Beni Khirane

Beni Khirane (Arabic: بن خيران) is a Moroccan tribe of Hilali-Arab descent, who settled in Morocco in the 12th century. The tribe is part of the Tadla confederacy.


The Beni Khirane tribe live in the Tadla region of Morocco. They form part of the greater Beni Hilal (Arabic: بني هلال) tribe who crossed to the Maghreb in the 10th century. They were introduced in Morocco during the eleventh century under the reign of the Almohad. They are mainly farmers who have largely preserved a Bedouin spirit.
