Aldar Kusa is found in fairy tales, short anecdotes, epics and stories. In all of them, Aldar Kusa is portrayed as a cunning, funny, clown-like hero. But depending on each case, its qualities change. Even the name itself is translated as Sly, Deceiver. Aldar is the beloved son of the Kazakh people, he left the people and serves his people, a caring son, not sparing himself, his strength for the sake of justice, honesty, he appears to us in the form of a hero-defender of the weak and defenseless. Kazakh jokes about Aldar Kus are constantly told, updated and serve for the benefit of people.
