In June-July 2014, Aigine CRC is conducting field research on sacred sites of Chui province. The main goal of the research is to verify and update our database of sacred sites. Today, we have completed our research in three districts of Chui province – Kemin, Jaiyl and Panfilov. Main informants of our research are the local residents and based on their information our data base is formed.
In the course of our field studies, the following trends are becoming peculiar to Chui province – the longer members of a certain family, clan or community live on the same territory, the more sacred sites appear in that territory.
Field studies are planned to be completed by the end of summer 2014.
