Zaza


People of southeastern Turkey, counting between 1 and 2 million. Due to politics and lack of independent data, the figures are highly uncertain.
The Zaza has generally been classified as Kurds, but they claim to represent their own ethnic group, with a culture and identity distinct from the Kurds.
The Zaza speak a West-Iranian language called Zazaki.
