FOLLOWING THE NOMADS
FOLLOWING THE NOMADS
The exhibition, in which photographer Mustafa Gümüş framed the photographs of Sarıkeçi Yörüks (Nomads), will open on 14 July 2021 at the Travno Cultural Center in Zagreb.
The main subject of the exhibition, The Sarikechili, is a Yoruk-Turkmen Oba(Nomad Group) belonging to the Kayi Tribe of the Bozok branch of the Oghuz people. This nomad group, who came to Anatolia from Central Asia, live in many parts of our country today. However, some of them still live in the Taurus Mountains thanks to the favorable climate of Mersin, Karaman and Konya. The people of Sarıkeçi, who descend to the coastal part of Mersin's Gülnar district and its surroundings during the winter months, set out to migrate to the highlands of Konya and Karaman when the spring arrives. A large part of the Sarıkeçili tribe, which established their homeland after an average 45-day journey of approximately 500 kilometers, has been settled. The exhibition will remain open until August 31, 2021. Exhibition entries will be free.
