Sarakatsani [Greek] or Karakachani [Bulgarian]. One of the Balkan nomads. They traveled with their flocks from low winter pastures to high summer ones. They are found scattered over central and northern Greece, and also across the border into Macedonia, and Turkish and Bulgarian Thrace. They consider themselves to be pure Greek. They speak an archaic dialect of northern Greek, and hold themselves to be very distinct from the Aromanians and other nomadic peoples of the Balkans.
