Abstract:'A note about the Fulani in Sudan' There is evidence of Fulani living in the Sudan for at least two centuries. They first came as pilgrims on their way to Mecca or for other religious reasons (Mahdism...). In the 20th century, political and economic motivations, ranging from the conquest of Nigeria to the development of the Sudan, have become decisive. Although a few studies (e.g. by Maiurno, Roseires) have been made about sedentary Fulani in Dar Fur and Blue Nile, the nomadic Fulani who entered Southern Kordofan after 1920 have not attracted scholarly attention. Since 1950, they have been quarreling over pastures with Arab tribes (Rufa'a, Kenana...) in the Blue Nile Province and along the Ethiopian border from Kurmuk to Gedaref. [Abstract journal]
