Colonialism and the Emergence of Fulani Identity

In: Journal of Asian and African Studies

Abstract

Ethnicity is a process and not an event. People use it to achieve desired goals. During the Colonial period, the groups who became "The Fulani" negotiated and shaped their identity in conformity with British expectations in order to attain and ensure British support in maintaining their favored position in the colonial hierarchy.
