  Nogai people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Nogai, also spelled Nogay, Noghai, and often called the Caucasian Mongols ("Caucasian" referring to their geographical position in the Caucasus mountains, not to their ethnicity), are a Turkic people and an important ethnic group in the Daghestan region who speak the Turkic Nogai language.
The Nogai are descendants of Kipchaks who mingled with their Mongol conquerors and formed the Nogai Horde.
Some Nogai Turks were obliged by the Kazakhs to emigrate to the Black Sea coast of Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria.
