Kabarda, Kabard or Kabarid are simply alternative ways of referring to the Kabar people of the northern Caucasus more commonly known by the plural term Kabardin (or Kebertei as they term themselves). Originally they comprised the semi-nomadic eastern branch of what was once the Adyghe tribal fellowship. They number around 391,000 (as of 1989), living mainly in Kabardino-Balkaria, a republic in the Russian Federation. Most Kabards are Sunni Muslims. They speak Kabardian, a North West Caucasian language that represents the easternmost outpost of the Circassian language group.
