Secrets of Desht-i-Kipchak Nomads
We want to tell you about the nomads who lived in the Desht-i-Kipchak steppe, how and what the nomadic commune was based on, their principles and survival strategies, how and why they managed to remain one of the most powerful, formidable neighbors for settled empires for millennia, and, despite this, lost their power and strength.

We also want to describe what the role of women in a nomadic society was and why you can find similar genes with settled neighbors in the nomads’ DNA, and the almost complete absence of nomadic genes in settled peoples. We will also analyze the issue of gender in the steppe and steppe feminism.
