Oleg says that Chonos is an ancient clan. They served as vanguard troops in Chingis Khan’s army when he besieged Beijing. The Chonos people came to the Volga as part of the Derbets who in their turn followed the Torghuts. The Chonos clan was led by the zaisang Galzu-Basu. The Baga-Chonos consists of 8 arvans.
