Idau Aish

Ida-u-Aish (Dwaish), a large group of confederate Tuareg tribes, West Sahara, extending southwards to the banks of the Senegal. As descendants of the old Gnesiraa Confederacy, they were formerly the most powerful of all the Tuareg people in this region; but owing to internal strife they lost their pre-eminence early in the sixteenth century. At present they are divided into two hostile factions. the Sherdtits and Abakdks, scattered in isolated communities as far north as the Sus Valley, Morocco.
