KYRGYZ PEOPLE

According to recent historical findings, Kyrgyz history dates back to 201 BC. The early Kyrgyz lived in the upper Yenisey River valley, central Siberia (see Yenisei Kirghiz for details). Chinese and Muslim sources of the 7th–12th centuries AD describe the Kyrgyz as red-haired with fair complexion and green (blue) eyes. First appearing in Chinese records of the Grand Historian as Gekun or Jiankun, and later as part of the Tiele tribes, they were once under the rule of Göktürks and Uyghurs. The descent of the Kyrgyz from the autochthonous Siberian population is confirmed on the other hand by the recent genetic studies (The Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y-chromosome diversity).

Remarkably, 63% of the modern Kyrgyz men share Haplogroup R1a1 (Y-DNA) with Tajiks (64%), Ukrainians (54%), Poles (56%) and even Icelanders (25%). Haplogroup R1a1 (Y-DNA) is believed to be a marker of the Proto-Indo-European language speakers. Kyrgyz genesis legend tells about an ancestor and father of all Kyrgyzes Kyzyl Taigan (Red Dog). A daughter of the khan was in the habit to take long walks in a company of 40 maidens-servants. Once, on return home after her usual walk, the Princess saw that her native aul was ravaged by an enemy. In the aul they found only one alive creature, a red dog. The princess and her 40 maids become mothers, in a company with only one male attraction, a red dog. By the number of matrons, the posterity of 40 maidens, kyrk-kyz, began to be called Kyrgyz people. The cult of the Heavenly Dog was widespread between the tribes west and east of the ancient China.

The Kyrgyz state reached its greatest expansion after defeating the Uyghur Khaganate in 840 AD. Then Kyrgyz quickly moved as far as as the Tian Shan range and maintained their dominance over this territory for about 200 years. In the 12th century, however, the Kyrgyz domination had shrunk to the Altay Range and the Sayan Mountains as a result of the rising Mongol expansion. With the rise of the Mongol Empire in the 13th century, the Kyrgyz migrated south.

Various Turkic peoples ruled them until 1685, when they came under the control of the Oirats (Dzungars).

KYRGYZ CULTURE AND NATIONAL TRADITIONS

The coloring of Kyrgyz national cloth, carpets, and embroideries is saturated and cheerful. It is composed of strong, contrasting colors, where warm colors (red and light brown) prevail. In the past, masters used natural dyes. Ornamentation has its origin in the Bronze age, but gradually has been was improved and expanded. Its elements were taken from the flora and fauna which surrounded the nomadic peoples. The main motif of Kyrgyz ornamentation was “kochkor” – stylized ram’s horns. Sinuous lines with rhythmically placed curls are named “kyal” (dream or fantasy). It is also reminiscent of the branches of a flourishing tree. The main motif of Kyrgyz ornamentation was “kochkor” – stylized ram’s horns. Sinuous lines with rhythmically placed curls are named “kyal” (dream or fantasy). It is also reminiscent of the branches of a flourishing tree.

