The Fulbe are also known as the Fulani Nigeria, the Fula or, in Francophone West Africa, the Peul. They are a cluster of people groups who have a unique culture and value system. Their origins are obscure, but their generally lighter skin color indicates a mixture of races. They emerged in the region of what is now Senegal, but spread east across the Sahel. Their language is West African and links them to the Bantu peoples. Sunni Islam is practiced by most of the people groups within this cluster.
