Belarusian migrants in Bratsk district: life, traditions, architecture

Reporter: Abolina L.A.

At the beginning of the XX century in the territory of the modern Bratsk district of Irkutsk region a number of villages has been founded by migrants from Belarus, Ukraine and Pskov province. On the new area migrants have introduced some features of traditional culture and economic activity which differed from their prototypes which have developed at the local Russian old settler population. The analysis of oral stories of descendants of the Belarusian migrants collected during the ethnographic expedition of 2017 year and also visual survey of their inhabited and economic constructions indicates that their national dwelling has kept a number of the features introduced from places of an exit. In comparison with immovable objects of traditional material culture its such manifestations as food and clothes were quicker subject to transformations.

Keywords: Belarusians, peasant resettlements, ethnocultural identity, subsistence, material culture, national dwelling.
