  1. I hope one day people would stop using the word tribe to describe the various ethnic groups in Africa, or otherwise we would have to use it too to describe the various communities in Europe like French, German, Celts, Gypsies, Slavs etc etc.
    I am really impressed that you have been able to list such a huge number of all the ethnic groups in the ... Read moreSudan. Good job. However I think you have forgotten to include a few more like Balanda, Jur Modo, Acholi and others that I just can't seem to remember right now.
    My ethnic group is Luo (Jur-Chol) which has already been included. Thanks.

  2. Thanks Brother Chris... Yes, we should elevate ourselves to be a nation, not tribes in one country.. such a process will come once our national blending is done.. therefore, I celebrate the cultural mix and diversity as address of richness and tolerance.. I know that many groups were missed, and looking for more comments to make the list further comprehensive.. thanks a lot.. Be Blessed..

  3. it needs a commitee of great rational brains to work hard putting aside any tribal or political games and start influencing or"brain washing" the rest of "Folks". afterwards, for sure we will endup having a united great empire~!.

  4. My Dear Ibrahim.. I guess it requires ready-made brains to be provided on cheap affordable rates.. It is unprecedented shameful chaos; which Sudan will never come after as one intact piece.. It is the End of Sudan, a title would enrich any library or academic research on the systematic and professional hypocrisies in the modern world.. Thanking Allah I have no kids, who would ask tough embarrassing questions..!! Yet I could not give up the Sudanese Passport.. but shortly will have to, for compulsory country name change..!!

  6. Thanks for the comments.. It was there since Oct 09.. Announced several times, yet almost no one cares..!! Information is the basis for any logic or scientific endeavor.. Politics of Wanassa had polluted and undermined all prospectus on the Sudanese ID, Culture and Way of life.. Our new breed of politician are using Chat rooms to plan for the future.. I think chat rooms are the greatest curse of cyber world..!! Should I call it Cyber-Wanassa..?

  7. Chat rooms aren't the right place to plan for anything related to people's life..especially for us as Sudanese...we should go for Documented stuff to able to Audit!

  8. Why "especially for us as Sudanese.." we are no special in the world..! However, Chats or Wanassa is what we do for both private or public endeavors.. Admitting the wrongdoing is the only gate for the righteous doing... and future; if any..!

  9. Because we have been suffering from "oral culture" that prevented us from having "enough" documentation for our life...most of Sudan history books are written by non-Sudanese! Am I right?

  11. Many nations have their history undocumented but in folkloric formats, most African, Asian and Indian Americans.. Preserved folklore is read as documentation too.. yet; they are not confused as our new generations are today.. There are many negative issues that require educated brave hearts to address.. How many we have..? I had spoken the truth, and lost my Party's ID for that, yet my security file is copied among three counties, at least..!! lol

  12. Hi Adil,

    I just want to thank you for incredible work you did with our tribes in Sudan. Good job brother, but stay away from sub or ethnic groups because that might give you headache later. Also, read about a guy name salva dut, he is from small tribe in Sudan.

    Blessings,

  13. Hi! Thanks for the post. great effort. I did notice that some Northern tribes are missing (i.e.: Jaa'lia, Jimoeya, Majazib, etc..) Also Ii think you used Wikipedia as the "only" reference. maybe if you had checked with other references, maybe Sudanese Books you could have had included more tribes. Thanks again :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for your kind words...
    Yes, I only used Wikipedia as reference..
    Yes, there are many others to refer to..
    Yes, much effort is required to make it a reliable reference..
    Yes, I'm busy and old enough to make it may sole concern..
    It was meant to be inspirational and fun..!!
    Good luck for the all sudan's fan; who might use my work for better tomorrow...!

  15. Salam, I'm Pandu
    Currently doing a research on Blue Nile State in Sudan, and came across an ethnic group called Zanarkha-Fonj. I could not find any reference on this one. Don't even know if it is considered Arab or non-Arab group. Would be grateful if anyone can help. Thank you.

  18. This is interesting, the first time I see such a comprehensive list, I was thinking in terms of genetic traits and if there was any population wide exploration to be done then surely this list is going to be one source to go to...

  19. Thanks for this well done job. This is a good start. The next step for you is to try learning the Sudanese languages so that you can create your own rule: You must know what is a clan and what is a tribe--Are Arab, Dinka, Fur, Tama are these nations or tribes? Under the language of tama nation you will find many sub tribes who speak the same language such as Gimir, Erenga, Marariet, Assugor and other 20 sub tribes who all speak the same language--Under Dinka nation or tribe you will also find other---therefore this work seems very complicated. Unless you identify what is a tribe what is a clan what is a nation, it would very difficult to do this research? You have to go out and speak to people listen and to learn what they speak? If they speak the same language some might turn out to be clans. Any way you have done a very good job and I hope you continue this work

  20. Can anyone help me??

    I want to know about my tribe but I cant find any history on it. All I know about them is that they are from Al Khandaq, Sudan. My parents told me supposedly that they migrated from Hadramaut, yemen.

    Thanks in advance.
