This article is about the ethno-linguistic group. For the peoples of Iran, see Demographics of Iran.

The Iranian peoples or Iranic peoples are a diverse Indo-European ethno-linguistic group that comprise the speakers of Iranian languages.

Proto-Iranians are believed to have emergenced a separate branch of the Indo-Iranians in Central Asia in the mid 2nd millennium BC. At their peak of expansion in the mid 1st millennium BC, the territory of the Iranian peoples stretched across the Iranian Plateau and the entire Eurasian Steppe from the Great Hungarian Plain in the west to the Ordos Plateau in the east. The Western Iranian Persian Empires came to dominate much of the ancient world at this time, leaving an important cultural legacy, while the Eastern Iranian nomads of the steppe played a decisive role in the development of eurasian nomadism and the Silk Route. Ancient Iranian peoples include the Medes, Scythians, Massagetaes, Sarmatians, Parthians, Alans, Bactrians, Sogdians, Khwarezmians, and other people of Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Iranian Plateau.

In the 1st millennium AD their area of settlement was reduced as a result of Germanic, Slavic, Turkic and Mongol expansions. The Iranian peoples comprise the present day Persians, Tajiks, Lurs, Azeris, Pashtuns, Kurds, Balochs, Ossetians, and Pamiris. Their current distribution spreads across the Iranian plateau, and stretches from the Caucasus in the north to the Persian Gulf in the south, and from Xinjiang in the east to eastern Turkey in the west – a region that is sometimes called the "Iranian cultural continent", or Greater Iran by some scholars, and represents the extent of the Iranian languages and significant influence of the Iranian peoples, through the geopolitical reach of the "Greater Iran".
