Kashmiris: Ethnic group native to the Kashmir Valley, in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir
Kashmiris are a Dardic ethnic group native to the Kashmir Valley who are primarily located in the present-day Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The Kashmiri language, which is classified as a part of the Dardic branch of the greater Indo-Aryan languages, serves as the ethnic group's native and primary language, while most or all Kashmiris also speak Hindi-Urdu as a fluent secondary language. Ethnic Kashmiris are predominantly concentrated in the Kashmir Valley–which is considered to be Kashmir proper from a technical aspect, thereby excluding the other territories of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir which are also often grouped together as a larger entity and referred to as part of the region of Kashmir. Other ethnic groups living in the former Jammu and Kashmir state region include Gujjars, Dogras, Paharis, Baltis and Ladakhis.
