Now that plans for a Bantustan are in high gear , I’m trying to imagine how a nation with a cocktail of these people would look like :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
Nilotic Ethnic groups;source wikipedia
Nilotic people constitute the bulk of the population of South Sudan. The largest of the Sudanese Nilotic peoples are the Dinka, who have as many as twenty-five ethnic subdivisions. The next largest group are the Nuer, followed by the Shilluk.
The Nilotic people in Uganda include the Luo peoples(Acholi, Lango, Alur, Adhola and Kumam), Ateker peoples (Iteso, Karamojong and Lango, who despite speaking Luo, have cultural Atekere origins) Sebei and Kakwa
In East Africa, the Nilotes are often subdivided into three general groups:
[li]The Plain Nilotes: they speak Maa languages and include the Maasai, Samburu and Turkana[/li][li]The River Lake Nilotes: the Joluo (Kenyan Luo), who are part of the larger Luo group[/li][li]The Highland Nilotes: subdivided into two groups, the Kalenjin and the Datog[/li][LIST]
[li]Kalenjin: Elgeyo, Kipsigis, Marakwet, Nandi, Pokot, Sabaot, Terik and Tugen [Keiyo][/li][li]Datog: represented mainly by the Barabaig and small clusters of other Datog speakers[/li][/ul]
Map of the great Nilotstan
Nilotic Union Map :Note how it resembles a revolver which is the national symbol of the great Union
Their landlocked economy would be largely dominated by cattle rustling and goat herding .
The Luos would be the professional class while the Kalenjins would be the police.Dinkas ,and Nuers would form most of the army while the Pokots would be the Special forces/Navy Seals with bases in Lake Turkana and Lake Victoria .
Make my dream come true nilotes :D:D:D:D
