They are tough fighters as well. BTW, The great warrior Saladin was a Kurd.
Always Remembered RIP
For a look at life in contemporary rural Kurdistan, check out the 2000 movie "A Time For Drunken Horses", dir. Bahman Ghobadi, giving a riveting look at what life in Iranian Kurdistan is like for villagers undertaking a journey to Iraqi Kurdistan to make money for a deformed child to have an operation. Amateur actors and real people, that you would never see on TV. It's Iranian cinema at it's finest.

I have visited the kurdish region of southern Turkey on many occasions to check on crops and visit with suppliers. I like those guys. They are as hard as nails, but extremely generous and hospitable. Can't say I liked the cuisine in Malatya though-burnt whole sheep's head and old rancid mutton preserved in fat. I have a couple of pairs of traditional Kurdish trousers which are cool. They make me look like M.C.Hammer even if I can't dance like him.
