Old talk[edit]

Obviously, there are a bunch of different ethnic groups in Russia. I've only recently begun to learn about many of them. Gringo300 08:51, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Two things: who is the 'head of the Chukchi' in today's world, who were their historical leaders, and were there any famous Chukchi people in world or Russian/American history?

"related groups" info removed from infobox[edit]

For dedicated editors of this page: The "Related Groups" info was removed from all {{Infobox Ethnic group}} infoboxes. Comments may be left on the Ethnic groups talk page. Ling.Nut 23:25, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Discussion points that should have been added to the discussion page[edit]

The following text was removed from the article:

"---->Need Check: Forsyth has the Chukchis in two groups in the 17th century, the main group on the Chukchi Peninsula north of the mouth of the Anadyr and a smaller group on the Arctic coast west of the mouth of the Kolyma. From about 1711 they expanded to the Kolyma and absorbed most of the Chuvans. But the Russian Wikipedia says that they lived on both sides of the Kolyma and were driven east of the Kolyma by the Russians. This contradiction needs to be checked"

Chukchis and Russians[edit]

to anonymous editor: I restored the Chukchis and Russians header. This is a common problem. Many names of states are also names of peoples. A person can be a Turk politically but a Kurd ethnically. Many of the inhabitants of political Russia and not ethnic Russians. In the early period Chukchis and Russians were different politically as well as ethnically. The use of the same word for a state and a people can cause confusion, but the ethnic meaning seems clear in this case. Benjamin Trovato (talk) 03:06, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Chukchi and Americans[edit]

Are Chukchi in any way related to Americans?--82.134.154.25 (talk) 16:05, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Currently the article claims exactly that. However, it is extremely unlikely that any of the Siberian waves of immigration to the Americas can be identified specifically with the Chukchi. They cannot have existed as an identifiable ethnic group (identifiable with the modern ethnic group, that is) such a long time ago. Compare Chukotko-Kamchatkan languages. This phrasing strikes me as similar to claiming that the native population of Australia and Melanesia derive from ancestors of the Malay, who we know in fact derive from a later wave of immigration ultimately from Taiwan, and similarly there is no proof at all that the Chukchi directly represent the oldest layer of population in the area where they live now; in fact it is quite unlikely that there has been any sort of continuity (whether linguistic, ethnic or genetic) in the area since the immigration of the first groups across Bering Strait. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 02:02, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Put another way, to speak of Chukchi 13,000 years ago (!!!) strikes me as equally anachronistic as to speak of Englishmen, Germans or French at the same time. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 02:08, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Chukchi in Ukraine[edit]

With all respect to the 30 Chukchi people living in the Ukraine, I believe this section is not relevant and should be removed. How many Chukchi live in the rest of Europe? 81.63.71.175 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 22:15, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
