Drawing on field research conducted during the five trips to the Selkup of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region, the author explores the traditional sepulchral constructions and identifies seven types thereof. She examines each type by providing a thorough semantic description and charting both geographic and ethnic distribution areas.
