Historical Relation:

Until the beginning of the 20th century, the Lokays settled the southern territories of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (if we consider the modern borders of these states), as well as the north of Afghanistan. The Lokays made up a significant part of the residents of Hisar and Baljuan beks. Also, the southern slopes of the western part of the Gissar Range, which were part of the beks, are inhabited by Lokai. There are many Lokai people in Tajikistan in the south of the country.
Lokays are mentioned among the tribes of mixed Mongolian and Turkic origin. Kungrat, Lokai, Katagan, Durmen are considered one tribal group. There is an opinion that the Lokai separated from the Katagan. According to oral legends, the Lokays lead their family tree from Karmysh, half-brother of Genghis Khan.
