Although not called the "National District" (it was proclaimed as such on October 10, 1931) it is classified as the district of the titular nationality (Район с «титульной» нацией) on the linguistic basis. Gornomariyskiy language (Mountain Marii) is considered either as the dialect of Marii or a separate language, depending on whom you would like to listen to.
