The project aimed to study changes on the cultural values of the Mongolian nomads. During this study, we made a sociological interview and questionnaire among herders of five sums of Dornod and Uvurkhangai aimags and some herders of Ulaanbaatar's regions. As result of this investigation, we made below-mentioned conclusions:
Our well-known scholar, historian and ethnographer A.Ochir implemented this grant project. The main outcome of this project is a monograph on "Ethnical content and origin ethnonym of Mongols". In this monograph, Prof. A.Ochir clarified the origin of the ethnonym of the 220 ethnical clans of Mongols.
For instance, he clarified the ethnonym of Mongol. In the early time the Manj-Tungus people called some of the Mongolian clans as manggu/mangu by Amur River name, where these clans habited. This word as manggu/mangu in the process of the transformation became the ethnonym as manggul or monggol.
