    This is a condensed list of some of the major ethnic groups. I will start first with West Africa since the bulk of our ancestors came from there. This list is by no way authoritative; I am working off my 14 years of study of the various ethnic groups. So there may be some missing info. I ask that please forgive my human failings in that regard. Plus, I'm typing this holding my baby daughter.



    West Africa

    1. Wolof, Lebu and Serer- Senegal (Dakar, Saint Louis, and northwestern coastal area of Senegal) mainly
    2. Hal-pulaaren (Fulani, Peul, Fulbe, Tukulor) - Senegal (Senegal River Valley), Mauretania, Gambia, Guinea, Mali, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Togo, Niger, Cameroon, Tchad, Sudan primarily.
    3. Mande-tan (Mandekan) cluster (Malinke, Bamana, Soninke, Bozo, Susu, Dyula, Dogon) - Mali, Gambia, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Mauretania, Burkina Faso
