This chapter clarifies why the Buryat cultural leaders pursue ethnonational visibility within the multicultural “Friendship of the Peoples.” It talks about the native-language media that have been a special site of social action in Asian Russia in order to indigenize state-driven modernizing projects and build a Soviet Buryat public. It also explains the native–language media as a way to reclaim local and regional power through a minority elite and further linguistic and cultural revitalization projects. This chapter examines the role of native-language media in evoking a minority-language public alongside media that circulate other local, national, and international scales. It also focuses on mid-level, regional scales of belonging between the hyperlocal and the federation as a corrective to studies of media and globalization.

Keywords:   Buryat, ethnonational visibility, native-language media, social action, Asian Russia, Soviet Buryat public, minority elite
