This is hairy Sirtya

 

A tiny beautiful race, white-haired and white-eyed, shunning daylight to live underground in the Siberian tundra – this sounds like the stuff of legends. And yet, every story has a drop of truth. As the Nenets culture of the Yamal Peninsula have always said, they were not the first to inhabit the Arctic. When they arrived, another people were already living there. The Nenets call them Sikhirtya.
