This sublist includes indigenous peoples of Russia which are titular nations, i.e., peoples who gave rise to the names of national entities: independent states or autonomous areas.

Indigenous peoples of Dagestan[edit]

This small republic has a relatively large number of ethnic groups and languages. According to a 2000 decree of the government of Russian Federation,[1] Dagestan was supposed to compile its own list of small-numbered indigenous peoples, to be included in the overall list of minor indigenous peoples of Russia. The peoples below do not fall under the criteria of the decree.
