Because of their dark eyes, they are called "Black-Eyed" or "Kara-Gozlu" in Turkish. They speak South Azerbaijani, a Turkic language.
The Qaragozlu can be farmers, herders or traders. Many are now businessmen who have contributed to the development of their homeland.
Unlike the Shia Muslim majority in Iran, the Qaragozlu are Sunni Muslims like their Turkic ancestors.
