All rights reserved. Traditional courting is still practiced in some Greek villages of western Thrace. For all its simplicity and symbolism, the custom is one of contradiction. Though some young Pomak women continue to take to the swings, most—those who partake in the tradition and those who don't—are forced into arranged marriages. The Pomaks are minorities: Greek citizens, ethnically Slavic, and Muslim by religion—a unique blend that, along with the remote geography of their settlements, contributes to their isolation. The distinctness also helps preserve their cultural identity, though that identity is becoming more and more fragmented. Impacted by traditional religious guidelines, challenging economic woes, and shifting gender roles, Pomak communities are not the same as they once were.
