A History of the Romani People

by Hristo Kyuchukov and Ian Hancock

Published by Boyds Mills Press, 2005
32 pages
ISBN: 1-56397-962-4

Ages 8-12

Hristo Kyuchukov and Ian Hancockís collaboration presents an intriguing look at the history of the Romani people as well as their lives in contemporary times. Often known as Gypsies, the Romaniís origins have been traced to northern India, and many of their traditional customs still reflect the Indian practices and Hindu beliefs. But across centuries, Romani emigrated throughout Asia and Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Australia. Today the Romani people are on every continent: they are people of many nationalities who practice a range of religions. While some still live in the traditional Romani way, traveling from place to place to make a living, most no longer do. But many, travelers or not, continue to work to keep their language and culture alive. The narrative is divided into brief essays on a range of subjects relating to the Romani, and accompanied by an abundance of photographs featuring both contemporary and historical subjects.
