The upper reaches of the Yenisei River area is connected with the basin ecological environment is highly consistent, maintain a captive elk hunting in the forest area and the economy: small scale cattle and horses in animal husbandry, hunting high forest area and grassland areas of economic form, and the variety of grassland animal husbandry in the dry mountain slope grasslands of southern and eastern of, containing five or more of the shepherd. Most importantly, each kind of shape can be any one of the countries in Central Asia, they have different language, culture and politics.

For those who still keep the nomadic economy and the approximate Tuva before the reform of the economic formation of society people, this is particularly important. P39-40
