Kyrgyz Culture

Culture

The Kyrgyz people have a very long history and always have been known as nomads living in Siberia who came down to Central Asia and forming a new country. Their main occupation was cattle breeding and livestock; in particular they had sheep and horses. Cows and goats were also a good deal of their everyday sustenance, as well as donkeys for the smallest of the family to ride them.  And of course horse-back riding is the most important part of Kyrgyz culture, which can be supported by a very famous Kyrgyz saying: "If you have only one day to live, you should spend at least half of it in the saddle."

 You can enjoy the traditional horse-back riding games in festivals or shows held each year mainly in summer time. You can find it astonishing to see the nomads' skillfulness on riding a horse which they acquired through living experience.

Children start riding a horse very early when they learn how to walk, and soon the boys will help adults in caring for the sheep.

On the other hand, girls begin acquiring handicraft skills from their mothers and grandmothers; for example they learn how to sew, knit and weave. Their beautiful carpets made within months or even years are very valuable and very popular not only among locals but also for foreign visitors. The most popular carpets are called Shyrdak and Ala-Kiyiz, both made from sheep's wool and decorated with beautiful national patterns coming out naturally by master-women.

However, these carpets are not the most popular products produced by the Kyrgyz women. The symbol of the Kyrgyz life and household is the Yurt, in Kyrgyz known as "Boz Ui". This felt nomadic dwelling is found everywhere in the pastures. Even in modern life of Kyrgyzstani it is still considered to be part of every-day life, even in cities: you can see street-cafes everywhere, serving national food, and also families in big towns still put up the yurt during different important events. For example, the births of a child, a marriage or even burial ceremonies are the events, where yurt is required. And the most significantly illustrated importance of the yurt is depicted as the main symbol featuring on the flag of the country. It is red and in the center symbolically illustrates the Tyunduk - up-crown of the yurt's roof. Typically it is a circle made of wood crossed with few sticks.

The yurt is a multifunctional, portable nomadic dwelling made of a wooden frame and the felt covers. The whole structure is fixed with short leather-ribbons (replacing the nails) and ropes made of animals' skin. Inside part of the yurt is beautifully decorated; there are carpets on the walls and on the floor, and the "Djuk" at the end of the yurt, opposite to the entrance. It serves as bed spread at nighttime on the floor for making a soft and warm place for an overnight stay, but during daytime they are kept fastened and covered with a beautifully decorated blanket, making the back part of the yurt for the most respected guest.

In the center of yurt, there is a little stove used for cooking and warming the yurt. They needed it even in the summer time, particularly when the weather is bad which quite a frequent occasion is in high mountainous areas. Left side to the entrance belongs to man to keep his weapon, utilities for hunting, fishing, horse-back riding and other stuff. The woman's part is on the right of the entrance where they keep the kitchen utilities, and everything needed for handicraft.
