The article examines the controversial issues in ethnography of Ob-Ugrian peoples in the context of twentieth-century developments – both those related to historical ethnography and those having to do with the present-day state of Ob-Ugrians and other peoples of the North. Special attention is paid to the contributions made by the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Russian Academy of Sciences, and other research centers to the study of these issues. The article draws on the author’s sixty-yearlong experience of work among the Khanty and the Mansi people.
