Mohmand (or Moomand) Tribe of Mohmand Agency - Tribes of FATA, Pakistan

Mohmand (or Moomand) is a big Pashtun tribe of FATA, Pakistan. Though the centre of Mohmand tribe's population is at Mohmand Agency, a large number of Mohmands also live in Peshawar, Charsadda, Mardan and Afghanistan (Kunar & Nangarhar).
The Mohmand tribe, in addition to its own sub-tribes, has a number of Affiliated clans and Vassal clans. The affiliated clans are now (for the most part) considered a part of the Mohmand tribe itself. The vassal clans, however, maintain their separate tribal identity. The most important and famous vassal of Mohmands is the SAFI tribe.
The genealogy of Mohmand tribe and its affiliated and vassal clans is as under:

Affiliated Clans of Mohmand
Hassan Khel (Wudredunki)
Aipai Kor
The Dawezais  and Utmanzais were historically divided into two factions:
1)    Wudredunki i.e. settled ones. These people had permanent living areas in Mohmand limits.
2)    Kuchi i.e. on the move. These people had a nomadic life style. They shuttled back and forth between Nangarhar and Mohmand.
Note: This situation has, however, changed and the tribal territories and resting grounds are well defined. The Kuchi movements have seized.
