This chapter describes the native language elite, the media personnel. It analyzes ethnographic examples from workplaces and homes that reveal how native-language journalists work within value systems that are sometimes at odds with one another. It illustrates how media personnel strive toward the professionalism and hyperinstitutionalization of journalism within the majority of society. The chapter also explains the role of media personnel as a native-language journalist that grants a narrower elite status within the minority that draws on rural “prestige” and noninstitutionalization. It also examines the practice of minority-language journalism in Buryatia as a central way in which particular stances toward Buryat belonging are institutionalized.

Keywords:   native-language elite, native-language journalists, media personnel, rural prestige, noninstitutionalization, Buryatia, journalism
