These were the Turki who taught the Europeans new metallurgical technologies: to smeltiron and make goods thereof. By the example of Altai newcomers European menfolk refusedto wear skirts and took to pants…Dozens of world nations used to speak and keep on speaking Turkic language - fromYakutia to Western Europe. And even in Africa - in Tunisia and Morocco - there are somesettlements where one can hear Turkic speech.The Turkish are the most numerous and well-known - there are over 50 million of them.Turkey plays an important part in modern world, everybody knows it, which cannot be said of tofalars (there are several hundreds of them). Very few have heard of a nation which could beaccommodated within a couple of villages. They live in wild Siberian taiga having theslightest notion of their neighbors. But at the same time it is quiet possible that tofalars, whohave led a lonesome life for centuries and have rarely contacted with other nations, are thekeepers of the most ancient Turkic language and the purest Turkic blood. Only in the mostnecessary cases.Turkic world is great… There are nations who have forgotten native language and historylong ago but retained the appearance of their forefathers and their customs: Ukrainians,Bulgarians, Serbs, Croats, noticeable part of the French, Germans, Russians, Englishmen…And there are those who haven't forgotten a single thing and clearly remember even distant pages of our history - they keep it in their songs, legends and narratives. To tell the truth,neighborhood with other nations affected their appearance: Kazakhs, Kirghizes, Tuvinians…Their faces have little in common with their forefathers' faces, although their inner life isextraordinarily rich in priceless treasures of the past.How can such "variety" be estimated? Is it good or evil? Misfortune or happiness?.. Noneof world languages has as much dialects as Turkic does: people have one blood but their speech differs. Why?This question cannot be answered easily. Though everything is kept within a natural courseof events and has its explanation.Unfortunately, countries and nations history has been always written for politics sake. Andquiet often the Truth had to step back before an undisguised fabrication under political pressure. Perhaps that's because true Turkic history hasn't been written yet; there are onlyseparate fragments thereof. And an ocean of lie around… But there is no nation withoutHistory. And no history without Nation!
We are the Kipchaks!
There is a well-known statement of Goebbels expressing the essence of politics: bereave thenation of its history - and in a generation it will turn into a crowd and in another generation itcan be easily ruled as a herd… A familiar situation, isn't it? It seems we've turned into slaveslong ago and didn't notice that!Our scientists have been learning C.P.S.U. history and didn't know the history of Turkicnation. They simply haven't investigated it in Russia - it was prohibited.Of course there will be some objections - those objections being right! - they say a lot has been written. That's true. But can one believe in everything that's been written? One Turkidoesn't recognize another, he can't remember his forefathers. Small splinter is posed as anentire independent nation. They invent whatever they like. Kumyk, for instance, writes in histhesis that Kumyks are not the descendants of great steppe inhabitants but Laks andDargintses from Kumuh settlement which were made Turkic. Shame on such a "science".As a rule the Turki are humiliated by the Turki themselves! And we shouldn't blameanyone. I'm indignant not because I'm Kumyk but because my forefathers were the Kipchaks,
