Hazarbuz is a Pashtun tribe primarily found in the Rodat District of Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan.

History[edit]

Until the 1920s, the Hazarbuz lived principally as herders, concentrating on sheep (despite their name, which means "a thousand goats"). Because their migration routes coincided with a major arm of the Silk Road, they became more involved in transporting and then trading, typically bringing tea from Bukhara and India into Afghanistan.[1]
