“Various myths exist concerning Kurdish origins. The myth that the Kurds are descended from children hidden in the mountains to escape Zahhak, a child-eating giant, links them mystically with ‘the mountain’ and also implies, since the myth refers to children rather than one couple, that they may not all be of one origin." -from A Modern History of the Kurds by David Dowall - myths are all part of #nationbuilding
