Veps National Volost

Veps National Volost (Russian: Ве́псская национа́льная во́лость, Vepsskaya natsionalnaya volost; Veps: Vepsän rahvahaline volost’) was a municipal autonomy (a volost) of North Vepses in Prionezhsky District of the Republic of Karelia, Russia. The autonomy was established on January 20, 1994, and it was discontinued in 2004. Its territorial centre was the village (selo) of Shyoltozero. Volost's population was 3,166 in (2002 Census), with the Veps population of 1,202.[1] The volost extended over the same territory as the Shyoltozero District from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The volost was municipally divided into three rural settlements (Shyoltozero, Shoksha, and Rybreka) comprising thirteen villages.[2]
