Original version
The mirror

Bela was Adyghe or Kabarde?

Poetry translated into the adyghe language (Western Cherkess) for about 100,000 people. The Western Tcherkess is spoken only in about twenty villages. Bela, the heroine of Lermontov writer was circasian. Perhaps she is hiding behind this pretty mirror! It is necessary to distinguish kabardian (Eastern Cherkess) and adyghe which are two distinct languages of neighboring populations by their origne.

The Adyghes

The Circassians date back to ancient times, and until the middle of the 19th century occupied almost the entire region between the caucasus Mountains, the Kuban river, and the black sea. The adyghe is also a part of the Circasia territory. The Republic of Adyghe remains a wild and very wooded area since forests cover 41% of its territory. The Adyghes people live at the western Caucasus extremity, in the low valleys of the Kuban and Laba rivers, which form the autonomous region of the Adyghes
