Abstract

Necessity of migration from Caucasia forced emigrants to find new homelands in unknown new geographies. Ottoman Empire’s permit this massive migration wave from Caucasia in placing them different geographies in Anatolia relieved emigrants somewhat. Emigrants who had no difficulty in making homeland in settled places demanded places which had familiar climate with geographies where they came while trying to keep pace with Anatolia’s seasonal conditions and had no difficulty in settling down Azizia. In archive documents, relationship between Caucasian emigrants and government generally majored on land, slavery- servility, military service, help from government and location change request. After settled in Azizia, they were in an intensive cultural interaction because of living with local people together. It was experienced big hostilities between Circassians migrated from Caucasia and Afshars who were inhabitants that government had to interfere in. These relationships arising from living together in the same geography continued in the period of Republic of Turkey. Especially these strife between Afshars and Circassians were even issues of anecdotes told by people.
