The Bosniaks or Bosniacs (Bosnian: Bošnjaci, pronounced [boʃɲǎːtsi]; singular masculine: Bošnjak, feminine: Bošnjakinja) are a South Slavic nation and ethnic group native to the Southeast European historical region of Bosnia, which is today part of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Medieval Bosniaks or Bosnians (called Dobri bošnjani = Good Bosnians) practiced different religions but they all spoke the Bosnian language. Today, Bosniaks are mostly Bosnian-speaking, and write in the Latin alphabet or Cyrillic alphabet. Most modern Bosniaks are Muslims, and some are agnostic and atheists.
The pre-Slavic roots of the Bosniaks may be traced back to Paleolithic and Neolithic settlers who became Indo-Europeanized during the Bronze Age.The Indo-European-speaking Illyrians) arrived in the western Balkans about 2000 BCE, overrunning old European cultures such as the Butmir culture in the vicinity of present-day Sarajevo.

Two thirds of Sandžak Bosniaks trace their ancestry to the regions of Montenegro. which they started departing first in 1687, after Turkey lost Boka Kotorska. The trend continued in Old Montenegro after 1711 with the extermination of alleged converts to Islam. Another contributing factor that spurred migration to Sandžak from the Old Montenegro was the fact that the old Orthodox population of Sandžak moved towards Serbia and Habsburg Monarchy in two waves, first after 1687, and then ...

As with all modern European nations, a large degree of 'biological continuity' exists between the Bosniaks and their ancient predecessors with Bosniak Y chromosomal lineages testifying to predominantly Paleolithic European ancestry. A majority of Bosniaks belong to one of the three major European Y-DNA haplogroups: I2, R1a and R1b, while a minority belongs to less frequently occurring haplogroups E-V13 and J2, along with other more rare lineages. Studies based on bi-allelic markers of the NRY ha
According to 2013 autosomal IBD survey "of recent genealogical ancestry over the past 3,000 years at a continental scale", the speakers of Serbo-Croatian language share a very high number of common ancestors dated to the migration period approximately 1,500 years ago with Poland and Romania-Bulgaria cluster among others in Eastern Europe. It is concluded to be caused by the Hunnic and Slavic expansion, which was a "relatively small population that expanded over a large geographic area", particul
Y-DNA studies on Bosniaks show close affinity to other neighboring South Slavs. Y-DNA results show notable frequencies of I2 with 43.50%, R1a with 15.30%, E-V13 with 12.90% and J-M410 with 8.7%. The approximate frequency and variance distribution of haplogroup I-P37 clusters, ancestral "Dnieper-Carpathian" and derived "Balkan", in Eastern Europe per O.M. Utevska.

Genetically, on the maternal mitochondrial DNA line, a majority of Bosnians belong to three of the eleven major European mtDNA haplogroups - H, U and J, while a large minority belongs to other rare mitochondrial lineages. The mtDNA studies shows that the Bosnian population partly share similarities with other Southern European populations, but are for the mostly featured by a huge combination of mtDNA subclusters that indicates a consanguinity with Central and Eastern Europeans, such as modern G
