"In 1921, the Bolsheviks established the Tuvan’s People’s Republic. Nomadic life and native spirituality were forbidden in Tuva, which is located close to Mongolia in the center of Asia, after the Soviet Union formally annexed the republic in 1944. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tyvans are enjoying a cultural renaissance. The name of the republic has since changed to Tyva and the region has seen a revival of the shamanism and Buddhism once practiced by much of the population. Here, Tyvans ride horses and gather for a wrestling festival close to Lake Tere Khol.”
