    kurgan=burial mound, barrow
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    The adjective derived from мамай is мамаев. Just like Сергей=сергеев. If it's masculine, that is. If it's feminine, then the suffix is -ин-, as in сукин сын.

    (just testing to see whether that makes it thru the filters!)
