  1. Kazakhs

    The Kazakhs are a Turkic people of Eastern Europe and the northern parts of Central Asia. Kazakh identity is of medieval origin and was strongly shaped by the foundation of the Kazakh Khanate between 1456 and 1465, when several tribes under the rule of the sultans Janybek and Kerey departed from the Khanate of Abu'l-Khayr Khan. Most Kazakhs are nondenominational Muslims. Kazakhs are descendants of the Turkic tribes – Argyns, Khazars, Qarluqs; and of the Wusuns, Kipchaks and Cumans. Kazakhs were one of the most severely affected nations by the Soviet famine of 1932–33. 37% of the total Kazakh population died in 1932-33.
