In this paper the attention is given to metanastasic (staged) migratory currents and settlement of MaÄva in the context of socio-historical changes and geopolitical developments from 17th to the end of the 20th century. The waves of migrants from different directions lapped sparsely native population and gradually assimilated so that now makes up unique cultural and ethnographic complex.
