Аннотация

The article discusses the sacred concept of the Kazakh people’s female headdresses. In past times headdresses were truly special traditional item in Kazakh people’s costumes. As the Kazakh writer M. Auezov mentioned in his works that Borik had many different types of uses and names, we can confirm that headdresses had and still have a strong place in Kazakh traditions. Headgear – Saukele also, is valuable and still one of the most striking ethnic symbols of Kazakhs. In the cultural and historical aspect, his closest analogy is- the high ceremonial helmet of the Saka Prince-leader, whose rich burial was discovered in the Issyk mound in Southern Kazakhstan territory. So, the headdress became a visible symbol of the connection of many generations in the history of Kazakhs. It’s an addition to the generally accepted norms associated with the wearing of a headdress particularly a female one. As well as familiarizing the readers with the cult and sacred values of Kazakhs.
