  Ingushetia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ingushetia is situated on the northern slopes of the Caucasus.
The Ingush Autonomous Oblast was established in 1924.
While the Ingush were rehabilitated in the 1950s, they were not allowed to return to their homes, Prigorodny District remained part of North Ossetia, and the returning Ingush faced considerable animosity from the Ossetian population that has been settled there.

 The Ingush People
The clans of the Chechen and the Ingush, the ties of those clans to their own land, and the biological ancestry of those clans on that land, are patterns that almost certainly go back for many millennia and are affected little if at all by shifts of language.
Ingush in particular, though fluently spoken by a sizable speech community, is endangered by a combination of mass bilingualism in Russian, functional restrictions imposed by Soviet language policy up until 1991, and lack of opportunities for professional employment and higher education in or near Ingushetia.
Ingush and Chechen ethnic identity and social structure rest on principles of respect and deference to one's elders, formal and dignified relations between clans, and courteous and formal public behavior.

 TURAN - INGUSHETIA
During the Stalinist puges of the 1930s, Ingush intellectual leaders were slaughtered, the language outlawed, and attempts were made to suppress Muslim traditions.
Because of this lack of loyalty to Soviet power, the Chechens and Ingush (totalling 319,000 and 74,000 respectively) were deported to Siberia and Central Asia and removed from official statistics.
