SHILLUH, or SHLUH (" vagabonds "), the name given by the Arabized Moors to the Berber peoples of southern Morocco. They occupy chiefly the province of Sus. The name is said to be a corruption of dshluh (pl. ishldh), a camel-hair tent. They are of fine physique, strong and wiry, and true Berbers in features and fairness. They are as a rule shorter than the Berbers of Algeria (see BERBERS and MOROCCO).
