The Yakuts' forefathers populated their land within the X-XVI centuries. In 1632, in the year of foundation of the town of Yakutsk, entered Yakutia voluntary into the Russian state. Now is the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) the constituent territory of the Russian Federation. Paying tribute to their past, regard the Yakuts the mammoth, an extinct mammal of the elephant family, as a symbol of their severe land. Mammoths provided the ancient man with material for shelter, clothing, food, utensils and works of art (skin, bone and wool), what helped him to survive on the endless space of permafrost.
