Meet the Nupe tribe in Nigeria and their beautiful Costumes (Photos)

Ayodeleking01 2d

Tribe is a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader.

In the case of Nupe tribe, there are probably about 4.5 million Nupes, principally in Niger State. The Nupe language traditionally known as Tapa is also spoken in Kwara, Kogi and Federal Capital Territory. They are primarily Muslims, with a few Christians and followers of African Traditional Religion. The Nupe people have several local, traditional rulers. The Etsu Nupe (Bida) is not pure Nupe, his great grandfather from his father side is Fulani while the family of his mother was complete Nupe. His great grandfather from his father side came to rule the Bida in the 1806. They have no present capital, although they were originally based at Rabah and only moved to Bida in the nineteenth century.

Thier People have various traditions and many practices have changed as a result of The movements started by Usman Dan Fodio jihad of the 19th century, but they still hold on to some of their culture. Many Nupe people often have scarification on their faces (similar to an old Yoruba tradition), some to identify their prestige and the family of which they belong as well as for protection, as well as jewelry adornment. But these traditions are dying out in certain areas. Their art is often abstract. They are well known for their wooden stools with patterns carved onto the surface.

The Nupe were described in detail by the ethnographer Siegfried Nadel, whose book, Black Byzantium, remains an anthropological classic.

What a beautiful tribe
