285Did anyone notice Wikipedia in Komi?
Admittedly, not too big and no overload of contributors.
Mari, Moksha, Erzya, Karel, and Udmurt Wikipedias do not seem to exist.

286And isn't it kind of them to provide explanations in English & Hungarian, of all languages??? ;-)
It seems to try and exist in Udmurt, too.
I am not expecting too much though... :-(
I had not noticed it before, so thanks for telling!
What I had noticed were Wikipedias in unexpected Indonesian local languages like Javanese and Sundanese.

287I was actually looking for Tuvan, and did not find any (which is surprising given that Tuva has the highest percentage of native population of all Russian republics). But then I at least could call the kids and show them Mongol, Naxuatl, and Navajo.
I will have a look at the Udmurt one, thanks.
There were also some (or one) in Sami languages, when I was browsing the list.

291Just found a link (Laszlo, this is for you)
Heninen.net - Republic of Karelia
(in English, Russian, and Finnish). Not sure whether all three parts are equivalent: apparently, they are looking for volunteers to translate some documents.

293"Those Setu-pages are great! And the idea of Setu Kingdom festival is really fun. A brilliant idea, I would like to visit that."
I wrote that almost three years ago. And now I announce to everyone who might be interested: The Setu Kingdom Festival is 4th of August in Meremäe village in south-eastern Estonia. And finally I will be there. I have already booked accomodation, now I just have to book the ferry and busses.

296For those interested: there are more great festivals in Estonia. Võru folklore festival: http://www.werro.ee/folkloor/index.php?lng=en and Viljadi folk: http://www.folk.ee/2007/about.php to mention two biggest ones. Võru is more classical, but Viljandi is definitely more popular and fun because of it's atmosphere where whole small town has bee infected with festival fever :))

298I have recently met someone ready to come along on a trip to Russia - so I might just make it to the FU republics this summer... nothing firm yet, but the Mordvin, Mari, Udmurt, and Komi republics, as well as the Nenets and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Regions (yes, again!) are all on the planning board... though trying to squeeze them all into a 2 months time-frame will mean a rushed trip - if it does happen to start with!
