Conquest period yurt camp will be the main attraction of this year's Kurultaj celebration

Sunday, May 25, 2014

As part of this year's Kurultaj celebration a giant nomadic yurt camp will be built in Bugac introducing the lifestyle of the steppe nomads at the time of the Conquest period.

We know from contemporary historians that the Hungarian population even a couple of centuries after the Conquest (ten-eleventh-century) lived primarily in yurts. The yurt (tent, "sátor" in Hungarian - Satir in Turkish, but we don't know exactly what word our ancestors used to designate the yurt) was the living structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.

Constructing a yurt required high degree of craftsmanship, much higher than for instance, building a log cabin or a mud house, which our ancestors also built occasionally.

Besides the nomadic yurt camp a tenth-century military camp will also be part of this year's Kurultaj event, which include authentic artifacts from the Conquest period.

One of the biggest surprises of 2014 Kurultaj will be the Hun section of the camp, which introduces the lifestyle of one of the most feared warrior tribes of the migration period. In the center of the camp the world's largest wooden yurt will be erected, which will serve as an exhibition hall during the event displaying artifacts from the Conquest period.

Elizabeth Holgrave - Germanic Heathenism & Preserving European Heritage

Elizabeth Holgrave is an independent researcher of pre-Christian European Spiritual Traditions. She has studied Judeo-Christian religion, Kabbalah, Traditional Witchcraft and the ancestral traditions and pre-Christian spiritual practices of the Celtic and Germanic peoples in a life-long search for her spiritual roots. Her search has led her through the depths of Christianity, Wicca, and Judaism until finally finding her spiritual home in Germanic Heathenism and the traditions of her ancestors. We’ll discuss the traditions and beliefs of Germanic Heathenism. An important aspect of Heathenism is veneration of ancestors, a tradition that has been lost to most Europeans. Elizabeth shares various sources for pagan folklore, fairytales, mythology and tradition. We’ll talk about returning to our ancient pre-Christian practices and discuss why it’s important. As multiculturalism seeks to devour western countries and European heritage, we’ll speak about how to recover and integrate ancient traditions into our modern world in order to ground and unite Europeans both culturally and spiritually. We also discuss the unnatural politically correct ideas of no gender, no race and one shared global culture for humanity. Later, Elizabeth explains how many Europeans revert to Christianity when times get hard, looking for power and strength, yet this is playing right into the elite’s hands.
