Fulfulde

Background

Fulfulde is spoken by the Fula people of Niger. Many of the Fula are nomadic herdsmen of cattle, goats, and sheep. Others farm or work in a variety of art forms. The Fula continue to enforce a strict caste system, which divides people between nobles, tradesmen, and the descendents of slaves. During the years of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, noblemen captured people to ship to other countries as slaves. The descendents of those captured continue to be considered part of the slave caste. Fula are forbidden from marrying outside of their caste.
