Miguel Angel is travelling to remote and isolate places of Siberia and The Arctic since 2006.
In 2011 he was spending the Tsagaan Sar - the Mongolian Lunar New Year - in Khatgal village, living with local people in a Mongolian Ger, when he came up with the idea of publishing a book about Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic and Siberia.
