Kaningkom-Nindem of Nigeria

Introduction / History
Nikyob and Nindem people live on ancestral lands in central Nigeria's Kaduna State. Kaduna was named for the abundance of crocodiles in the River Kaduna. The state consists of a rolling plateau crossed by several major rives.

The region has two well-defined seasons of about six months each: a dry, windy season (November through March), and a rainy, wet season (April through October). Rainfall is heavier in the southern and northern regions. During both seasons, tall grasses and big trees prevail across vast savannahs that cover the state.

Though the capital, also named Kaduna, is a major industrial center for the state, most Nikyob are subsistence farmers. They grow various nuts, vegetables and grains and raise cattle, chickens, and sheep. Some hold salaried public jobs.

The Nikyob people seldom migrate. They practice moral purity and love to dance and have celebrations. Christianity was first introduced in 1925. Today more than 90 percent of the population is Christian. Only 1 percent practice Islam or their traditional ethnic religion.

The Nikyob and Nindem are closely related culturally and geographically and their while their speech has a few differences they both understand each other well so that they can share the same literature.

What are their beliefs?
Christianity was first introduced in 1925. Today more than 90 percent of the population is Christian. Only 1 percent practice Islam or their traditional ethnic religion.
