From Wikipedia: The Zazas, Kird, Kirmanc or Dimilis are an ethnic Iranic people whose native language is Zazaki spoken in eastern Anatolia. They primarily live in the eastern Anatolian provinces, such as Adıyaman, Aksaray, Batman, Bingöl, Diyarbakır, Elazığ, Erzurum, Erzincan (Erzıngan), Gumushane, Kars, Malatya, Mus, Sanliurfa, Sivas, and Tunceli provinces. Almost all speakers of the Zaza language consider themselves as Kurds and are usually collected by international statistics and surveys (for example the University of Harvard and Columbia) as part of the Kurdish people.
A conference on the Zaza people is being held in Yerevan this fall, and currently asking for a call for papers:
