The Habesha people ( Ḥabaśā, Amharic (H)ābešā, Ḥābešā; al-Ḥabašah) are a population group inhabiting the Horn of Africa. They include various related ethnic groups speaking languages belonging to the South Semitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic family. Members' cultural, linguistic, and in certain cases, ancestral origins trace back to the Kingdom of Dʿmt (usually vocalized Diʿamat) and the later Kingdom of Aksum.
