The instigator of the annual meetings at Lurs in the last week of August was Maximilien Vox, with whom Excoffon and I had become acquainted in Paris.

In addition to these primary ethnic neighbors, there are many smaller ethnic groups whose territories border those of the Kurds, such as the Georgians (including the Lâz) and the Armenians to the north, the Azeris to the northeast, the Lurs to the southeast, and the Turkmens to the southwest.
The assimilation process continues today and can, for example, be observed among the Laks, who, although they still speak a Kurdish dialect (see Laki) and practice a native Kurdish religion (see Yârsânism), have been more strongly associated with the neighboring Lurs than with other Kurds.
The distinction between the Kurds and their ethnic neighbors remains most blurred in southern Kurdistan in the area where they neighbor the Lurs, that is, on the Hamadân-Kirmânshâh-llâm axis.
