About the HAZARA: The Hazara Tribe is considered to be the oldest group of people who have continuously inhabited present day Afghanistan. They are said to have lived here well before national borders were established, even before Alexander the Great.
 
Because they frequently shared their traditions with other traders, Hazargi designs appear in  artwork and jewelry-making among many other tribal groups throughout Central Asia.
