In my semi-new project…… I will check out the battles between Nenets and the Russian colonizing power

One of the big battles between the Russian oppressors and the indigenous peoples in Siberia took place in 1746.

It is of considerable interest to note that the natives, who had resisted the men of Novgorod for 400 years, stood up against Muscovite Russia and the Empire which soon succeeded it for another 250 years. It was not until 1746 that the garrison, aided by all Russians capable of bearing arms, and by some Nentsy, succeeded in crushing the Nentsy so thoroughly that all later visitors to the area describe them as an entirely peaceable people.
