The Julas, also known as the Dyula, Diula, Joola, or Juula, are one of the Manding-speaking ethnic groups of West Africa. The Jula are a collection of peoples who today live in the northeastern and northern sections of Ivory Coast, in southwestern Burkina Faso, and across the border in Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, and Mali. Almost all Julas are Sunni Muslims. The Malinke-Jula people cluster includes several related people groups.
