Ceklin (Albanian: ceklinë, cektinë, which means shallow)[1] (pronounced [tsɛ̌kliːn]) is one of the old tribes of Montenegro, belonging to the Riječka Nahija (River Province).

Origin[edit]

The origins of this tribe are from the base of Ceklinštak Mountain and it is divided into two sub-tribes, Donjaci and Gornjaci; Gornjaci was formed by Leka, who migrated from Klimenti, while the Donjaci was formed by his son-in-law Vukosav, whose mother would marry Leka after her husband's death.[2]

Territory[edit]

The Ceklin tribe expanded in the late 17th century when they expelled Bjelice from the territory around Skadar Lake and Rijeka Crnojevića by the 18th century.[3][4] The tribe seat is at the village of Ceklin, which comprises thirteen clans. Other villages in the tribal region are: Strugari, Ulici, Bokovo, Jankovići, Đalci, Drušići, Rvaši, Zagora, Bobija, Vranjina, Dujeva (with smaller villages/subsections: Mihaljevići, Trnovi Do and Riječani), town of Žabljak Crnojevića (with many brotherhoods) and at the end of the territory known as Riječka Okolina and Varošica Rijeka in which there are other occupants.(written by Nikola V.Popovic).
