The Nenets’ diet

The Nenets’ diet is based on reindeer meat and fish. Every three or four days, they kill a reindeer by strangling it. They then remove the entrails, drink the warm blood and eat the uncooked liver, kidneys and heart. The rest of the meat, easily preserved in the cold, is left on a sledge, along with fish caught in ice holes, to be consumed when necessary.
