Running barefoot in winter

In this true story, a woman tells of an activity Udihe children used to perform to amuse themselves: running barefoot in winter. She recalls a particular journey to her aunt’s house with her brothers and explains how they warmed their feet up using the sun’s light on their way there.

Recording: Udihe videos were recorded by Maria Tolskaya, some with participation of Elena Perekhvalskaya, in 2006 in the village Krasnyy Yar and in 2011 in the village Agzu.
