In the article, the author describes an evaluation regarding the identity of the indigenous population of Upper Silesia against the specific of this region background. First of all, he focuses on the evaluation concerning the identity of this group after 1989 – on the multidimensional Silesianess. He shows the phenomenon of joining the German minority with many Silesians, which creates the regional movements especially Silesian organizations that promote Silesianess and strive for acknowledgment of the Silesian nationality and Silesian dialect for the language. In retrospect, an increasing popularity of such organizations may be noticed among the Silesians due to their nationality declarations. According to census 2002 and 2011, the Silesians represent the largest minority group that so far has unregulated legal status. For years, Silesian organizations endeavor to change this situation. They try to dispose the Polish authorities to amend the act on national and ethnic minorities and on the regional languages to find in the act the Silesians and their dialect receive the language status.
