Hello, It's fascinating. Thanks for the good job. I have question concerning the current Turkish minority in Bulgaria. Could we say that this people (or at least part of them) are the native (not assimilated among the Slavs) people of Asparuh? I was born in Bulgaria and due to the political confrontation at that time have always been looking to find an answer to this question who we are? After the change of the names of all Turkish speaking people in the country with Christian ones in 1989 my father have made a research to find the origin of our family. We went seven generations back but could not found any sign which can prove the officially claimed "Christian origin". It's difficult to believe that everything from the so called proto Bulgarians had disappeared most probably when they met the Ottomans and have heard the common language of this people were easily convinced to accept the Islam as well. Looking for you comments. Thanks, Mustafa

Dear Engin, thank you for your good words. Sorry, I do not think that I can help you with "Shamanist beliefs", because Shamanism does not exist, it is simply a derogatory label on the same level as "Papism", "Mohameddanism", "Rabbinism" etc. applied by people who know everything, or at least the absolute truth in the area of teology, in respect to others holding "wrong" views. The basic tenets of the Tengrianism, and the ritual functions of shamans and kams, are cited here in the Turkicworld pages. The people who still follow these beliefs hold their content as much true as do those who follow "Papism" etc., and naturally there are geographical and cultural differences between their beliefs, frequently studied in the contexts of ethnographic research, but always from a somewhat superior stance. An Internet search may bring you to textbooks on comparative religions available in your location, but I doubt if they would contain specific material about the beliefs of spacifically Turkic people. Thanks, Norm

Hello! I'm interested in knowing about different Shamanist believes of some Turkic peoples, differences and common points comparing to others. And also Turkic Peoples from other religions like Christian, Jewish, Buddhist. Could anybody help me? By the way, congratulations for that nice and very professional web page about Turkic People. I think itís very useful to learn about this ancient world which is not connected and is lost in their relationships between them in time. Thanks a lot. Best regards. Engin

This site has in-depth information which seems to be highly accurate but unfortunately is largely unkown. This site does justice the the land of Turan and the Turkic world as well as it's people, well done to whomever made it. But it would be great if the site got a re-vamp and was designed far more clearly that would to the proffessional content justice. regards...

Bu siteyi hazirlayan muhterem , burada neden Turkce yok? Neden sadece Ingilizce ve Rusca konusanlara hitap ediyor? Anlayamadim , ama guzel bir calisma.
