The Kazakhs (also spelled Qazaqs) are a Turkic speaking people who mainly live in the Ural Mountains and northern parts of Central and East Asia (most of them live in Kazakhstan, but also parts of Russia, Uzbekistan, Mongolia and China) in Eurasia. The Kazakhs emerged in the 15th century from an amalgam of Turkic tribes and of Mongol tribes.[2]
