Kashubian history has always been tied to their own accomplishments.
And they will continue to exist, as long as the very name “Kashubians”, their language,
customs, and culture hold value to them.

prof.Gerard Labuda

The terms Kashubism, Kashubia, or Kashubians used here are not always precise and show signs of some oversimplification. The main reason for this phenomenon is the fact that of all Slavic nations living in this territory, only Kashubians were able to preserve their unique language and culture. As such, although, the term “Kashubian” does not appear in written texts until the 13th century.