The Yurta is a small dwelling, decorated with hand-made felt carpets and strips. Kyrgyz tribes, occupied with nomadic cattle-breeding in the mountains, worked out the best type of transportable dwelling that is easily dismantled, moved on pack animals and again set up. The Yurta consists of wooden pieces and is covered by felts of different types. The felt cover is connected to its frame by narrow woven and leather strips. The cover of the tunduk is moveable and the hole for smoke is easily opened in the morning and  closed at night with help of long cords.
Yurta can be set up in about 1 hour. The right side of the yurta considers the women’s part. Here, colored bags with felt application, clothing, headdresses, jewelry, needle work of mistresses and pottery were kept. Food storage separate with a screen from the ornamented mat. The left side was for men, where the best clothing and headdresses of the men were hung, and closer to the entrance hung a harness. The place opposite of entrance considers an honorary position. On this part of the wall was a row of trunks where rarely used patterned carpets were laid.
The word “shyrdak” comes from the word “shyryk” which means quilting – one of the main processes in making shyrdak, which makes it very firm and solid. The quilting repeats the ornament design thus making a pattern inside the pattern. In order to evaluate a shyrdak, experts turn the shyrdak on the other side to see the quality of quilting work since the quilting is done throughout all layers. The design of felt carpets usually contains the figures and shapes of some animals, or a part of their bodies such as deer horns, ibex horns, eagle, raven clutch, dog tails … and so on. There always has been an element of esoteric “knowledge passing” through the ornament that was kind of encoded message for a person for whom a carpet was made.
Ala Kiyiz is felt carpets with patterns rolled into them. Patterns are very unique and vary from one part of Kyrgyzstan to another. There are some traditional patterns such as “bugu muiuz” (deer’s horn), “kiyal” (dream) which are present in almost every Ala Kiyiz. Ala Kiyiz was made almost by every woman both as a decoration for their dwellings and as a gift for their relatives – mainly as a wedding gift. Women used to keep new carpets folded on their decorated wood trunks (the “sundyk”) until there was a wedding, anniversary of some other appropriate event. It is most likely that Ala Kiyiz appeared from a plain kiyiz that is used as a cover for the yurts. Plain kiyiz do not contain any pattern; and are usually white, grey or black depending on the natural color of the sheep’s wool. Ala Kiyiz are easier to make and less attractive than Shyrdaks, thus they are used as a practical item rather decoration. Ala Kiyiz is still given to a bride as a part of dowry.
The Kalpak, properly called the “Ak Kalpak” (white Kalpak), is a hat usually made from four panels of white felt with traditional patterns stitched into them as decoration. It is worn by males of all ages especially in rural Kyrgyzstan, and is a symbol of the nation. (One writer has even written that “what the baseball cap is to the Americans, the Kalpak is to the Kyrgyz”.) The most common form of Kalpak is thought to resemble the shape of Khan Tengri. Even if it looks a little strange to western eyes, this headgear is also a practical item of clothing keeping the head warm in winter and protecting from the heat in the summer. The kalpak is the “holiest” of national clothing for the Kyrgyz. It has “mysteries” that many say they can feel when they wear it. This ancient style of hat seems to connect the man wearing it with the history of his fathers and the destiny of his people.
Chapan is a long outerwear that is sewed on wadding or a camel hair. The lining is made of a cotton print, and the outside is covered with silk velvet, woolen cloth or velvet. There were chapans for women and men in the old days, but today only the elder people wear it.
Headdress is an indispensable attribute of a married woman. It sits tight on the head and completely covers the hair. Headdress is decorated with ornaments made by various types of seams with colored threads. A turban of white material called “elechek” is always wearing over the hat. The Kyrgyz women were wearing elechek in summer and winter. It was absolutely unaccepted to go outside without it.
Traditional women’s clothing consists of a long white shirt that was served both as a dress and as long trousers, which were worn under the dress. The vest was worn over a dress.
Long-distance races are an ancient and widespread sport. «At-chabysh» races were held on different occasions, usually in connection with some holiday or commemorative festival. The winner (or its owner) was given some jewelry and cattle as a reward. Horses of various breeds and ages took part in the races. Each trainer had his own methods of preparing the racer for the competition.
The distance was 53 versus (1 versta – 1,066 km), later on 100 kilometers. Moreover the riders were quite often boys of 10-13 years of age, sometimes riding without a saddle. According to current rules, only horses three years old and older of any breed are admitted to the races. The riders «minimal age must be not less than 13. The distance ranges from 4 to 50 kilometers.
Kok-boru or Ulak-tartysh: wrestling on Horseback for a Goat’s Carcass-kok-boru or ulak tartysh mean «grey wolf». Apparently, the original game came historically developed in antiquity when herds of cattle grazed in the steppes and mountains all year round, exposed to possible attacks by wolves. Having no firearms, the shepherds could not deal with wolves. Brave djigits (horse riders) chased after the wolves until the beasts of prey fell, then they began beating them with sticks and lashes, trying to snatch them away from each other.
Later on when the people led a more settled life «kok-boru» was replaced by ulak-tartysh. There are two teams, consisting of an equal number of riders. The playing ground is 300 meters long and 150 meters wide. The opposite sides of this area marked with flags, present symbolically «the gates». In the center of the playing ground a carcass of a goat, weighing on an average of 30-40 kilograms, is placed. One game is 15 minutes long. The objective of the game is to seize the goat’s carcass and deliver it into the gates of the contesting team. The players are allowed to pick up the carcass from any place within the limits of the field, take it from their rivals, pass or fling it over to the partners, carry it pressed to the horse’s side or suspended between the horse’s legs.
Kyz-Kuumai – Chasing After the Bride – the man has to catch up the girl and kiss her. Otherwise she could beat him with a whip. One of the most interesting horse games is kyz kuumai (chasing after the bride). In olden days this game was a part of the wedding ritual. According to the rules the bride was given the best racer and she was entitled to a head start on her horse that began the race. The bridegroom set out in pursuit to catch up with her, in this way proving his love and right to marry her.
Being at a disadvantage with the slower horse the bridegroom sometimes failed to catch up with up with his fiancée. Yet, although she might beat him with her Kamchi (or horse-whip) she did not reject him and the wedding would be held all the same.
  It’s the very beautiful game: they both wear bright national clothes, they rush on horses as wind and he tries to reach her with warlike clamors…At present this traditional folk game is usually held during holidays for example in the green meadows of high mountain pastures, (jailoo) or on racecourses.
Wrestling on Horseback

Kyrgyzstan have many special traditions. One is Ulak-tartysh – a game combining hoursback riding, wrestling and american football – with a 30kg goat’s carcass being the ball.

