Yazidis: A mostly Kurmanji–speaking ethnoreligious group or an ethnic Kurdish minority
Yazidis are an endogamous and mostly Kurmanji-speaking group of contested ethnic origin, indigenous to Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. The majority of Yazidis remaining in the Middle East today live in Iraq, primarily in the Nineveh and Dohuk governorates. The Yazidi religion is monotheistic and can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamian religions and it also has some similarities with Abrahamic religions.
