Taturu is the name of a wideely-dispersed indigenous population located in the Great Rift Valley of Tanzania. They are often reffered to as the Datooga (sometimes spelled Tatooga).
The best-known and most numerous sub-tribe of the Datooga peoples are the Barabaig, who reside chiefly in a part of the northern volcanic highlands dominated by Mount Hanang (3,418 metres). The Barabaig were forcibly evicted from the Basotu Plains in the 1990s to make room for a large-scale wheat-growing project of the Canadian and Tanzanian governments.
Other Taturu peoples include: Bajuta, Gisamjanga, Tsimajeega, Rootigaanga, Buraadiiga and Bianjiida.
