Oral Tradition in Nomadic Culture

The Türks, Huns, and Mongols, who created huge nomadic powers from Khingan to the Mediterranean Sea, developed more than ten writing systems, some of which have not yet been deciphered. That is, in the cities they wrote and translated, in the monasteries they wrote and translated. But the nomads who grazed cattle and roamed in the great steppe did not have books.

It’s hard to carry them with you.

It was no accident that in the Great Steppe they used to say: “A wandering fool is better than a sage sitting still.” He visited everywhere, talked with many. The education was not systemic, but from the heart.
