The Olot people (Mongolian: Өөлд/Ööld, English: Eleut) are an Oirat sub-ethnic group of Choros origin. They were one of the strongest tribes of the Oirats. Today, Mongolian Olots live in Erdenebüren and Ölziit sums. There are a few Olots in Hulunbuir region and 40,000(?) Olots in Xinjiang province of China. Ölziit Olots absorbed into the Khalkha Mongols, and Erdenebüren Olots (3,000 people) retained their Oirat heritage.
