Kazakh - Mongolia
Kazakh | Khavtsalijn Am, Altan Tsogts Country, Bayan-Ölgii Provence,| Mongolia, 2017
The Kazakhs are the largest ethnic minority group in Mongolia. Almost 90 percent of them live in the north-western part of the country, Bayan-Ölgii. The Mongolian Kazakhs travelled through Russia to the Mongolian Altai Mountains living as semi-nomads, moving several times a year according to the season. The diaspora is by no means a homogenous group: there are many distinct communities with different traditions.
