  slavs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
Slavs first appeared in history living in the Pripyat Marshes area (Polesie), but a considerable number of Slavic words have Indo-Aryan links of the form suggesting genesis from a common ancestor, rather than borrowing.
Slavs appeared in early histories as Venedes or Wends, but their connection to the Veneds mentioned by Tacitus, Ptolemy and Pliny, remains uncertain, and the similarity of the two names may have come about accidentally.
When their migratory movements ended there appeared among the Slavs the first rudiments of state organizations, each headed by a prince with a treasury and defense force, and the beginning of class differentiation, with nobles who pledged allegiance to the Frankish and Holy Roman Emperors.

Finally, several new theories of the origin of Slavs were published, and found large numbers of followers, in the 1990s and 2000s, fueled by the rise of nationalism in Ukraine and Russia.
Some even claim that Slavs existed as an entity as early as the 7th to 5th millennium BC and were ancestors of the Sumerians.
In the early history of the Slavs, and continuing into the Dark Ages, non-Slavic groups were sometimes assimilated by Slavic-speaking populations: the Croats and the Bulgars became Slavicized and their non-Slavic tongues disappeared; in other cases, Slavs themselves were assimilated into other groups such as the Romanians, Magyars, Greeks, etc.

Some recent authors connect the Lugii with Slavs, some with Germanic tribes and still others claim that they formed a compound tribe, or a confederation of tribes of different ethnicity.
Presumably the Slavs, like putative Indo-Europeans, originated from a region in Asia, from which they migrated in the 3rd or 2nd millennium BC to populate parts of eastern Europe.

 EOL 4: Kavals article, p 5   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
State-supported Slavic Macedonian folklorists have contributed to this obscuration by lumping all end-blown flutes and whistles into the category of kavals, and then proceeding to list Slavs as kaval makers.
Thus Hadji-Manov 1960 lists the ethnic Slav Panche Janev as a kaval maker.
The adoption of a state music ensemble in which only ethnic Slavs or Christians are seen to be playing the long kaval contributed to this phenomenon.

 Slavic peoples : Slavs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
Customarily Slavs are subdivided into east Slavs (including Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarusians[?] and Lippovan[?] Russians), west Slavs (chiefly Poles, Kaschubians[?], Slovincians[?], Masurians[?], Czechs, Slovaks[?], and Sorbs and south Slavs (including Serbs, Croats, Bosnian Muslims, the Serbo-Croat groups Bunjevci[?] or 'Bunjewatsen' and Sokci[?], Slovenians, Macedonian Slavs, Bulgarians and the Pomaks.
Slavs historically were described as Venedes[?] or Wends, but their connection to Veneds mentioned by Tacitus, Ptolemy and Plinius, is uncertain, and similarity of name may be accidental.
Prehistorically, the original habitat of the Slavs, as of all Indoeuropeans, was Asia, from which they migrated in the 3rd or 2nd millennium BC to populate parts of eastern Europe.

Smaller groups of Macedonian Slavs live in eastern Albania, south-western Bulgaria, northern Greece and southern Serbia and Montenegro, mostly abutting the border areas of the Republic of Macedonia.
Greece: unknown (Ethnologue lists 180,180 speakers of Slavic in Greece, but makes no claims as to their ethnic affiliation, nor to the methods used to obtain the figure of 180,180 - Greece has not conducted a census on the question of mother tongue since 1951, when 41,017 speakers of the Slavic language were recorded.
Western governments remained, however, mistrustful and contuinued to list the population of Pirin Macedonia as Macedonian until the beginning of the 1990s despite the 1965 census which put Macedonians in the country at 9,000.

 Radio Prague - the international service of Czech Radio
A great many male Czech names end in either slav, which comes from the word sláva, which means glory or celebration, in mír, which means peace or the world, or in mil, which when used in this context means love.
The majority of these names were created during the era of the Czech National Revival in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and were translated directly from Latin.
One name that is glaringly missing from the long list of slavs, considering the Czechs fondness of beer, is Pivoslav, or celebration of beer.

 samo
He was the first ruler of the Slavs whose name is known, and the founder of the so-called (King) Samo's Empire or Samos's Realm (623 - 658), the first known organized community of the Slavs - actually a kind of tribal union, not a true state.
During a Slav anti-Avar revolt in 623 (probably at today's Bratislava-Devín), Samo joined the Slavs, the Avars were defeated under his leadership, and the Slavs made him their ruler, so that what is known as the King Samo's Empire arose.
The Slavs led by King Samo managed to defeat all Avar attacks, but after the Slavs had killed some Frankish merchants and had stolen some of their commodities, they had to fight against the Franks: In 631, the Frankish king Dagobert I Merovingian (603-639, reigned 629-639) sent three armies against King Samo.

In those countries where Slavs are the minority, the Party shall serve as a means to alert that Nation to the needs of the Slavs and also will announce their brotherhood with the Slavic Nations.
This new Party has evolved from the old World Slav Confederation, so it is natural that the Party's flag is an evolved version of the the WSC flag.

 The Magyars - DBA 107
The Magyar list ends in 997 AD, with the death of the Geza (Geisa), son of Takson.
Emperor Leo VI the Wise (886-912 AD) noted that the Magyars "have a liking more for fighting at a distance, setting ambushes, encirclement of their enemy, simulated retreat and about-turning, and for the scattering of fighting formations." These are the classic tactics of a Light Horse army.
The DBA list, however, also reflects the composition of the settled Magyars of Hungary, a population with an increasingly agrarian lifestyle assimilated from their subject Slavs.

But as their talks lost momentum last week, when the Slavs rejected a list of Albanian demands for changes to the constitution, the uprising that began in February gained pace again and fuelled fears of a new Balkans war.
But Macedonian Slav leaders have rejected the draft agreement as it stands, refusing to accept the local approval of the appointment of regional police chiefs and the largely symbolic elevation of Albanian to the status of the second official language.
The Macedonian Slavs rejected their demands for Albanian to be given the status of second official language after Macedonian, and for more powers to be devolved to local police.

 Belarus and the Origin of Slavs - Little of Belorussian & Slavic History
Philologists and archaeologists theorize that the Slavs settled very early in the Carpathian Mountains or in the area of present-day Belarus.
The East Slavs settled along the Dnepr River in what is now Ukraine; then they spread northward to the northern Volga River valley, east of modern-day Moscow, and westward to the basins of the northern Dnestr and the western Bug rivers, in present-day Moldavia and southern Ukraine.
Because territories inhabited by East Slavs made up about 90 percent of the Grand Duchy, they exerted a great cultural influence on the new state.

I think others think of the word "Mormon" the same way many think of the word "Amway Representative." (Apologies to any such on the list!) But you have to admit, we have a reputation as a church, as a people, for strong-selling the Gospel.
The clash between ancient and modern culture never lets up: the presuppositions inherent in the two are irreconcilable, and Card avoids the chauvenistic temptation to have his modern protagonist "enlighten" the ancients.
Indeed, it's the modern protagonist who must become enlightened as he learns how the mindset of this early tribe of Slavs is necessary for survival in their harsh times.
