The Kalmyks: The Mongols who were left Behind


This film was created by Dechen Kelden, a Kalmyk Mongolian who was born and raised in Jackson, NJ. She is a current student at Sarah Lawrence College who took on this project to create an accessible film for young Kalmyks to learn about their history as an Oirat group from the Western Steppes of Mongolia. She is interested in Cultural Preservation studies and working within the Tibetan community based in New York City.
This film is currently a sample and will be expanded upon in the near future with additional interviews and a possible Russian translation.

Directed by Dechen Kelden
Produced and Edited by Tenzin Wangchuk

To recognize the endangerment of the Kalmyk cultural and to help unify the Kalmyks

Mendit! To recognize the endangerment of the Kalmyk cultural and to help unify the Kalmyk s (and related peoples) separated by lands and waters, this blog is designed to create a safe place for education in, preservation of, and pride in the identity. Cultural revolution (via social media), anyone?

Run by New Jersey born half-Kalmyk college student: Elena “Lanie” Emelchin Brunner of the Ombadykow/Ivanchukov flavor.
