    The Mongolian Cultural Association performed today (July 11, 2002) at the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History (Baird Auditorium).  As you can see below, the show featured music, dancing, singing, and colorful traditional costumes, all very nicely done.  The Mongolian Cultural Association was formed in early 2002 with the purpose of presenting Mongolia’s cultural heritage to Americans.
