Shala is one of the woredas in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. It was separated from Seraro woreda. Part of the Mirab Arsi Zone located in the Great Rift Valley, Shala is bordered on the south by Seraro, on the west by the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Region, on the north by Shala Lake which separates it from Arsi Negele, and on the east by Shashamene Zuria; its western boundary is defined by the course of the Bilate River. The administrative center of this woreda is Aje.


  1. Shala: 'Shala' was an ancient Sumerian goddess of grain and compassion. The symbols of grain and compassion combine to reflect the importance of agriculture in the mythology of Sumer, and the belief that an abundant harvest was an act of compassion from the Gods. Other traditions identify Shala as wife of the grain god Dagan, or consort of the storm god Ishkur/Adadthe. She carries a double-headed mace-scimitar embellished with lion heads.
  2. Shala is a tribe and region of northern Albania in the valley of Shala river. Results of historical and archaeological research confirm the claim of oral histories that ancestors of Shala came to the valley several centuries ago. Shala are considered as related to Kuči tribe because their ancestors came to Albania from the region of Kuči. In fact the origin of the name is derived from another Albanian language word, meaning infertile land. The religion of the tribe was Catholic while the tribe had around 3,000 members at the end of 19th century.
