|History of Morocco|
The word "Azwafit" (Arabic: أزوفيت) is derived from the Arabic word "zfata", means "To protect from the Zfata". The Zfata is a group of people which claim false payments for the transportation of goods.
The Azwafit are part of the greater Tekna confederation. Azwafit is a tribe which was accustomed to escort and protect caravans against the payment of "Ztata" or "Zfata", whence the name of Azwafit. Because they became part of a bigger Berberian tribe, the Arab subtribes are partially Berberised and speak Berber today.
