Kipchaks, a historical Turki nation, Eastern Turkestan, now chiefly between the Kara-daria and Naryn rivers, province of Andijan. Although often classed with the Buruts, their affinities seem to be rather with the Kirghiz. Some even regard them merely as a branch of the Middle Horde, by whom the purity of the Kirghiz type and speech has been toest preserved. After the overthrow of the ancient Kipchak kingdom about the Lower Volga, the mation was dispersed in various directions, so that groups of Kipchaks are still found in Bokhara, Khiva, Khokand, and many other places.
