The Yazidis are a Kurdish ethnoreligious group whose syncretic ancient religion Yazidism  is linked to Zoroastrianism and ancient Mesopotamian religions. They live primarily in the Nineveh Province of Kurdistan. Additional communities in Armenia, Georgia have been in decline since the 1990s as a result of significant migration to Europe, especially to Germany. The bulk of the Yazidi population lives in Iraq, where they make up an important minority community.
