Bedouin
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Bedouin, derived from the Arabic badawwi, a generic name for a desert dweller, is usually applied to the nomadic indigenous populations of the Negev, Sinai, Saharan and Arabian deserts.

The Bedouins were traditionally divided into related tribes, each ruled by a Sheik. Traditionally they would herd camels, sheep, and goats, while riding on highly prized horses, moving according to the seasons for grazing lands. For centuries and into the early 20th century the Bedouin were known for their fierce resistance to outside government and influence.
