Hazara tribes

The Hazara people people are an ethnic group who mainly inhabit and originate from the Hazarajat region of Afghanistan, however there are significant populations of Hazaras in Pakistan, notably around Quetta where a large population has been established since the 18th century. Furthermore, there are many Afghan refugees fleeing the conflict in Afghanistan who have in recent years settled in Iran and further bolstered the Hazara community in Pakistan.

Some sources list eight overarching Hazara tribes, of which five the Daikundi, Dai Zangi, Polada, Jaghuri, and Uruzgani, are referred to as Sad-i Qabar ("original tribes"). In addition to these five are the Dahla, Dai Khitai, and Dai Chopan.[1]
