Many of these tribes are descendants of the original invaders who came from Central Asia to settle in the Iranian Plateau, such as the Kurds, Bakhtiyaris, Lurs, Guilaks, and the Baluchs.
The largest tribal groups are the Kurds, who live in the province of Kurdistan in the northern Zagros area, the Lurs and the Bakhtiari, who live in the southern Zagros region, the Qashqai in Fars, the Turkoman in the northeast, and the Baluch in the southeast.
