"Until the Soviet revolution of 1917, Kirghiz was called Kara
(Black) Kirghiz
, or Western Kirghiz, and the Kazakh language
was known simply as Kirghiz, or Eastern Kirghiz.   Kirghiz is a
Turkic language spoken by about a million people in the Kirghiz
SSR of the Soviet Union and in adjacent areas of Sinkiang
Province, China.   One of the oldest Turkish tribes, these nomadic
Musl_ms migrated from the upper Yenisy River area, where
they had been known since the 7th century."
