The Knowledge of Nomads
Date: 30 Jul 2021
In this 2-day community event, Little Amal will meet the Yörüks – an ancient nomadic people. Throughout her welcome, the Yörüks will teach Amal about their nomadic traditions, and she will learn that sometimes home is where you are.
Crossing the mountains with the Yörüks, Amal will stop in Karaman for the night before continuing towards Antalya.
The Yörüks migrate long distances, mostly by foot. In summer they travel to higher ground where the Taurus mountains offer rich pasture for their goats and sheep, and in winter the Yörüks come down to graze their herds along the coastal plains and valleys, where the climate is mild.
