The Alyutors (Russian: ????????; self designation: ????????, or Alutal’u) are an ethnic group (formerly classified as a subgroup of Koryaks) who lived on the Kamchatka and Chukotka peninsulas of the Russian Far East. Today most of them live in the Koryak Autonomous Okrug. The name also occurs as Olyutorka, a settlement where many of the Alyutors used to live. There is no precise data on the number of Alyutors, but it is estimated that there are approximately 2,000 to 3,000 of them living in Russia nowadays.
