The Nogai (Nogaies) were a nomadic, warlike branch of the Tartars who lived on the steppes of South Russia when the Mennonites founded the Molotschna settlement there, and who resented their coming because they occupied a number of Nogai meadows. The Nogai, in revenge, became guilty of theft, and on one occasion murdered four Mennonite men. The government then interfered and compelled the Nogai to abandon their nomadic life. They later became friends with the Mennonites. In 1860 the group emigrated to Turkey.
