Kazakh Persona

Kazakh Persona

According to historians, "Kazakh, Kazaklyq" are ancient Turkic words. Their meaning is "free, liberated, independent". If the nomadic tribes quit another nation and went the Great Steppe to live independently, then they were considered to be "Kazakhs". Thus, the ancestors of today's Kazakhs did not want to quit their traditional nomadic lifestyle in the changing world, and moved back to the Great Steppe. Even the Kazakh leaders, the descendants of Genghis Khan or Kazakh Tore (royalty), were also different comparing to other Tores. Their power was limited, and their privileges were insignificant. This is because the traditions of the Great Steppe’s military democracy were still strong.
