Mumuye

Categories: Ethnicities

The Mumuye were pushed southwards into the hills of eastern Nigeria during the Fulani holy wars, which extended from the 17th century into the early 19th century. The relative isolation of individual communities remains today and individual lineages still identify with totemic spirits.
