Daan, a term applied to three different Berber peoples in Algeria, who are respectively distinguished as Tiled Sgar, Uled Bedar, and Uled Ghamrez Daans. They occupy a mountainous region some 20 miles south-east of Guelma, about the headwaters of the Melah, affluent of the Seybouse. All are closely-related members of the Shawiya branch of the Berber family. The Uled-Dhans of Kennugha, near Mount Shukehof, belong to the same connection. In their territory are some Roman ruins in the neighbourhood of several still frequented thermal (sulphurous) waters.

“The meanest and most contemptible person whom we behold is the offspring of heaven, one of the children of the Most High; and, however unworthily he may behave, so long as God hath not passed on him a final sentence, He will have us acknowledge him as one of His; and, as such, to embrace him with a sincere and cordial affection.”
–Henry Scougal, The Life of God in the Soul of Man
