The article examines the problem of the influence of school on the transformation of the Family Institution of Indigenous Peoples of the Far East in the 1920s and 1930s on the basis of unpublished documents and for the first time introduced into scientific circulation (the State Archives of the Russian Federation (SARF), the Russian State Archives of Economics (RSAE), the State Archives of the Khabarovsk Territory (SAKhT)). Particular attention is paid to the issue of reforming the national alphabets, in which the important role was played by the Institute of the North Peoples, the emphasis is emphasized on the transition from the Latin alphabet to the Cyrillic one, and all positive and negative results of this process are shown. The conclusion is drawn about the important consequences of these measures for the further development of Aboriginal culture and life, including for the national family. The article was supported by the grant from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Khabarovsk Territory.
