  • Ethnic Groups in Kaduna State

    Kaduna State is populated by about 59 to 63 different ethnic groups, if not more, with the exactitude of the number requiring further verification through genuine field work [Hayab, 2014]. The question as in the last paragraph with the Hausa and Fulani as the dominant ethnic groups followed by at least 60 others. These groups include:

        Adara (dubbed Kadara)

        Amo

        Kanufi
        Kigono
        Kinugu
        Kitimi
        Kiwafa
        Kiwollo
        Koro
        Kuvori (called Surubu)
        Kuturmi

        Nandu
        Nduyah
        Numana
        Nindem
        Ningeshe
        Ninkyop
        Ninzo
        Nyenkpa (Yeskwa)
        Oegworok
        Pikal
        Pitti
        Ribang
        Rishuwa
        Rumada
        Ruruma
        Rumayya
        Shemawa * Hausa name?
        Sholio (Dubbed Marwa)
        Siyawa (Bauchi state?)
        Takad, (Attakar)
        Tarri
        Tsam (Chawai)

    Available records show that Christian mission activities in the area began formally in the 1900s with the establishment of Sudan Interior Mission (S.I.M.) in the Ham town of Har Kwain (Kwoi), hence today these people groups are Mainly Christians. Culturally, the people groups of the then southern Zaria who are now Southern Kaduna, with some exception it must be acknowledged, share a lot in the cultural practices of marriage rites, naming, burial, farming, social organisations, kinship, etc. Until full scale research is undertaken, the diversity of Kaduna state remains blurred as some ethnic groups are so small in population that they are often overshadowed by the larger groups who live near them.[7]
