed particularly at schools.
