They live in the Tébessa area and other parts of eastern Algeria coextensive with ancient Numidia, as well as a few adjacent towns in Tunisia, they call themselves speak the Shawiya language. The Aurès Mountains served as a refuge for Berber peoples, forming a base of resistance against the Roman Empire, the Vandals, the Byzantine Empire and Arabs. Aurès was a district of Algeria that existed during and after the Algerian War from 1954 to 1962, it was in this region. The patriarch of Berbers is believed to be Madghacen, common ancestor of the Zenata and of the Botri as well. Ibn Khaldun identified the Zenata as Berbers. Modern historians rank this Berber region within the group of Numidians and Gaetuli or the much more ancient such as Meshwesh and Mazaxes, from whom formed the Zenata, the main inhabitants of the Aurès in the Middle Ages.

Chaoui clans known by Ibn Khaldoun were the Ifren, Djerawa, Abdalwadides and Awarba. According to de Slane, translator of the books of Ibn Khaldun, the term Chaoui/Shawi means "shepherd" and designates the Zenata Berbers. After the independence of Algeria, the Chaouis remained localized in the Auresian region, they are the second Berber-speaking group in terms of number of speakers, the first being the Kabyle. The Chaoui traditionally speak the Shawiya language, it belongs to the Berber branch of the Afro-Asiatic family, is a variety of the Zenati languages. Shawiya is a related cluster of dialects spoken in the Aurès region of eastern Algeria and surrounding areas including Batna, south Sétif, Oum El Bouaghi, Souk Ahras, Tébessa, the north part of Biskra; the Shawiya language, together with the Kabyle language, has begun to achieve some cultural prominence due to the Berber cultural and political movements in Algeria. Chaoui music is a specific style of Berber music; the Shawia dance is called Rahaba.

There are many 20th century singers, such as Aïssa Djermouni, Ali Khencheli, Ishem Boumaraf, Djamel Sabri, Houria Aïchi, etc. Chaoui painters and sculptors include Cherif Merzouki, Abdelkhader Houamel, Hassane Amraoui, Adel Abdessemed, Mohamed Demagh; the fantasia is a traditional exhibition of horsemanship in the Aurès performed during cultural festivals.
