Awrajja (አውራጃ) were the third-level country subdivisions which subdivided the Provinces of Ethiopia prior to 1996.

- Awrajja

As early as 1890, under the reign of Menelik II, the homeland of the Yejju was organized into an Ethiopian province (awrajja) named for them.

- Yejju

The decline in the prestige of the dynasty led to the semi-anarchic era of Zemene Mesafint ("Era of the Princes"), in which rival warlords fought for power and the Yejju Oromo enderases (, "regents") had effective control.
