Chechen Americans are Americans of Chechen descent. Chechen people have origins from Chechnya, a federal subject of Russia.


The first Chechen settlers arrived in the USA in the 1950s and 1960s. They are a small minority group with a population numbering only several hundred, as of 2013. Exact statistics are difficult to obtain because Chechens are categorized as Russians in asylee reports. The estimated 150 Chechen families live mainly in Paterson, New Jersey, and form part of the larger North Caucasian community there. Other most significant Chechen communities are in Boston, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles areas.[2]
