    Abstract

    Territorial reorganization of indigenous society in Russia's North during the Soviet period included the disruption of indigenous land tenure mechanisms, sedentarization, and forced relocation. These historical processes now serve as a backdrop for current efforts toward land reform, one alleged goal of which is to increase the potential for indigenous self‐government. This article explores the effects of territorial reorganization on the scope (geographical and functional) of indigenous petitions for land allotments, their gendered nature, and the problems of legitimate ownership rights. 1 map, 1 table, 26 references.
