Kale (Welsh Romanies)

The Kale (also Kalá, Valshanange) are a group of Romani people who reside in Wales. Many claim to be descendant of Abram Wood, who was the first Romani to reside permanently and exclusively in Wales in the early 18th century, though Romanies have appeared in Wales since the 15th century. Generally speaking, the Kale have employed a tribal structure in which a group of several family units would be under the authority of a male chieftain.
