Huma County (Chinese: 呼玛县, pinyin: Hūmǎ xiàn; Manchu: Hūmar Siyan; ) is a county of the Greater Khingan prefecture in Heilongjiang, China. The county seat is located on the right (southwestern) bank of the Amur River, a few kilometers upstream from the fall of the Huma River (formerly also known as Houmar) into the Amur.

The opposite side of the Amur River is in Russia, where there is a village with the same name in Russified form, Kumara ()

History

Kumarsk, the predecessor of the present-day Huma, was a fortified Russian town in the Amur river region, founded in 1652 by Yerofey Khabarov and his companions, during his retreat from Achansk, corresponding to the present-day Khabarovsk, where he was besieged by Manchu and Daur allied forces.<br>On March 13, 1655, the Komar fortress, defended by the ataman Onufriy Stepanov and his 500 Cossacks, was besieged by a Qing army led by Mingandali (Sinicized : 明安达理) consisting of 10,000 men. The outnumbered defenders repulsed several assaults. The defeated Manchu lift the siege the following month (on April 3, 1655).The town was ceded to Qing Empire after the treaty of Nerchinsk in 1689.
