Kanuri-Saharan Cluster – Profile
  • The Kanuri people live largely in the lands of the former Bornu Empire, which was a major state of Nigeria from 1380–1893. Kanuri was the major language of the Bornu Empire. Some ethnic groups in this cluster regard themselves as distinct from the Kanuri, but they share a common history with the Kanuri.
  • The Kanuri region includes portions of Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
  • Kanuri peoples are predominantly Sunni Muslim. They became Muslim in the 11th century.
