The Ejine Torghuts have 13 clans, but most people don’t know which one they belong to; they only know that they are Torghuts. Namjilma says that a couple of years ago the Ejine banner government organised a get-together event, but few showed up, because most people do not know their clan names. In the video, Namjilma says that she learned about 60 songs from her maternal relatives, but her learning was cut short in 1958 when she was 14. That year, due to the military occupation of their homeland, her maternal relatives had to move to the Mazong mountains while she was sent to the Gurnai farm with her brother. She can now remember the melodies of most of the songs but not the lyrics. She has written down 40 stories she has heard from her father.
