The Garre are a Somali pastoralist clan who live in Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They are sub-clan of the Digil clan.[1] Almost all speak the Garre language, though it may be secondary to the Maayspeaking sub-clan of Darrawe (Darrawa) who speak Maay as their first language. Their urban centers include Mandera, Moyale and El Wak. The Garre are divided into the Tuff and Quranyowa sub-clans. While the Tuffs are further divided into the Ali and Adola groups, the Quranyow are divided into the Asare and Furkesha.
