In her footprints
For 2000 years, Kazakh men have been hunting with golden eagles, many of them been living in the Altai mountains of western Mongolia.
The traditions and knowledge have been passed on through the generations, always from father to son. But recently the fifteen year old girl Aisholpan Nurgaiv changed the circumstances and shocked the eagle hunting society radically when she competed in, and won, the world’s biggest eagle hunting festival.
This project follows thirteen year Bor Dameli Shokan, one of a few young girls that are following in Aisholpans footsteps. Right now, Bor is training her own eagle to reach her dreams, hoping that one day she will be accepted as a true eagle hunter.
