The Lahiri peoples form a macro-ethnic group descending from common Ekuo-Lahiri ancestors in Baredina. The Lahiri peoples constitute around half(?) of the modern native population of Lahan. A small diaspora of Lahiri exist as well in Nevira and the rest of Lower Ekuosia, as well as other bodies on the Saru sea including Jute northern Ystel.
The Lahiri first arrived in Lahan around BCE 4000 via the Sañu strait, marking the third (or more) successive waves of large-scale migration from Puzimm to Lahan. They brought marked advances in agriculture, architecture, and toolmaking with them, allowing them to set up (small) permanent settlements, displacing the earlier inhabitants in many choice areas.
