People lived in Siberia are also interesting. Today fewer than 10% of Siberia’s tribal peoples live a nomadic or semi nomadic life. Some of these peoples are nomadic reindeer herders, living in the tundra; others, who live in the forest tundra or taiga, rely on a mixture of reindeer herding and hunting and gathering, and often live in settlements. The languages the different tribes speak are from a range of linguistic families. Scientists have suspected for a long time that Native Americans are closely related to the peoples of Altai. The theory of the Altai peoples migrating from Siberia across Chukotka and Alaska, down to the Tierra del Fuego at the tip of South America, appeared almost a century ago.
