About the Udege language

Udege (Udihe) belongs to the Amur group of the Tungus branch of the Manchu-Tungus language family.

Where the speakers live

The Udege live in Russia in the Khabarovsk territory and in the Primorsky territory.

Khabarovsk territory (the data of the plan comissions of the district administrations, January 1, 1985): Djangovsky selsoviet of the Lazo district (the village of Gvasiugidi) - 180 people; Arsenievsky selsoviet of the Nanai district (the village of Arsenievo) - 69 people.

Primorsky territory (the data of the planning commissions of the district administrations, January 1, 1988): Tarneisky district (the village of Agzu) - 135 people; Pozharsky district (the villages of Krasny Yar and Olon) - 345 people; Krasnoarmeisky district - about 30-40 people, according to our estimation (in the data of the planning commissions the Udege of this district have been included into the total number of «people of the North»).

No information on Udege in other countries (except the republics of the former USSR) is available. The traditional territory of the Udege is inside Russia.
