Abstract:The Hadanduwa are the largest tribe among the Beja, with a population of about 260,000. They are situated roughly in the middle of the Beja country, i.e. between the Amar'ar to the north, the Bishariyin to the north-west and the Bani 'Amir to the south and the south-east. The Hadanduwa territorial system reflects the segmented lineage structure which the tribal genealogies present. The ownership of land is highly valued in this society, and the Hadanduwa have developed a complicated customary law, oslif, to regulate the system of land ownership and the allocation of its uses. Sections: Territorial system - Inter-population relations - The Hadanduwa and other Beja tribes - Hadanduwa-Rasha'ida relations - The Hadanduwa and the urban population in the Qash Delta.
