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.
