Qatar is home to a number of tribal families in addition to the ruling al-Thani family. The latter received exceptional rights and privileges, including exemption from the pearl taxation. Doha neighborhoods are effectively tribal neighborhoods and the family council, or majlismakes decisions about both personal and community matters.
Where electoral systems exist, most citizens vote according to their tribe; this divides representative institutions along tribal lines, helping to diffuse dissent. The al-Khalifa, a branch of the Utubi Arabs from Central Arabia, migrated to Kuwait and from there expanded their trading, fishing, and piracy activities into Bahrain and northern Qatar. By the 19 th century, they were the dominant family in the Northern Gulf region.
Under the al-Khalifa, the northwestern city of Zubarah served as the economic center of Qatar. The rise of the Doha-based al-Thani family and its successful efforts to separate Qatar from the al-Khalifa-led Bahrain shifted the balance of power and the center of trade to the south.
This centuries-old tribal rivalry continues, embodied by the dispute between Bahrain and Qatar over the Hawar Islands. However, there is an extensive web of intermarriage between the two families and today, the al-Khalifa are considered the second most powerful tribe in Qatar. The al-Attiyah are another historically important family that have also strategically married into the al-Thani family. The mother of former Sheikh Hamad was a member of the al-Attiyah family. The family is historically associated with the army.
The al-Sudan tribe accompanied the al-Khalifa on their migration from Arabia, settling in in northern Qatar where they undertook both agricultural and fishing activities. They are among the oldest of the tribes, as evidenced by their domestic presence in a central Doha neighborhood. The Bani Khalid were a powerful Arab tribe that asserted their independence from the Ottoman Empire in the 19 th century.
In Qatar they established fishing villages and ruled much of al-Hasa and Qatar before the rise of the al-Sauds. They are among the oldest of the tribes but have lost almost all of their influence. The Al-Musallam have the longest recorded history in Qatar. An Ottoman source from the 16 th century designates a member of the family as the Sheikh of Qatar. They dominated the northern Qatar settlements of al-Huwaila and Zubara until the arrival of the Utubi al-Khalifa.
However, by the s, they were outnumbered by the al-Thanis and other allied tribes. The al-Kuwari family shares a common ancestor with the al-Thanis and cooperates closely with the ruling family. This makes them highly influential and results in appointment to important government posts. Christopher M. Qatar: Background and US Relations. Allen Fromherz. Mehran Kamrava. Rosemarie Said Zahlan.

Bader Abdullah Darwish Fakhroo.Ghanim Al-Sulaiti, the year-old owner of the Evergreen Organics cafe in Doha, Qatar, sits at a table about to bite into his burger.
The burger, forged from vegetables, beans and grains, is percent vegan. But along with a BS degree, he came away from his time in America with a new mindset.
Intrigued, he bought the book and tried a few recipes. Gradually he noticed he was feeling stronger and more energized — and soon a plant-based diet had become a way of life. A sampling of menu items from Evergreen Organics — Beetroot Ravioli and Avocado Love — nutritious, delicious and percent meat-free. Along with rising incomes from oil fortunes, supermarket shelves started to fill with items imported from all over the world and Qataris embraced foods rich in fat and sugar — causing diabetes and obesity rates to surge.
Ignoring the skeptics, the pair opened Evergreen Organics inserving an all-day menu, plus smoothies and fresh juices. Evergreen Organics took off, becoming the go-to place among young Qataris. As their clientele grew, Evergreen Organics became more than a trendy eatery.
It kick-started a movement as people of varying ages and social strata were introduced to a new way of eating. They come in big groups and sit at big tables together. A number of customers began requesting recipes so they could experiment with vegan cuisine at home, and the cafe became a hub for swapping advice on adopting a vegan lifestyle. But running a plant-based menu on the arid Gulf Coast is challenging.
But understanding the prices is part of the shift in attitude, Al-Sulaiti explains. Meanwhile, Al-Sulaiti is broadcasting his message to other realms.
In Octoberhe established the Good Vibe Foundation, which operates a vegan cafe in Cambodia — another country with a meat-centric diet — with the aim of supplying 10, schoolkids with nutritious meals and educating them about healthy food choices. He also launched Botany, a line of vegan, ethical skin care products. A plant-based enterprise that takes root in the desert is a major win for veganism, even if the number of unreformed carnivores in the Gulf will probably always outstrip kale-and-cucumber smoothie fans.
