Mongolia Nomadic Tribes Stand With Standing Rock Sioux

Mongolia is one of the last countries with vast landscapes of big nothingness, no cities, no trace of humans as far as the eye can see.
 Glorious crystal clear rivers, pristine mountains, where the hands of the delusional man has not reached in its fever to build, and change nature's ways, because he knows better.

At 1,564,116 square kilometres, Mongolia is the 18th largest and the most sparsely populated fully sovereign country in the world, with a population of around 3 million people. It is also the world's second-largest landlocked country.

The country contains very little arable land, as much of its area is covered by grassy steppe, with mountains to the north and west and the Gobi Desert to the south. Ulaanbaatar, the capital and largest city, is home to about 45% of the country's population.

Approximately 30% of the population is nomadic or semi-nomadic; horse culture is still integral. The majority of its population are Buddhists.

Mongolia is known as the "Land of the Eternal Blue Sky" or "Country of Blue Sky" (Mongolian: "Mönkh khökh tengeriin oron") because it has over 250 sunny days a year. 

Today, worldwide Mongols honor the memory of the Great Khaan Chinggis, the creator of the sovereign Mongol Nation. For over 800 years, the Mongols have maintained the memorials of the Great Khaan Chinggis in the Ordos region of Southern Mongolia.
