The Libyan Arab people cluster encompasses Libyan and Cyrenaican Arabs (Cyrenaica is the historical name of the eastern region of Libya that self-declared autonomy in 2007). Additionally, there are small numbers of 'Wahati' or "people of the oasis" who inhabit oases in Egypt but are classified as Libyan Arabs. These desert dwellers are descendants of tribes who migrated to Egypt from the north coast of Libya and mingled with people from the Nile Valley.
