“In fact, it is a journey inward of the traveler and reflection in the information space. Having a huge territory in the Great Steppe, we do not have enough documentary archives. If there are archives, they are located outside our country, that is, in archives of other countries. Everything that we know was conveyed to us orally, through poetry or through the oral work of akyns-improvisers.”
