About The University
The first people settled on the territory of modern Yakutia in remote ages. Archaeologists of the Republic have determined that ancient people began settling here by the early Paleolithic age. The first archaeological monuments appeared here during this time, they date back to the period between 300 thousand and 3 million years ago.

The largest group among the indigenous peoples of the republic, giving the latter its name, is the Yakut (self-name Sakha). They take up a distinctive position characterized by their language, traditional culture and physical appearance. Although the Yakut language belongs to the Turkic languages, it comprises a high percentage of 25.5 per cent of words of Mongolian origin and nearly 4 per cent of words of Tungus-Manchurian origin.

Presumably the Turkic tribes settled on the territory of modern Yakutia in a number of migration waves, the latest happened to take place in the 14-15 centuries. It is generally assumed that during the period of its formation an ethnic group adjusts to a certain landscape. Accordingly, Yakuts have formed as a nationality in the basin of the middle reaches of the river Lena , i.e. on the territory of central Yakutia.

Forefathers of the Yakut were able to preserve and develop the structure of their economy based on horse-breeding and stock-raising in the extreme conditions of the North, they introduced handicraft industry (blacksmithing, jewellery, pottery etc.) and construction of permanent housing to the region. By the beginning of the 17th century Yakut clans resided in the basins of the Indigirka and Yana rivers, promoting the culture of livestock-raising and herd horse-breeding into the arctic regions of Yakutia.

Yakut legends describe the 17th century as the epoch of Tygyn and tygynids. An academician A.P. Okladnikov called him a Yakutian czar. As Okladnikov wrote in the first volume of the History of Yakutia , the figure of Tygyn, the wise old man, the lord and the powerful warrior, the chosen one, as his congeners pictured him, merged with the majestic images of epic heroes and gods during his lifetime. Finally Tygyn's death was on its own connected with the most crucial moment in the life of the Yakut people, the arrival of the Russians, and was depicted with the magnificence of the epic drama.
