The Tanoli (Hindko/Urdu: تنولی‎, تناولی; Hindustani: تنولي) are a tribe living mostly in the Hazara area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.[1] They form the majority of the population of Lassan Nawab union council.[2] The Tanoli describe themselves either as Pashtuns from the Ghazni area or as Barlas Turks.[3] The Tanoli submitted to British colonial rule in the 1840s.[1]
