(p.90) Chapter 4 Examining the Role of UNESCO and Intangible Cultural Heritage
Storytelling in Siberia

University of Illinois Press

Research into the key factors in olonkho revitalization reveals a remarkable consistency among Sakha voices, pointing toward the pivotal role of UNESCO’s Masterpiece program and the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). For this reason, chapter 4 focuses exclusively on UNESCO and its ICH initiatives. Topics include a description of the Masterpiece proclamation and its absorption into other ICH programs, a clarification of the term “safeguarding,” a comparison between UNESCO’s desired outcomes and Yakutia’s Action Plan for olonkho revitalization, and a discussion of Yakutia’s funding for that Action Plan in the face of budgetary crises.
