 VEDIC PEOPLES
Yayati's story shows that the five Vedic people were born of an alliance of Aryan and Asuric kings, and their Angirasa and Bhrigu seers. 

Vrisha Parvan and Shukra appear to have come from southwest India, Gujarat, as the Bhrigus were descendants of Varuna, God of the sea, and have always been associated with this region of India (for example, their city Bhrigu kaccha or modern Baruch near Baroda). In the Puranic story their territory bordered on that of Yayati, who happened upon both Devayani and Sharmishta, while hunting. 

Hence three of the original five Vedic peoples had Asuric blood in them through their mother. Puru, whose group ultimately predominated, had Asuric blood, whereas the Yadus, who were most criticized in Vedic and Puranic literature, had no Asuric blood but rather that of the Brahmins.
