Sedentarism is historical discourse and representation of the nomads by the sedentary world. Sedentarism based on ‘Otherizing’ of the nomads and it formed hierarchically structured binary: sedentary (good, progressive, civilized) - nomadic (bad, retarded, and savage). Sedentarism is originated and developed in all sedentary historical traditions, regardless of place or culture, but it was legitimized through European understanding of history and Orientalism. Sedentarism (like Orientalism by England or France) is used and still is being used, for the most part, by Russia and China for restructuring and governing its [former nomadic] Turkic and Mongolian colonies. After destruction of nomadic civilizations, its descendants, forced to socio-economic and intellectual sedentarization, perceived ‘sedentaristic’ representations about their good, retarded and savage ancestors
