Tribe, Clan, & Ethnic Genealogies

Tribalism is not a feature of every ethnic group in Afghanistan; and even within tribally organized groups tribalism is a flexible concept that allows variations to exist and changes to occur as kinship groups rise and fall.

The following list should not be considered a definitive list of ethnic groups in Afghanistan. Designations such as "tribe", "clan", "khel", "ethnic group" are often disputed; the following designations should not be construed as definitive. The genealogies are working documents, added and edited as our research is completed. Clicking on the links below will open a PDF file.
