The article is devoted to measures to implement the resolution of the Sibrevkom on the mass labor mobilization of the Yakuts to the Bodaibo gold mines during the Civil War. The activity of the local government on the call of the labor soldiers, as well as the response of the Yakuts in the form of repurchase from the call and desertion, is disclosed. The support of the Yakut population from the Yakutgubrevkom headed by P. A. Oyunsky, who tried to cancel the order on mobilization for rear work. The role of labor mobilization in the awakening of national identity and the consolidation of the Yakut nation, as well as in the emergence of rebellion in Yakutia in 1921–1922, is revealed. An excursion was made into the First World War period, when an attempt was made to mobilize the Yakuts for gold mining.
