Chukchi, also known as Chukot or Chuuk, is a Chukotko–Kamchatkan language spoken by the Chukchi people in the easternmost extremity of Siberia, mainly in Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. According to the Russian Census of 2010, about 5,100 of the 15,000 Chukchi people speak Chukchi; knowledge of the Chukchi language is decreasing, and most Chukchi now speak Russian. The language is closely related to Koryak. Chukchi, Koryak, Kerek, Alutor and Itelmen form the Chukotko-Kamchatkan language family. There are many cultural similarities between the Chukchis and Koryaks, including economies based on reindeer herding. Both peoples refer to themselves by the endonym Luorawetlat (‘ԓыгъоравэтԓьат’; singular Luorawetlan – ‘ԓыгъоравэтԓьан’), meaning "the real people".
