Our history is our power
« on: March 25, 2004, 08:12:22 PM »
I wonder how well we know our history and its connection with nowadays...

Several centuries ago Kanuri people founded a great impire Borno, renamen then in Kanem.

What we know about these people today

Orangefly, as you must have heard before, History is written by the Victors. Even though one could argue that the Fulani Jihadists did not dismantle the Kanuri dynasties, the overwhelming dominace of Fulanis in Northern Nigeria has meant only their views will be discussed.
 I am not saying the Kanuris arent entitled to a beffiting memorial in the form of historical literature but they are not the 'it', the 'it' to be known and remembered.
Perhaps one day it will happen but one never knows.
I'll suggest doing it yourself through research or inquiring more on the matter in UniMaid.
Good luck on your quest>
Allah ya bada sa'a amin.
