The headdress of the traditional Turkic shaman is often called a böört, which is pronounced like bird, but with a "t" at the end. The Böört is a very important part of the shaman’s equipment. It not only protects the shaman from negative entities called Aza, it also gives the owner a light feeling in the head when it is put on.
