ABSTRACT
Based on field data collected in the 1990-2000s, archival documents, published statistics data, some publications, the article analyses the important aspects of life of one of the Veps ethnic local groups since the early XX century up to the present days. Before 1930 the number of southern Vepsians increased, while the next period has seen a constant decline of the population. Among the significant changes are those concerning the living environment, economic activity, material culture. However, we note that traditional ideas and beliefs remain stable. The linguistic sphere is marked by a decline in use of the native language. Ethnic identity of the group was significantly influenced by public policy and interaction with neighboring groups of the Russian population. The facts mentioned above suggests a negative trend, leading to a loss of ethnic identity and assimilation with southern Vepsians.
