People from all over the world who live in the mountains. They have a variety of cultures but their geographic location creates several simularities. Living in such tough terrain, hill people tend to be difficult to conquer and tough as nails. Due to their difficulty to assimilate into larger societies as well as being separated from each other due to large mountains. Hill people tend to have less loyalty to large official nations and more to their small tribes and in hill regions, this isolation cam lead to very diverse cultures. Some hill peoples include people of Nepal, Zomia in Southeast Asia, Chechnia in Russia, much of central Asia, Switzerland, the Apalations in the US, Atlas mountains in Morroco, and even the Favelas in Rio. The hill lifestyle can lead to freedom from the oppression and competion of mainstream civilization, but many hill people's also tend to be very poor or trapped by the isolation.
Afghans are true hill people. There are so many different cultures there and due to geography and being tough as nails, Afghanistan has fought off many much larger empires from the Mongols, Americans, and Soviets.

A short squat race, usually referred to 'extremely hairy'(think Captain Caveman). They feed on rock moss gathered from rolling stones with their specially adapted lower jaw and inscisors. Groups of these creatures called 'litters' consist of a mother (pregnant), father (toothless), and any number of children (molested). Hillbillies.
Do you see those hill people? They'll never get in this club dressed like that.

A group of people usually found in Northern New Jersey that have no drive to accomplish their goals, have odd quirks due to being sheltered their entire lives, may be over the age of 18 but they act as if they are 13, generally extremely attractive, find it odd if you move out of your parents house before the age of 30, and act as if their social skills are amazing but are more socially inept than a 40 year old playing WOW in his mothers basement.
Hill people are hot idiots.
