I disagree with that. There is no connection. I would believe if he said Bayanjidda came from Chad. but Ethiopia is impossible. some of the stories have been twisted with like all stories.

Pagan, do elaborate. Couldn't the Hausas have migrated to Western Africa, couldn't East Africa had been larger, spanning more into Central and North Africa, or couldn't West Africa have been larger and thus closer to East Africa? Do elaborate.

There is no one that hates the term "Hausa-Fulani" more than me, trust me. You are either Hausa or you are Fulani. Unless.......

You have a father who is Hausa and a mother who is Fulani (or vice-versa) but even then in Nigeria you won't be labelled as Hausa-Fulani).
What if you had Hausa and Fulani ancestry and you desired to respect them both what would you be called? Do you just choose for yourself or does it matter what tribe your father is from? If you choose to embrace your Fulani ancestry does that mean that you have automatically disavowed from your Hausa family or vice-versa?
Culture / Re: Pagan9ja - I Want To Clarify Something For You by Mlle: 7:24pm On Jun 12, 2017
Fula you misunderstand me. i said i am a Tribal not a tribalist arent tribalists those who try to pick up fights with other tribes anyways yes all what you said is valid but let me make one point clear.

I PAGAN 9JA consider it the highest crime as of assimilation. i am TOTALLY 100% against it because i believe that we as Tribals may do whatever we want, but it is our duty to first perform our tribal duties and social responsibilities, i.e., to continue the survival of our , should i unliterally use the word "species", we must:

- marry within our own people (not relatives).

- we must preserve and practice our traditions, cultures and religions.

- we must help our fellow tribespeople when in need.

- not only our people, we must form unity with all other tribes "IN THE WORLD", to protect, preserve and nurture our traditions because we are the original people as was meant to be prior to christianity, islam and monotheistic form of judaism.

only when we do the above, do we have scop of surviving into the next century. afetrall, we have certainly made it into the 21st century. as for the rest you said, i 100% agree with it.

and btw Traditionalist is a term used for those practicing traditional Pagan religion. i think we must invent a new term for this. undecided

Very informative and thorough Pagan. I'm an African American, a diaspora African if you will, and being raised in a democratic capitalist society I can truly say that I fully agree with you. To often does the democratic liberal ideas of the West invade other people's individuality and freedom teaching Western ways and upholding Euro-centric dogma as the basis for basic human decency and overall freedom. To me true democracy is accomplished when people have the right to choose their beliefs, their lifestyle, etc and 'not' be afraid of being judged by their peers or anyone else for their truly unique or unconventional choice simply because it is not 'modern' or it is 'old'. Haven't spent about 500 yrs or more in this great nation I somewhat have an idea of how a none Euro-centric culture could be deemed 'sinful', primitive, wrong, beastly, wicked, and just plain not attractive to the populist nor to billionaires pockets and thus destroyed. For example, I found it quite interesting how while I was researching a Fulani subset that the text read that this tribe respects women so much that they nearly forbid the men to touch the women or speak to them unless spoken to by them or someone else in their family. Now I don't know if that is even a true description of said tribe but the shock and awe of the European scholars when they realized that a tribe outside of the western hemisphere, who's people were not of Caucasian ancestry would show great respect to women. They didn't need the feminist movement to try to show their women love. Like truth be told many indigenous people respect their women. Many people around the globe do not purposely show bias or disrespect for a certain group of people whether it be race, gender, sexual orientation, etc, with the goal of maliciously abasing and destroying those people, especially if they belong to their group. And often times within these cultures many things aren't considered to be biased, disrespectful, or a great disadvantage until outside influences imply so. I doubt ALL African village chiefs hate their people because they promote their rural culture that is sometimes devoid of modern amenities, they do it because it is what they know as righteous, because they feel it is best. And who's to say it isn't. LOL I'm going to leave that argument alone. Their might be problems in Africa concerning certain issues but that is all across the globe, the inequality comes in when Africa in particular is always painted as the most primitive, evil, destructive, backwards, none-progressive, biased, shackling continent in the world. Now I'm an African American and I can assure you that we as a people have faced some great bias and difficulties here, so I know it is a lie when they paint Africa as the source of all misery. Just saying it's just such a pain to constantly have to consume so much negativity concerning my Mother country because it's always been a constant, eroding our souls and teaching self-hate. Nothing African is good here, not even today. Now it's the corrupt politicians. Word to my African brothas and sistas who feel their situation is bad, I truly understand but keep your head up for yourself, your people, us, and the preservation of our culture because it could be worse. We know all too well how it feels to have no place to call home, not background, and no support, having to be a Queen or a King and being forced to call another man's castle your home when your not even welcomed. Remember you could have Donald Trump for President. grin No shade to my country, America, but progress is made when a problem is admitted. Keep up the good work. smiley

I once saw on a website that Hausas live inside of these tiny houses pictured, could you please give some incite on that and why someone would make such an assumption?
Hausa granary.
Events / Re: Event Decor by Mlle: 2:39pm On Dec 10, 2016
I'm helping decorate a party that has an African theme, and I don't mean safaris and zebra or leopard print, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas. We seriously do not want the Safari stuff everywhere, we would like it to be about our culture and not about white ppl traveling Africa like freak spectators poking thighs and taking pictures. The party will be informal and dim if not dark. Since we were ripped from our culture some 200 or more years ago I would like to ask the experts.
Thanks, please reply asap. smiley cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy
