The term Kõ Peoples, also sometimes spelled Kun or Kon, refers to four closely related pre-Adzo-Neviric ethnic groups in eastern Tabiqa, southeastern Ebo Nganagam and western Povania. The groups are the Mṗé, Osáŋõ, Osurekõ, and Qicikõ.

Etymology

Kun is the proto-Kõ word for "people," which became /kõ/ in the Osuri language (the most widely-spoken of the surviving languages).

History

The Kõ peoples have inhabited the Tlandin valley since the beginning of recorded history, and archaeological records show evidence of habitation of the valley by pre-hominids as well as early modern humans. The hundreds of paleolithic Tlandin sites indicate that the valley's inhabitants were some of the earliest adopters of semi-sedentary lifestyle in the area, after the advent of early agriculture.

Today's Kõ groups can generally trace their ancestry back to the small and hardy Tlandin Empire which remained independent as enclaves in the mountains throughout most of the expansion of the Adzamic Empire.

Culture

Most Kõ, especially the Osureko of Tabiqa, follow Qurosism.
