I know the human races, and I presume the elf races all came from Atmora, but what about the beast races? Are we native to Tamriel or did we come from somewhere else?

I think that Argonians lived in Tamriel before any other race, because when the Altmer started exploring Tamriel, they found Argonians already living there in tribes.

The Argonians and Khajiit are native to Tamriel, as far as we know. You seem to have your lore mixed up, though. The Nedes came from Atmora, the Aldmer came from Aldmeris, and the Yokudans came from Yokuda. All playable races, however, evolved on Tamriel. However, it's possible that the Aldmer are the same as the Altmer, the Nedes are the same as the Nords, and the Yokudans are the same as the Redguards.

The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.

Well it's actually a possibility that the Khajiit race are actually a form of Elf. They believe that the current elves and khajiits are from the same pre-evolutionary species. Yet they have evolved differently over the years into two separate species..

I'd say that the Khajiit are an old elf Race,but maybe the Knatanen Flu,changed them,or maybe it's like with the Dwemers,maybe they changed their look,but they have long ears,like all Elfs.

What about the Dwemers and Ayleids? Where did they come from? Did they mix with other races? Do they even exist anymore - anywhere, or are they completely extinct?

Argonians were created by the Hist. A race of sentient trees from blackmarch. Its nicely covered in ES novels Infernal City and The Lord of Souls

There's one dwemer left in the corprusarium in morrowind (vvardenfell) In the mushroom building of Tel Fyr but even he doesnt give exact details on how the dwemer dissapeared even though he has some thoughts on it. http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Disap...he_Dwarves http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Dwemer check this out to get a little more of an understanding of dwemer dissapearance but still in the game they are not that sure.

Although indigenous to The Black Swamps, the Saxhleel, "the people of the root", may have ancestry going as far back as Sithis and the Night Mother. Certainly The Hist has a connection with thier pre history, and as mentioned, Argonians are evolved in many different forms from the Hist.

Tribes

Argonians usually live in tribes, each having their own customs as well as differing appearances. There are a few known tribes:

Agacephs: Most have needle-like faces and vary in color from bright green to orange. Found in inner Argonia, near the Hist.

Archeins: During the era when other races tried to put plantations in Argonia, Archeins were very powerful, and made fortunes by selling other Argonians into slavery. Since the other races realized Argonia is unfit for plantations, they have gone bankrupt.

Paatru: Described as "toad-like", they live in the inner part of Argonia.

Sarpa: Described as being "winged", though it's unclear if this is meant literally or not. They live in the interior of Argonia.

Nagas: They are described as having "huge mouths filled with dripping needle-like fangs". Usually seven to eight feet tall, the Nagas appear to be more snake-like than other Argonians. When the other races were attempting to put plantations into Argonia, they generally acted as highway robbers; however, since the other races ceased trying to put plantations in Argonia, they have left the roads and have gone back into the inner swamps.

Ah, yes. I always forget that.

Well you could still be right. Maybe a group of elves from the motherland ventured to tamriel before the current set of Altmer did. So the Khajiit could still be considered natives, depending on how long they've been there.
