Feminists have been breaking boundaries for centuries. Now, a new wall has been knocked down as 13 year-old Ashol-Pan became Mongolia’s first and only golden eagle apprentice huntress. Photographer Asher Svidensky captured how Ashol-Pan was “more comfortable with it, a lot more powerful with it and a lot more at ease with it.” In the Kazakh culture, at the age of 13, boys learn how to use golden eagles to hunt for hares and foxes. The hunters, traveling usually in teams, trek for miles on horseback to find prey in temperatures as low as -40˚F. Once prey is spotted, an eagle is released for the kill. “The skill of hunting with eagles,” Svidensky says, “lies in harnessing an unpredictable force of nature.” While it is amazing that the Kazakh men are so in tune with and trusting of golden eagles, it is wildly impressive and progressive that a girl now joins the hunting team. Check out the gorgeous photos of this groundbreaking young lady.
