Mrkojevići

Mrkojevići

Mrko(je)vići is a clan and region in Montenegro. They are located right in between Bar and Ulcinj, bordering Montenegrin Krajina to the east. Some of its members consider themselves Serbs, Muslims or Bosniaks, while most consider themselves exclusively Montenegrin.

The region of Mrko(je)vići is located in Southeastern Montenegro between the municipalities of Bar and Ulcinj. The region covers an area of 91.06 km², of which 77.09 km² falls in the territory of the Municipality of Bar while 13.97 km² falls in the territory of the Municipality of Ulcinj. There are ten areas (Velje Selo, Dabezići, Dobra Voda, Gorana, Grdovići, Kunje, Ljeskovac, Međureč, Pelinkovići and Pečurice) that are in the region and three parts: Bušat, Dubrava and Dobra Voda.

The tribe celebrates a festival called "Dani Mrkojevića" (Days of the Mrkojevići). The festival is public and there is dancing and games.

The tribe is possibly a descendant of the Piperi clan, the founder of the Mrko(je)vići being Mrkota of the Piperi clan, who was also from the village, Mrke, in Piperi.
