China's Kazakh Minority Preserve Culture Through Eagle Hunting in Western China
QINGHE, XINJIANG, CHINA - JANUARY 30: Steam from the breath of horses in the cold is seen as Chinese Kazakh eagle hunters wait before a local competition on January 30, 2015 in the mountains of Qinghe County, Xinjiang, northwestern China. The festival, organised by the local hunting community, is part of an effort to promote and grow traditional hunting practices for new generations in the mountainous region of western China that borders Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia. The training and handling of the large birds of prey follows a strict set of ancient rules that Kazakh eagle hunters are preserving for future generations. (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)
