Actually this message is for Benzin on Oirat tribes' names. Hoshut, Ölööd, Eleud. Hoshut is one four major tribes of Oirat. Most Mongolians of Kalmykia of Russia belong to the tribe.In my country Mongolia there is nobody from this tribe, I guess.Their homeland was south-east of Zuungar, present Shinzang province of China. Ölööd may be misspelling Ööld, which is a tribe Oirat (but not major one). Amarsanaa is from this tribe. The guy betrayed to Manju king, and caused extinction of Zuungar kingdom in 1757. I have never heard the Eleud tribe, but its name implies that it is Mongolian since it has Mongolian plural suffix.
Some imagery, presents at least some type of idea of how my people lived between Antiquity all the way up to the late 1500s.
There is also one man named Lalli who did little to liberate finland but is famous for killing a bishop that came to his house when only his wife was home and demanded the poor family to share their food, drinks and fodder with him and his entourage without paying. When Lalli later came home and found out. He pursued the bishop and found them crossing a frozen river. The bishops entourage fled and hid in a nearby forest, while Lalli decapitated bishop Henrik with an axe.

Finnish people are quite related to Siberians and other northern Asians like Mongolians, northern Turkics and Finno-Ugric people of western Siberia. The Saami are another ethnic group who physically resemble northern Asians, although miscegenation has caused them to look around 70% Caucasoid.
