peoples of Africa are often described in terms of their ethnic
background or their languages. There are several thousand ethnic groups in Africa, ranging in physical stature from the short Pygmies to the tall Maasai, each with its own cultural traditions.
Here are only a few of them.
note: Some of the peoples
and associations presented here are so closely related that more than
one topic heading may apply. For example, The Akan people are
given a page of their own, yet the Asante ( Ashanti ) are also an Akan
people, as are the Akuapem. So, a full search for the 'Akan' may
involve looking at pages dedicated to sub-groups as well. Some
sub-group pages may contain only a link or two, but they are still part
of a much larger picture.
You will find a similar relationship among some of other peoples
listed here. This is a case where a little advanced knowledge of
the subject may be an advantage when using these pages.
