The Hazara people are native to the mountainous region of Hazarajat in central Afghanistan, although there are some living in areas of Pakistan and Iran. Most Hazara have adopted the cultures of the cities where they live, but are traditionally highland farmers and in the Hazarajat have retained their own customs and traditions which are more closely related to those of Central Asia.
