Buyan-Olgii is nestled in Mongolia’s Altai Mountains bordering China, Kazakhstan, and Russia. It is home to the Kazakh people who fled the Russian Empire’s army over 200 years ago from their native Kazakhstan, and it is where they have remained isolated, holding onto their sacred traditions and culture. Folkins’ lecture will focus on their rich cultural heritage, unique customs and dress.
