Culture and traditions

Over the centuries Izhma culture has been formed, which has absorbed elements of labor and everyday traditions, folk art, the spiritual and ideological heritage of the Komi, the Russians, and the Nenets. The memory of the past is preserved in Izhma families, where they remember their genealogies, cherish old clothes, dishware, and photographs. The memory of ancestors is an integral part of the Izhma culture. This can be seen even in such a basic thing as the name of a person: when calling a person by name, the Izvatas, like all Komi, first pronounce the names of their ancestors, and at the end the person’s own name. For example, Parsha Nina – Nina Parfenovna; Kosta Mitruk Sash – Alexander, son of Mitrofan Konstantinovich.