KYRGYZ CUISINE

Kyrgyz cuisine refers to the cuisine of the Kyrgyz, who comprise a majority of the population of Kyrgyzstan. The cuisine is similar in many respects to that of their neighbors, particularly Kazakh cuisine.

Traditional Kyrgyz food revolves around mutton, beef and horse meat, as well as various dairy products. The preparation techniques and major ingredients have been strongly influenced by the nation’s historically nomadic way of life. Thus, many cooking techniques are conducive to the long-term preservation of food. Mutton and beef is the favorite meat, although in modern times many Kyrgyz are unable to afford it regularly.

Kyrgyzstan is home to many different nationalities and their various cuisines. In larger cities, such as Bishkek, Osh, Jalal-Abad, and Karakol, various national and international cuisines can be found. Non-Kyrgyz cuisines that are particularly common and popular in Kyrgyzstan include Uyghur cuisine, Dungan cuisine, Uzbek cuisine, and Russian cuisine, representing the largest minorities in the country.

Beshbarmak: for Kyrgyz people beshbarmak is not only a dish, it is a whole ceremony with own traditions and customs. The sheep is usually killed, cut in to pieces and boiled in iron fleshpot till bullion is ready for drinking and ribs meat for sharing between participants of table. This dish consists of home-made noodle with shortcut boiled meat which usually is eaten with hands (beshbarmak means five fingers in kyrgyz).
Kuurdak: small pieces fried lamb or veal with onion and spices are served with greens on the big plate.
Lagman is a rich spicy stew with chopped meat, vegetables and spices, poured over long hand-made noodles. The noodles can be eaten with a fork and the gravy with a spoon. Lagman is served in individual bowls.
Manty: steam done pies from pastry likely fist size with stuffing from lamb (or sometimes pumpkins), onion and spices, usually eaten with the fingers. A word of warning- watch out for the hot, liquid fat that can come squirting out from them. Also, sometimes the meat can be fatty, or gristle. Manty is usually served on individual plates (3-5 pieces) and could be dressed with sour cream.
Plov: rice mixed with boiled, or fried meat, onions and carrots (and sometimes other ingredients such as raisins), all cooked in a semi-hemispherical metal bowl called a kazan over a fire. Plov is a favorite dish in the South and is served to honored guests – the meal is not considered over until it has been served.
Shashlyk or Kebabs (barbeque) – meat cubes on skewers cooked over the skewers of burning twigs. Mutton is the meat usually used, but it is possible to find beef, chicken, liver and even pork shashlyk. The meat may simply be freshly sliced or may have been marinated overnight. Be warned, if the meat is mutton, then almost certainly one of the pieces on the skewer will be pure fat … the dripping fat onto the burning embers is thought to enhance the taste). Shashlyk is usually served with a sprinkling of sprinkling onion, vinegar and lepeshki.
Shorpo is a hot oily broth with chunks of meat, potatoes and carrots. It is could be seasoned with greens and is served in individual bowls and eaten with a spoon. Large chunks of meat on the bones can be eaten with hands.
Boorsok – pieces of dough, deep fried in boiling oil – is a traditional table “decoration”. They are produced in large quantities and spread over the dastorkon or table at every major celebration.
Chuchuk – fat salami made from horseflesh.

SVEIN OLAF OLSEN

Hello,

My name is Svein Olaf Olsen. I travelled to Kyrgyzstan during easter a few years ago. I booked the trip online – wich turned out to be a very good decision! The Kuldanbaev family organized the trip for me. The whole journey was a fantastisc experience: with days of mountain biking, hiking and horse riding. I wasn’t experienced with horses prior to the trip, but was familiar with hiking.

The activities took place in 2000-3000 altitude – a fantastic adventure! At night we stayed in local guest houses, private homes, hotels or even in yurts. Kyrgyzstan was exciting to explore – with a majestetic landscape and it’s friendly people. The culture is old and proud, with an exceptional relationship with the nature.

During the trip, I got a lot of new friends. With decades behind me in the tourism industry, I feel entitled to recomend Kyrgyzstan as your next travel destination. I want a lot of people to experience this wonderful country! It’s hospitality, safety and breathtaking landscape – to beautiful to be captured in pictures. That’s why I created this website with my Kyrgyz friends. They want to do everything to give you the adventure I had – where you get memories for life.
