Svan Home..The people still live in a society run by the clan system.  Elders meet and settle disputes in an old, Svan home.  The last extended family using a house like this left the region in 1940.  As many as 40 people lived in this small house, surrounded by their animals and warmed by a central fire that had no chimney.  Holes around the periphery were for cows to stick their heads through to eat.
