Identity has been approached in a number of ways but the analyses have usually been centred on the interactions among the living. In this paper I address the question: Does identity play a role when the living pay their respects to the deceased? I argue that the answer is 'yes' in the Kyrgyz case. The paper explores the past and present debates on Kyrgyz funerary practices and focuses more particularly on what could be called, following Herzfeld (1997), the 'sore zones' of identity and the challenge they represent to themodern state.
