Karakunuz: An Early Settlement of the Chinese Muslims in Russia
Preview not available

Abstract

Some Chinese Muslims (who became known later as Dungans) migrated to Russia from China in 1877-1878 and 1881-1884. The third group of the first migration settled in Karakunuz (present-day Masanchin). Two Russians who visited the site in 1897 wrote a detailed description of life in the settlement. It touches upon their food, clothing, farming methods, social customs, dialect, and other things, and concludes with translations of fifteen riddles, two proverbs, and five anecdotes. Their work is translated here for the first time into English, followed by a brief overview of how the life-style of the inhabitants of the same village has changed in recent years.
