Tooruktug Dolgay Tangdym
Tooruktug Dolgay Tangdym (Tuvan : Тооруктуг долгай таңдым, lit. 'The Forest is Full of Pine Nuts') is an old Tuvan folk song that became the national anthem of the Tuvan Autonomous Republic and later official regional anthem of the Republic of Tuva, Russia. On 11 August 2011, it was replaced by a new anthem titled Men – Tyva Men .
The song expresses the Tuvan belief that a person who takes care of his environment, his livestock, and the plentiful taiga will want for nothing. It refers to Tangdy, or the Tannu-Ola mountains, a mountain range in southern Tuva that is revered by the Tuvan people. The name of the mountain range is incorporated into "Tannu-Tuva," the popular name for the Tuvan People's Republic.

Когда я гуляю в своих лесах,
Там, среди гор,
Вот почему я так силен.
Девять различных животных –Если я буду
и позабочусь о них, как о своих,
Kogda ja guljaju v svoih lesah,
Tam, sredi gor,
Vot počemu ja tak silen.
Devjatj različnyh životnyh –Jesli ja budu
i pozabočusj o nih, kak o svoih,
Би ойдоо алхаж байхдаа
Үүнээс болоод би хүчтэй байдаг.
Есөн өөр амьтан –Хэрэв би маллаж байвал
Тэднийг над шиг асран халамжил

The Tuvan People's Republic, known as the Tannu Tuva People's Republic until 1926, was a partially recognized socialist republic that existed between 1921 and 1944. The country was located in the same territory as the former Tuvan protectorate of Imperial Russia, known as Uryankhay Krai, north-west of Mongolia, and now corresponds to the Tuva Republic within the Russian Federation.
The Tuvans or Tuvinians are a Turkic indigenous people of Siberia who live in Russia (Tuva), Mongolia, and China. They speak Tuvan, a Siberian Turkic language. They are also regarded in Mongolia as one of the Uriankhai peoples.
Tuvan, also known as Tuvinian, Tyvan or Tuvin, is a Turkic language spoken in the Republic of Tuva in South-Central Siberia in Russia. The language has borrowed a great number of roots from the Mongolian language, Tibetan and the Russian language. There are small diaspora groups of Tuvan people that speak distinct dialects of Tuvan in the People's Republic of China and in Mongolia.
Tannu Uriankhai is a historic region of the Mongol Empire and, later, the Qing dynasty. The realms of Tannu Uriankhai largely correspond to the Tuva Republic of the Russian Federation, neighboring areas in Russia, and a part of the modern state of Mongolia.
Huun-Huur-Tu are a music group from Tuva, a Russian federative republic situated on the Mongolia–Russia border. Their music includes throat singing, in which the singers sing both a note and its overtones, thus producing two or three notes simultaneously. The overtone may sound like a flute, whistle or bird, but is solely a product of the human voice.
The Tannu-Ola mountains Tuvan: Таңды-Уула, Tañdı-Uula, Uniform Turkic Alphabet: Taᶇdь-Uula, IPA: [tʰaŋˈtɯ ˈuːla] – Tangdy-Uula mountains; Mongolian: Тагнын нуруу, Tağnîn nurú, Mongolian pronunciation: [tʰaɢˈniŋ nʊˈrʊː], Russian: Танну-Ола, [tɐnˈnu ɐˈla]) is a mountain range in southern Siberia, in the Tuva Republic of Russia. It extends in an east-west direction and curves along the Mongolian border. Its highest peak reaches 3,061 m (10,043 ft). The Tannu-ola mountains are mentioned in The Secret History of the Mongols under the name "Tanglu mountains" (唐麓), and also in the JāmiʿAl-tawārīkh of Rashid-al-Din Hamadani (1247–1318) under the name "Toungat mountains" (تنغات). By the Qing dynasty the name has been changed to Tangnu (唐努) mountains, from which the modern name is derived. All names are probably rooted in the old Turkic word taŋ - "wonder, awe, wondrous."
Tuva or Tyva, officially the Tyva Republic, is a federal subject of Russia.
The Soyot people live mainly in the Oka region in the Okinsky District in the Republic of Buryatia, Russia. According to the 2010 census, there were 3,608 Soyots in Russia. Their extinct language was of a Turkic type and basically similar to the Tuvans. Their language has been reconstructed and a textbook has been published. The language is currently taught in some schools in Oka. The Oka River, the largest river flowing down from the Western Sayans into the Angara is called the Ok-hem meaning "an arrow-river" by the Soyots of the Oka River basin.
Tyva Kyzy is an all-female folk ensemble performing Tuvan throat-singing, under the direction of Choduraa Tumat. It is the first and only women's group in Tuva that performs all styles of Tuvan throat-singing.
The Dukha, Dukhans or Duhalar are a small Tuvan Turkic community of reindeer herders living in northern Khövsgöl Aimag of Mongolia.
Khertek Amyrbitovna Anchimaa-Toka was a Tuvan/Soviet politician who in 1940–44 was the Chairwoman of Little Khural of the Tuvan People's Republic, and the first non-royal female head of state. She was the wife of Salchak Toka, who was the republic's supreme leader from 1932 to 1973.
Tuvan throat singing, known as khoomei is one particular variant of overtone singing practiced by people in Tuva, Mongolia, and Siberia. In 2009, it was inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity of UNESCO.
Uvs Lake Basin is an endorheic basin located on the territorial border of Mongolia and Tuva, a republic of the Russian Federation. The basin is part of the Central Asian Internal Drainage Basin and is named after Uvs Lake, a large saline lake situated in the western part of its drainage basin and is one of the last remnants of the mammoth steppes. Uvs Lake is a shallow lake with an area of 3,350 km2 (1,290 sq mi). Its entire basin, which includes several smaller lakes, is 70,000 km2 (27,000 sq mi).

Sevʹyan I. Vainshtein (1926–2008) was a Russian ethnographer, archaeologist, historian and explorer of Siberian and Central Asian peoples. He was a professor at the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.
The territory currently known as Tuva has been occupied by various groups throughout its history. Sources are rare and unclear for most of Tuva's early history. Archeological evidence indicates a Scythian presence possibly as early as the 9th century BC. Tuva was conquered relatively easily by the succession of empires which swept across the region. It was most likely held by various Turkic khanates until 1207. It was then ruled by Mongols until the 18th century, when it submitted to Manchu rule under the Qing dynasty. Slow Russian colonization during the 19th century led to progressive annexation of the region to Russia in the 20th century. The region was then controlled by the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union before finally joining the Russian Federation in 1992. Throughout this whole time, the borders of Tuva have seen very little modification.
Men – tıva men is the anthem of the Republic of Tuva, a federal subject of Russia. It was composed by Olonbayar Gantomir with words by Bayantsagaan Oohiy. It was adopted officially by the Great Khural on 11 August 2011, replacing the previous anthem Tooruktug Dolgay Tangdym.
The Tuvan Internationale is a socialist song set to a Tuvan traditional melody. It was composed during the Tuvan People's Republic. It is often incorrectly listed as the Tuvan language version of "The Internationale" despite the two songs having almost nothing in common aside from similar names. With a different melody and different lyrics, the only similarity between the two songs is the fact that they are about a Workers' International. Even then, however, The Internationale is about the First International whereas the Tuvan Internationale is about the Third International.
The Tuvan People’s Republic entered World War II on the side of the Allied Powers, shortly after the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany, breaking the alliance between the Soviet Union and Third Reich.
The Mongol Internationale was the first national anthem of the Mongolian People's Republic, in use from 1924 to 1950.
