Maty

 

(Self-Designation Mady), an ethnographic group of the 17th century, numbering approximately 600 persons, that inhabited the central part of Tuva (right bank of the Enisei River and the basin of the Khemchik River).

The Maty were principally nomadic livestock breeders. Turkic-speaking and, apparently, Samoyed-speaking tribes took part in their evolution as a people. By the 18th century all of the Maty were Turkic-speaking. The Maty were involved in the formation of the Tuvinians. In the 19th and 20th centuries the descendants of the Maty lived mainly in the northern and northeastern parts of the Tuva ASSR.
