Nomads are an important but neglected and misunderstood element of the Ottoman Society. Subject to great resettlement attempts in the XVIIth and XIXth centuries, they would lose their place in the Ottoman classical era as a result of some of their responsible behaviors and new demands. Their assets, which are not preferred one by one with the Ottoman people due to their economic returns, are in danger in the last two centuries of the empire. When the Ottoman Empire could not prevent the nomadic movements and especially the damages they caused, it was decided that the best choice for them was the settlement. However, the behavior and banditry of the nomads that reacted and were punished with resettlement can be considered as a struggle to live as a nomad and to protect their existence, not an empty act. To reveal the spiritual background of nomadic popular uprisings and banditry activities that appeared around the nomadic groups before and after the settlements; making use of their works to make the story more meaningful and as a result, it is based on seeing the transformation in the social lives and minds of the nomadic groups living in this period. The aim of this research is to focus on the changes and turmoil caused by the people of the region and the mind world in everyday life, to look at the events from the eyes of the nomads as much as possible: to present a different story of the events with a perspective to be brought to the historical narrative; rather than the cause and effect relation of the resettlement movements as an internal policy tool.
