Kyrgyz Culture

Culture

The Kyrgyz are traditionally Nomads came from Sibiria and then moved to the south until they reached the territory of today Kyrgyzstan. Their life was always connected with cattle, especially sheep and horses. Cows and goats were also raised, 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, and there is a very famous Kyrgyz saying: "If you would have only one day to live, you should spend at least half of it in the saddle."

Almost all of traditional horse-back riding games often presented with festivals or shows, where the moves are mostly derived from every-day situations of former generations. And the perfection of the Kyrgyz in the saddle is astonishing.

Children start riding a horse as soon as they learn walking, and soon the boys will help adults' in caring for the sheep.

On the other hand, girls begin to learn the traditional handicraft being very young. Their very beautiful carpets that are made with months- or year-lasting work are very valuable and famous. The most popular carpets are Shyrdak and Ala-Kiyiz, which are both made from sheep's wool and decorated with colored national patterns, derived from the nature.

Very important though, those carpets are not the best-known product of Kyrgyz sheep's felt. The symbol of the Kyrgyz life and household is the Yurt. The dwelling prepared of felt can be found everywhere on the pastures. Even in modern Kyrgyzstan it is still considered to be part of every-day life, even in cities: you find street-cafes everywhere, serving traditional meals, and also families in big towns still build the yurt on the most important holidays. For example, the births of a child, a marriage or burial ceremonies are the events, where yurt is a required thing. And the most significantly illustrated importance of the yurt is depicted as its part on the flag of the Republic. It is red and in the centre symbolically shows the Tyunduk - the central part of the yurts roof. Typically it is a circle made of wood and crossed with few sticks.

The yurt is a multifunctional, mobile dwelling, which consist of a wooden frame and the felt covers. The whole thing is fixed with short leather-ribbons (instead of nails) and ropes made of animals' hair. Inside of the yurt is fancy 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 is also the bed sheets that are spread at nighttime on the floor and offer a soft and warm place for the night, but during daytime they are kept fastened and covered with a beautiful cloth, forming the back part of the place for the most honored guest.

In the centre of yurt, you can find a little stove, which is used for cooking and warming the room. It is absolutely compulsory also in summer, especially if there is bad weather in those high-altitude regions. Left side to the entrance of the yurt belongs to man where he keeps weapon, utilities for hunting, fishing, horse-back riding and everything for the sheep. The woman's part is on the right of the entrance - there are the kitchen utilities, and everything needed for handicraft and suing and it/s forbidden part for men to enter.
