 The Ingush People
The land inside the Terek bend, from the mountaintops to the plains, and extending eastward nearly to the Andi Kojsu and Sulak, was inhabited by Chechen and Ingush prior to the Russian conquest of the Caucasus.
The entire language family is indigenous to the Caucasus mountains and has no demonstrable relations to any language group either in or out of the Caucasus.
To place the question of language spreads and language origins in perspective, all three indigenous language families of the Caucasus have occupied their present territories for millennia longer than any language or language family of Europe, with the possible exception of Basque, has occupied its present territory.

 Who are the Chechen?
There are over 30 languages in the Northeast Caucasian family, most of them spoken in Daghestan just to the east of Chechnya.
Like most indigenous Caucasian languages Chechen has a wealth of consonants, including uvular and pharyngeal sounds like those of Arabic and glottalized or ejective consonants like those of many native American languages; and a large vowel system somewhat resembling that of Swedish or German.

 Definition of Hurrian language
Hurrian is a conventional name for the language of the Hurrians, a people who entered northern Mesopotamia around 2300 BC and had mostly vanished by 1000 BC.
Hurrian is an agglutinative language which belongs to neither the Semitic nor the Indo-European language families.
Some scholars see similarities between Hurrian and the Northeast Caucasian languages, and thus place it in the Alarodian languages family.
