Middle jüz consists of six tribes. The tribes, in turn, are subdivided into clans, creating a hierarchical pyramid of affiliations. Some historians claim that Middle Juz have originated from first Huns. But tribes of modern Middle jüz were fully revealed to European accounts only during Genghis Khan's era.
A linguistic trace of jüz political organization can be found in semantically identical words of Church Slavonic meaning "links, cuffs".
