The UB Post - - Sports & Culture - By KH.ALTAN

Over 200 schol­ars, lin­guists and re­searchers from 14 coun­tries in­clud­ing Mon­go­lia, Tur­key, Kyr­gyzs­tan, Azer­bai­jan, Kaza­khstan, Ja­pan, China and the USA are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 7th Al­taic Peo­ple In­ter­na­tional Sci­en­tific Con­fer­ence. The con­fer­ence started on Au­gust 6 and will con­clude on Au­gust 10. The Al­tai peo­ple are peo­ple of Tur­kic des­cent liv­ing in places such as the Siberian Al­tai Repub­lic and Al­tai Krai.

The par­tic­i­pants of the con­fer­ence dis­cuss many top­ics such as the study of lan­guages of the Al­taic peo­ple, the Al­taic his­tory, tra­di­tions, culture, oral lit­er­a­ture, le­gal sta­tus, re­li­gion, his­tory and many oth­ers. Much of the lan­guage and cus­toms of the Mon­gols and the Al­taic peo­ple were in­flu­enced by each other due to his­tor­i­cal re­la­tions and ge­o­graph­i­cal al­lo­ca­tions.

Al­tains are pre­sented by two ethno­graphic groups in­clud­ing the North­ern Al­tains; the Tul­bar, Chelkans, Ku­mandin and the Shor. The South­ern Al­ta­ians con­sist of Al­ta­ian (Al­tai-Kizhi), the Teleut, the Te­les and the Te­len­git. The his­tory of Al­tains is deeply rooted to Mon­go­lia as for a pe­riod of time they were ruled by Mon­go­lia as Te­lengid Prov­ince dur­ing the North­ern Yuan Dy­nasty. Later on, the court re­ferred to them as Altan Nuur Uriyankhangai.
