Several other groups reside within the region of Kazakhstan like the Ukrainians, Uzbeks, Germans, Chechens, and Uyghurs - belonging to the Russian authority. Among the minority cluster, the Russian Germans, Poles, Romanians, Ukrainians and Russian political opponents were expelled to the region of Kazakhstan during the reign of Stalin.
Kazakh women are very beautiful due to a great combination of Europeans and Asians. They follow old Kazakh traditions. Kazakh national traditions root deeply in centuries.The most significant ones are dedicated to such memorable events as birth of a child, marriage, or connected to celebrating the most favorable holidays (e.g. Nauryz). In addition to being tradition-rich, these holidays are always accompanied with holding national games. Many of the games are interesting due to their ancient roots and enchanting sight. However here we are going to focus on the most exciting ones. :
Kyz Kuu (Catch The Girl) - according to historians, since the days of the Sak tribes, one of the conditions for traditional marriage demanded that the suitor caught up with his bride in a horse race. During a festival the young suitor and a young woman ride to a field. At a signal the woman takes of at a full speed and the young suitor pursuits her and tries to catch up. The girl must be a brave and an excellent rider, otherwise the young suitor will catch her thus binding to marry him! If the suitor fails to catch up with her and kiss her before she crosses an earlier arranged landmark he has to turn around and swiftly ride back. If the young woman catches up with the suitor she gives a real hard lash on his back with a horsewhip. The game is peculiar spectacle that draws crowds!
Wedding - Bride was the first to enter the yurt. She had to cross the threshold with her right foot and kick the left side of the yurta with the same foot. Groom followed, doing the same. A similar ritual existed among many Turkic and Persian-speaking peoples in Central Asia: bride and groom tried to step on each other's feet after entering the yurta. The be first in stepping on her/his foot was meant to win a dominating role at home.
Kazakhs believe that the name of a person foretells and determines his/her future. Children were named by the names of their famous fathers and ancestors, with the names like Zhanibek, Abylai, Abai, Ybrai, or Shokan. There are also wishing names like Mynzhasar (live a thousand years), Zhuzbai ( a hundred years), and Toksanbai (ninety years) indicating the wish for a long and wealthy life. But there are also so-called «unpleasant» names like Kushikbai (puppy) or Ayubai (bear). This tradition has an explanation to it. In old times, when the medical knowledge was limited and life conditions were tough, babies death rate was quite high. Nomadic people tended to blame the evil forces and spirits for it. The idea was to give funny or strange names to babies (people would laugh when hearing them) as protection from evil spirits or evil people. An evil person or spirit would be distracted by the name of the child rather that pay attention to the child itself. This was common in families where babies had not survived. For this reason babies were also named Tursyn (may he live) or Toktasyn (may he stay). Families that had no boys gave the name to a girl with a certain wishful meaning: Ultuar, Ulbolsyn (may she be followed by a boy)...Learn more
There were no tsars among Kazakhs but there were khans who were the equal to tsars. According to the Muslim lows even if a person was wise and clever enough to be monarch or tsar, that could not be allowed if the man wasn’t yet forty. For Kazakhs this age patsha jasy was likened to the development of a sharp sword – it took that long to be polished or to become respectable and clever enough to become a khan, sultan or the holder of some other honorable position like of a poet or a hero. Hunting with the berkut (golden eagle) is the common form of hunting among the Kazakhs. From generation to generation hunters hand down their secrets of rearing and training berkuts. This mighty bird is capable of killing a fox or a wolf in a fierce struggle. Watching the scene of struggle between the attacking eagle and the prey arouses a genuine feeling of excitement!
Kokpar is a team game. Up to 50 participants can compete for gaining a small goat carcass in the exausting multiple-hour riding. Upon a command the contestants rush to pick up the carcass of a young goat placed 50-60 paces away from them. The game does not end by just picking the carcass since the rest of the contestants struggle to take it away from one another. The clashes on the field at times involve up to 20-30 men. The contest may last for a few hours and the last person to get hold of the carcass either by strength or subtle means is the winner.
Audaryspak - the wrestle between mounted riders is one of the most tense, spectacular and favorite events of Kazakh folk contests. The rider that is able to topple his opponent from his horse wins. Participation in this contest reveals not only physical strength and determination to win but also the ability to remain in the saddle in the very extreme conditions.
In many Kazakh families children died young. The couples whose children died young didn’t know what to do. Nobody understood the reasons for their death. Of course, the death of a child was very sad and gloomy. How might a family protect their dear creature from death? There was a traditional way to do that. They should conduct a "buying" ceremony. For this purpose an old woman was required. The lady would approach the house where the family lives at night. She shouts loudly: «I found the thieves who have stolen my baby! Give me my child back!». The old woman wears a torn dress and looks like a witch. In her hands she carries a stick with an eagle’s and owl’s claws. The couple pretends to be scared and puts the baby into her hands. The old woman takes the baby to her house, but the mother continues to nurse the baby periodically during the day-time. After sometime the parents of the «stolen» baby put on some old clothes and appear as beggars in front of the old lady's house. They carry their kettle, a harp of wood and three or four sheeps to the old woman’s house in order to buy their baby back. The old woman would meet them at the door and give them flat bread. The «beggars» would refuse to take it and ask to buy their baby back. In the Koran the scriptures implore everyone to pity beggars, to be kind to them and not refuse genuine requests. This is why the couple has come to the old woman in rags, as the old woman cannot refuse their request. She returns the baby head-first for when a baby is delivered from his/her mothers uterus, the head also appears first. Kazakhs believed that a human born head-first would die standing, which was highly valued. The old woman gives the baby head-forward, meaning she hopes the baby would live a long life. Meanwhile, the baby’s parents would leave everything they brought: sheep, kettle and a harp of wood. That was one of the strategies to protect children from dieing.
