Well OmarBah is from Guinea and I understand him 100%, he speaks the Dialect FoutaDjaaloore (Foutajaloore).

There is an association, it's called KJPF (Kawtal Jangoobe Pulaar Fulfulde).

well for the bororo (nomadic fulani) the "shluh" on their faces are usually very many sometimes and mean different things : beautification or the usual identification of family, clan etc

Halima Barry, are your parents originally from Garoua or from Mali or Guinea?
I have seen you write " mi nanataa fulfude" or " debbo pullo" instead of " pullo debbo" which is what most nigerian fulbe use.
Glad to see another one of us on this forum.
But Dendiraawo, us Wesr Africans do not tribes anymore, you find those in east Africa. Tribes and clans are something of the past, at least in most parts of west Africa. I think the term ethnic group is more appropriate. For example there used to be tribes among Mande, Yorubas, Igbos, Fulanis but now the tribes have disappear to give place to a broader identity, the ethnic group.
Now coming back to your question, I am a Pullo from Guinea living in the United States. There is a growing community of fulbe here.

It started in Europe (I think Belgium) but has made its way into Africa with representatives from each country with Fulani.
