RADIO USKANA -ZĖRI I KĖRĒOVES ***

Kėrēova,known as USKANA in ancient time, constitutes a seperate ethnic cultural historical unit in the central part of the Western Macedonia.It retains characterestic feauters of material and intelectual life that distinguish this region in some features,from other Albanian regions of the geographical territory of Macedonia, but wich, at same time, link it with the most general and essential characteristics.As such , this represents a unity in the frames of diversity and changes of the Albanian trunk. The Albanian ethnic population of Kėrēova, like the Albanian ethnic population in the other regions of Macedonia with material and spiritual culture,with the ethnology and etnography, with the historical and modern toponomastics,with speach and other entities. Albanians of the geographical teritories of Kėrēova are autochtonous and ancient population, that are successors of some Illyrian tribes as PEONĖT within Vardar river,LINKĖSTET around Manastir ,DERIOPĖT around town Prilep, DASARET around lake Ohrit .

The number of the Albanian toponyms naming villages and dwellings of the most ancient type in the geographical territory of Kėrēova during the antiquity and the Early Middle Ages is not worthless as the Slavo- Macedonian science, based on well-known nationalistic reasons,says.In fact it is very great and important and as such it has e great cultural and historical influence to testify to the relevant fact that the Albanians in their ethnic regions in Kėrēova represent the essential element. In the this framework they are bearers not only of rural life but even of urban one .Compare for example the toponyms of the type Arbanasi, Arbanasinec, Gjuteti,Pėrroj Gjutetit,Trojet,Panagjyri etc.To say the truth, the name of the city of Kėrēova is not of Slav origin as some Slavo-Macedonian authors for some nacionalistic purposes say.This name is related to the proper name of Kir, diminutive Kirēe of Greek provenance ,even the Albanians maneged to keep this name.
