Two New Circassian Organizations Take Up Cudgels for that Nation’s History, Language and Toponymy

Paul Goble

Staunton, Sept. 10 – Two new Circassian organizations set up last week in Kabardino-Balkaria plan to take up the cudgels for the defense of Circassian history, the survival and growth of the Circassian language, and the maintenance or even more the defense of Circassian place names across the North Caucasus.

The first of these is the Circassian (Adyg) Historical-Geographic Society, and the second is the Unified Circassian Media Space. They already show signs that they will invigorate Circassian activism generally and challenge Moscow (adygplus.blogspot.com/2021/09/new-circassian-historical-geographical.html and caucasustimes.com/ru/cherkesskoe-istoriko-geograficheskogo-obshhestvo-izuchit-gruzinskie-arhivy/).

Day of the Repatriant Sends Unwelcome Messages to Circassian Diaspora

Paul Goble

            Staunton, August 1 – Today, the Adygey Republic is marking the Day of the Repatriant, something it has done on August 1 since 1998 when the first group of ethnic Circassians returned from Kosovo in the war-torn Balkans. But the day also honors Circassians returning from other countries in Europe and the Middle East.

            Unfortunately, the number who have been able to return – about 2,000 in all – is a drop in the bucket compared to the number of Circassians who want to return to the homeland from which their ancestors were expelled in 1864 and who have been blocked by the Russian authorities who fear any mass return would destabilize the North Caucasus.
