Mongolian Kazakh Hunters

The falconry is a badge of identity for Kazakhs, the largest ethnic minority in Mongolia. Inhabiting on the wild and rugged territory, Kazakhs are proud of maintaining their unique culture, religion and way of life. The knowledge of falconry is kept in the family and passed from generation to generation.
