Wang Guoming. The Tuzu Gesar Epic: Performance and Singers. Oral Tradition, 25/2 (2010): 381-390
The Gesar epic is a Tibetan heroic epic widely spread across the vast ethnic regions of China. It amounts to an encyclopedia that illustrates the life of ancient Tibetans. It has been in contact with other traditional ethnic cultures, and therefore has multiethnic characteristics. The Tuzu Gesar is a long epic, comprised of alternating prose and verse, that has been greatly influenced by the Tibetan Gesar. Tuzu (the minority group is called Tu) is a spoken language with no written system. The great performers of this epic have passed away, leaving only Wang Yongfu, 79 years old and now ill. Thus it is extremely urgent to study and to protect the Tuzu Gesar as performed by him. This paper offers a brief introduction to the content, distribution areas, and historical context of the epic.

Louis M. J. Schram.- The Monguors of the Kansu-Tibetan Frontier.
While the Tibetans were subject to the direct administration of the Chinese sub-prefecture officials, however, the Monguors, in spite of the fact that their territories formed enclaves within the sub-prefectures, were directly administered by their own clan chiefs under a peculiar kind of local autonomy.
Published through the generosity of The Bridge Fund, the twenty-three folktales in this collection are written in Mangghuer that broadly follows Chinese pinyin. This system is easily understood by primary and middle school students. This book's selections were collected by Wang Xianzhen and Zhu Yongzhong in 1996 from Mangghuer villages in Minhe County using a sound recorder. They were later transcribed into Mangghuer and then edited. This is the first book ever written in Mangghuer. It was distributed to Mangghuer students. The preface is written in Minhe Mangghuer and translated into Huzhu Mongghul (Limusishiden), English, Chinese, Tibetan, Spanish (Manuel Lopez)...
