The ritual of feeding the fire is one of the ancient traditions of the Yakut people.
This ritual is holding in daily life before going to fishing, hunting or on a journey, expecting to receive blessing of Bayanai, the grand spirit of the forest. The ceremony of feeding the fire is especially beautiful during the yakut holidays, for example during the national holiday «Ysyakh».

In Yakutia fire is usually feed by pancakes, a horsehair, «kumis» — traditional drink from mare's milk.
