Аннотация: This article analyzes the traditional economy of the indigenous peoples of Central Siberia based on the example of the Selkups living in the Turukhansky District of the Krasnoyarsk Krai, in the village of Farkovo. This research is based on the participant observation method which allows researchers to study the modern state of the Selkups' traditional economy via direct interaction with the Selkup people. The research includes analysis of such activities as traditional crafts, food, clothing, traditional medicine, religion, customs, rituals, folklore, original artworks, language, decorative and applied arts, etc. The research assists in the illustration of the particular features of the Selkups' traditional economy, which consist of the coexistence of original forms of lifestyle and certain types of activities undergoing changes over the course of time. Their traditional activities that still remain in practice include fishing, traditional food, traditional medicine, certain customs and rituals, holidays, and their native language. Some changes in the implementation of the Selkups' traditional forms of economy are attributable to hunting, folklore (the existence of original works of art), and decorative and applied arts. The article provides a detailed description of each of the specified activities carried out by the Selkups. This description is based on results obtained from interviews with representatives of this ethnos. Furthermore, this article points out the reasons why some of the Selkups' traditional forms of economy, such as reindeer breeding, making traditional clothing, and developing folklore activities, in their original form are disappearing. Today, these disappeared forms of the Selkups' traditional activities remain only in the memory of certain representatives of the ethnos.
