Shahdagh people – Of the regions on the ethnic map of the World, the Caucasus, including Azerbaijan, has been characterized in all periods of history by its multi-ethnicity.

“Shahdagh” peoples, an aboriginal population of Azerbaijan living in the north-east areas of the country, are so-called by virtue of the fact that they populate the Shahdag plateau of the Greater Caucasus. These peoples historically inhabit the villages of Buduq, Jek, Alik, Haput, Khinalug, Yerguj and Kryts. Therefore they are respectively named Budukh,[1] Jeks,[2][3][4][5] Aliks, Haputis,[6][7] Khinalugs,[8][9] Yergujs[10] and Kryts people. The supposed ancestors of these peoples were Caucasian Albanians and each group has its own specific traditions, culture and language.

Shahdagh peoples have specifically characteristic family and cultural traditions. It is possible to find many similarities and varieties between the wedding and mourning traditions of Shahdagh people and those of other historical groups, especially Oghuz Turks.[11]
