Siberian Tatars
Tatars
(Siberian Tatar: Сыбырлар, сыбыртар) refers to the indigenous Siberian Tatar
Tatar
population of the forests and steppes of South Siberia
Siberia
stretching from somewhat east of the Ural Mountains to the Yenisei River
Yenisei River
in Russia. The Siberian Tatars
Tatars
call themselves Yerle Qalyq, or "older inhabitants," to distinguish themselves from more recent Volga Tatar
Tatar
immigrants to the region.[3] The word "Tatar" or "Tadar" is also used as a self-designation by some closely related Siberian ethnic groups, namely the Chulym, Shor, Teleut and Khakas peoples. According to the 2002 census, there are 500,000 Tatars
Tatars
in Siberia, but only 9,611 of them are indigenous Siberian Tatars. At least 400,000 are ethnic Volga Tatars, who settled in Siberia
Siberia
during periods of colonisation.[4] The Volga Tatars
Tatars
are an ethnic group who are native to the Volga-Ural region. As of yet, the Siberian Tatars
Tatars
do not have public education available in the Siberian Tatar
Tatar
language. In local schools the lessons are taught only in Russian and Volga Tatar
Tatar
languages. Neither are indigenous to the area and were brought more than two centuries ago by the ethnic Russian and Volga Tatar
Tatar
settlers.

Population[edit]

people.

Siberian Tatars
Tatars
historically lived in the vast territory stretching from around the Yenisei river
Yenisei river
all the way to the area lying somewhat east of the Ural mountains. According to the ambassadors of the Siberian Khanate
Siberian Khanate
ruler Yediger Khan, who visited Moscow in 1555, the population of "the black people," not counting the aristocracy, was 30,700. In a decree concerning tribute issued by Ivan the Terrible, the population was given as 40,000. According to the results of the 1897 All- Russia
Russia
Census, there were 56,957 Siberian Tatars
Tatars
in Tobolsk guberniya. This was the last accurate information about this population. In later censuses, Tatar immigrants from the other regions of Russia
Russia
were also recorded under the classification of Tatar. The Siberian Tatars
Tatars
tried to avoid the census as much as possible, as they believed that it was an attempt to force them to pay the Yasak
Yasak
(tribute).[5]

The Siberian Khanate
Siberian Khanate
(Khanate of Sibir)

Their population in the territory of the current Tyumen Oblast
Tyumen Oblast
in 1926 was recorded as 70,000; in 1959 as 72,306; in 1970 as 102,859; 136,749 in 1979; 227,423 in 1989; and 242,325 in 2002. According to the results of the 2002 Russian Census, there were 385,949 Tatars
Tatars
living in the oblasts discussed above. (Their territory roughly corresponds to the historical territory of the Siberian Khanate). Of these Tatars only 9,289 identified as Siberian Tatars. 2002 Russian Census recorded a total of 9,611 Siberian Tatars
Tatars
in Russia. Some publications estimated their number in the range of 190,000-210,000.[6] Such significant discrepancy is explained by the fact that the immigrants from the other ethnic groups who are also called Tatar
Tatar
by the Russians
Russians
were also included in the figure, though most were Volga Tatars.[4] Origin and ethnogenesis[edit] The term Siberian Tatar
Tatar
covers three autochthonous groups, all Sunni Muslims of the Hanafi
Hanafi
madhab, found in southern Siberia. They are remnants of the Khanate of Sibir, which was conquered by Russia
Russia
in 1582. Geographically, the Siberian Tatars
Tatars
are divided into three main groups, each speaking their own dialect.[3] Although the Siberian Tatar
Tatar
language has been sometimes considered a dialect of Tatar, detailed linguistic study demonstrates that Siberian Tatar
Tatar
idioms are quite remote from Volga Tatar
Tatar
by origin. Siberian Tatars' ancestry was partly from Turkic and Mongol peoples, but their main ancestors are Samoyedic,[7] Ket, and Ugric tribes. Siberian Tatar
Tatar
language[edit] Siberian Tatar language
Siberian Tatar language
is, due to the Kipchakization processes during the Middle Ages, many times classified as belonging to the Kypchak–Nogay group of the Kypchak languages.[8] There are approximately as many elements that could be classified in the Upper Altaian language group. Beginning in the 12th century, the Siberian Tatar language
Siberian Tatar language
received some Karluk influences. Those Siberian Tatars
Tatars
who are living in ethnically mixed villages where, in the periods after Russian colonization, more numerous Volga Tatars
Tatars
settled, have also been influenced by the Kypchak-Bulgar language. Siberian Tatar language
Siberian Tatar language
has different dialects.[8] Since the penetration of Islam
Islam
until the 1920s after the Russian Revolution, Siberian Tatars, like all Muslim
Muslim
nations, were using an alphabet that had been based on Arabic script. In 1928 they adopted an alphabet based on Latin script, and in 1939 one based on the Cyrillic script. Until 2014, the written language for Siberian Tatars
Tatars
was Tatar, a version based on the grammar rules of Volga Tatars. In the 21st century, work began on the rationalizing of the Siberian Tatar
Tatar
language. Teams have conducted scientific research in the field of literary language norms of the indigenous population of Siberia. They have published the "Русско-сибирскотатарский словарь = Урысца-сыбырца сүслек" (2010) (Russian-Siberian Tatar
Tatar
Dictionary), and "Грамматика современного сибирскотатарского языка" (2014)(The Grammar of Modern Siberian Tatar
Tatar
Language). International Organization for Standardization ISO 639-3 PA with its headquarters in Washington, awarded in 2013, the Siberian Tatar language
Siberian Tatar language
classification code 'sty' in New Language Code Element in ISO 639-3. The first person who seriously researched Siberian Tatar language
Siberian Tatar language
was Gabdulkhay Akhatov, a Soviet Volga Tatar
Tatar
linguist and an organizer of science. Groups[edit] Tobol-Irtysh Tatars[edit] Main article: Tobol-Irtysh Tatars The Tobol-Irtysh Tatars
Tatars
group is the most numerous out of all 3 groups of Siberian Tatars. They live in the Tyumen, Kurgan and Omsk Oblasts. The sub-groups are: Zabolotnie (Yaskolbinsk), Tobol, Kurdak-Sargat, Tara, Tyumen-Turin. Baraba Tatars[edit] Main article: Baraba Tatars Their self-designation is Baraba, and they are found mainly in the steppe of Baraba, in the Novosibirsk Oblast. Their population is around 8,000. The sub-groups are: Baraba-Turazh, Lyubey-Tunus, Terenin-Choy. Tomsk Tatars[edit] The Tomsk Tatars
Tatars
are indigenous population of Tomsk, Kemerovo and to some extent Novosibirsk Oblasts. The sub-groups are: Kalmak, Chat, Eushta. Siberian Bukharans[edit] Main article: Siberian Bukharans The Bukhalyks, literally "those from the city of Bukhara" are descendents of 15th- and 16th-century fur merchant colonies from Central Asia. These settlers have now merged entirely with Siberian Tatars. Famous Siberian Tatars[edit]
