Uyghur Folk Tale (Chin Tömür Batur)


Ay Xenim Süzük Chiray

Cranes fly in formation in the sky, but I wish there was moon light.
If my love was not by my side in the moon light, how can I be happy?
It reminds me of you, because you are as beautiful as the moon.
In the moon light, I'll play the ravap all night.
I peeked through your window, saw you combing your hair but you never came out. What happened, my love? My beautiful love, how can I endure this pain of love.?

Kazan - Women's Ksenievskaya Gymnasium

"Tartarian Men" 1673

The term "Tatar" or "Tartar" is used in several ways. This usage refers to "Tartarians" as the Chinese that the Dutch were actively trading with during the 1600's.

These are not Kazan Tatars.

The multiple use of the term Tatar serves to confuse everyone, including many Tatars. Tatars are not Chinese Mongol, or Russian. Tatars are Turkic Muslims, with populations all around Russia, with sizable numbers in Moscow, St. Petersburg and of course within Tatarstan.

Three Tatars 1907

"Tartarian Women" 1673


Now these are not the Kazan Tatars of the Volga Basin. These are Dutch images from 1673 during trade with China. The text is especially interesting as these "Tartarians" seem to abhor Moslems and Turks, first time we're seeing anything like this.
