Kulzira and a Male Family Member
Kulzira was our cook. She understood our needs for a balanced diet that is contrary to the Mongolian belief: “Meat is for men and grass for animals."
Several generations of families customarily live together in a nomadic camp known as khot ail ("group of yurts"). The camp, generally consisting of two to seven households, serves as a way of pooling labor for herding and hunting, and has numerous social and ritual functions.
