Originally, the term Tatar was applied to certain Mongol tribes by Chinese. The term was spread to people who were nomads and later members of Hurde – Mongols, Kypchaks (western Kazakhs & Nogai), Crimean Tatars, Kazan Tatars, Siberian Tatars and others. Today, many people associate Tatars with Kazan Tatars – former subjects of Volga Bulgaria.
