Ныппылюк’ин Принц / Nyppylyuk’in Prints — in Chukchi languange.

Chukchi is a Chukotko–Kamchatkan language spoken by the Chukchi people in the easternmost extremity of Siberia, mainly in Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.

Chukchi, Koryak, Kerek, Alutor, and Itelmen form the Chukotko-Kamchatkan language family. There are many cultural similarities between the Chukchis and Koryaks, including economies based on reindeer herding. Both peoples refer to themselves by the endonym Luorawetlat (ԓыгъоравэтԓьат; singular Luorawetlan / ԓыгъоравэтԓьан), meaning the real people. All of these peoples and other unrelated minorities in and around Kamchatka are known collectively as Kamchadals.

In the UNESCO Red Book, the language is on the list of endangered languages.
