The Rashaida is a tribe of ethnic Bedouin Arabs descending from Hawazin native to the Hejaz region of Saudi Arabia. In 1846, many Rashaida migrated from the Hejaz region in present-day Saudi Arabia into what is now Sudan. The Rashaida are also the smallest ethnic group currently present in Eritrea.
