‘Tsaa Buga’ is what the Tsaatan nomads call their reindeer in the Northwest Taiga of Mongolia, bordering Siberia. The Tsaatan are proud of these magnificent beasts that provide them with milk, skin for clothes and antlers for carving art and medicine, help in transport and, very rarely, serve as meat.
