Lamuts, a branch of the Tungus people who occupy the banks of the Kolyma, the shores of the Sea of Okhotsk from the station of Okhotsk to Ghizighinsk Bay, and the west coast of Kamchatka. The Lamuts, who are reindeer nomads, are readily distinguished from the other Tunguses both by their ruder dialect and coarser features, more oblique eyes, more prominent cheek-bones, and extraordinarily small nose. Their camping-grounds are chiefly along the coast, whence their name from the Tungus word lam = "sea"; total population, a little over 3,000.
