Soul of the Bürkitshi (Eagle Hunters)
In Mongolia, young women are overcoming centuries of male-dominated tradition to master the ancient and noble art of hunting with eagles. For those who truly live as Bürkitshi (eagle hunters), the future doesn’t faze them. They still hunt in the way of their ancestors, migrate through the rugged terrain and share stories over cups of fermented mare’s milk and baursak (fried dough balls). Only now, these stories are also being told by brave new huntresses.
