Only 44 Dukha families remain, appx. 200- 400 people. They ride, breed, milk, and live off reindeer - populations dropped to appx 600 since the '70s (estimated then 2000) Since the democratization of Mongolia, no gov. programs are in place to replenish reindeer herds, direly endangering the Dukha way of life. Much of the Dukha income today comes from tourists who buy their crafts and to ride their domesticated reindeer. The name "tsaatan" means "reindeer herder" as in "tsaa bug" (reindeer).

A Tsaatan [Dukha] woman ties down two reindeer in a fenced-off area. To protect them from wolves, the Tsaatan usually tie down their reindeer to notched stakes or round them up in [corrals] at night. During the day they are released into the mountains to browse for fresh leaves, lichen and mushrooms in the summer and lichen buried under the snow in winter.
