Hazarbuz is a Pashtun tribe sub section of Khawezai Momand GhoryaKhel primarily found in the Rodat District of Nangarhar , Kabul , Mazar-i-sharif and Kunduz in Afghanistan.


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]
