"The Hausa Culture is located mostly in northwestern Nigeria and parts of southwestern Niger they call Hausaland. There are several large cities around Hausaland. The population is the largest in West Africa consisting of over 20 million because of their intermarriages and constant interaction with different peoples. While most of the Hausa live in Hausaland, some of the people are found scattered from West Africa all the way to the Congo Republic settled temporarily as traders or sometimes even permanently." - From Minnesota State University - http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/cultural/oldworld/africa/hausa.html Hausa People "Origin myths among the Hausa claim that their founder, Bayajidda, came from the east in an effort to escape his father. He eventually came to Gaya, where he employed some blacksmiths to fashion a knife for him. With his knife he proceeded to Daura where he freed the people from the oppresive nature of a sacred snake who guarded their well and prevented them from getting water six days out of the week."

Extractions: Library Catalog African Ethnicities Please note that I have a separate page available on African languages A number of Web pages have been produced by members of indigenous minority and majority ethnic groups world-wide. Rather than primarily serving as academic, encyclopedic, or anthropological resources, they are often self-promotional, but several provide excellent information and rigorous documentation. This is a small collection of such pages produced primarily by Africans, along with some material produced by others. Most often, these African ethnic group home pages are a direct expression of individual members of the group, but in several cases represent an academic, official, or institutional point of view. If you are looking for an "objective" presentation, these links may not be the best sources for your work. Nevertheless, most have very good cultural, historical, and other background information, and many provide links to related sites that you may also find useful.

Extractions: Sourcebook Africa is both the most clearly defined of continents - in its geography - and the hardest to pin down in historical terms. Human beings originated in Africa and, as a result, there is more diversity of human types and societies than anywhere else. It is not possible, in any non-ideological way, to claim any one of these peoples or societies as more essentially "African" than others; nor is it possible to exclude a given society as "not really African". On this site historical sources on the history of human societies in the continent of Africa are presented, when available, without making prejudgements about what is "African". This page is a subset of texts derived from the three major online Sourcebooks listed below. For more contextual information, for instance about the Islamic world, check out these web sites.

Extractions: [Cool Teen Sites] West Africa - Mariage Rites and Ages Marriage West Africans generally perceive marriage as an alliance between two kinship groups and only secondarily a union of individuals. (Akande 1979, Dunabar, 1983). Some Muslim ethnic groups, such as the Serer in Senegal, or the Songhay in Mali, Niger, and Nigeria, are exogamous, preferring to marry outside their lineages. In Nigeria, Islamic law prohibits marriage between Muslim men and animist women, though Muslim men may marry Christian women. Muslim Nigerian women may only marry other Muslim men. In Senegal, Tukulor men adhere to the Quaranic injunction against marrying pagan women. Dyula men do marry pagan women, but Dyula women do not marry pagan men. Other groups have very specific rules against marrying outside of the ethnic group, rather than outside the Islamic religion. Among the Malinke, a group of some four million Muslims in several coastal countries, men can marry women who are not Malinke, but women may only marry Malinke men. Similarly the Jahanka allow their men to marry non-Jahanka women, but women may only marry Jahanka men (Weeks 1984).

Extractions: CHAPTER 2: SOCIAL CONTEXT OF AFRICAN THEOLOGY 1: Socio-Historical Survey Ancient Egypt developed the first of the great civilizations of world history. Egypt had already a long and illustrious history by the time ancient Greece reached its apex, and it is well established that Greek thinkers acknowledged their debt to ancient Egypt. Much has been written on Egypt and it need not be repeated here, except perhaps to mention that much current African and African-American scholarship is currently in the process of reappropriating Egypt as a specifically African civilization, in which the Cushites and black peoples of southern Egypt played a major role. The "Afrocentric Hypothesis", as advanced by Cheik Anta Diop and his more recent African-American exponent, Molefi Asante, states that Egypt was the source of all the significant cultural ideas of the civilizations which followed it, Persia, Greece, Rome, etc., and that all of these ideas came from an African source in Egypt and the southern Nile region (see Diop 1954, 1974 and Asante 1987). While some of the more extreme ideas of the "Afrocentrists" remain controversial in historical scholarship, they are bringing the role of black Africa in the ancient world out of obscurity into the realm of debate, which in itself advances the achievement of Africans and has shed light on the manner in which Euroamerican scholarship has systematically denied and suppressed information about Africa's past greatness, a greatness which included the empires of Egypt, Nubia, Ethiopia, Mali, Songhay, Timbuctoo, and Zimbabwe.

Extractions: Peanuts are a main export crop among states in the Sahel, but peanut farming is difficult for the environment because: Hint (A) peanuts deplete key nutrients out of the soil, forcing farmers to continually seek new land. (B) peanuts grow underground, requiring soil to be overturned at harvest time when dry winds are more likely to carry away fine topsoil. (C) peanut roots hold in topsoil, creating mud during the rainy season that clogs irrigation systems and increases risks of mudslides. A and B only All of the answers provided. Since most household energy needs (cooking, heating, etc.) are met by burning wood, all of the following statements are true EXCEPT: Hint Women and children in some areas spend hours each day gathering wood for fuel. In some communities, village women have organized into groups to plant trees to meet future energy needs.
