    Default Burkina Faso people





    Burkina Faso's 15,3 million people belong to two major West African cultural groups--the Gur and the Mande. The Voltaic are far more numerous and include the Mossi, who make up about one-half of the population. The Mossi claim descent from warriors who migrated to present-day Burkina Faso and established an empire that lasted more than 800 years. Predominantly farmers, the Mossi are still bound by the traditions of the Mogho Naba, who hold court in Ouagadougou.

    Burkina Faso strikes me as having a big proportion of socalled sahelid people (gracilized version of sudanid? ). Also among non-fulani population.


    Thomas Sankara, revolutionary president in the eighties
    Born into a Roman Catholic family, "Thom'Sank" was a Silmi-Mossi, an ethnic group that originated with marriage between Mossi men and women of the pastoralist Fulani people.

    Blaise Compaor, the man who helped kill him, current president, i think he's just Mossi

    I've gone through phases of looking for pictures of Africans, but I tend to not find close ups of the faces like yours.

    Real talk, where do you find it all? They're so high-quality and there's so many!

    I personally prefer this type of Sudanoid look over other SSA's for some reason. I see many Dominicans who look eerily similar, I wouldn't be surprised if many of the Africans brought to Hispaniola were of these ethnic groups.

    I doubt if people from Burkina Faso were ever brought to the americas. But i do know what you mean. It's this sahelid kind of look which is also found in senegambia/guinea, it's very similar to many darkskinned afrolatino's not only from DR but also from brazil and cape verde.

    I suspect though that in americas slightly different genetical combinations might be responsbile for this look than in sahel zone of africa.



    These are all burkina Fulani
    Full IMG view of this gallery can still be seen here.

    Thousands of slaves were taken from burkina faso-Northern Ghana.
    Its estimated that at least half a million were taken from the area between 1732 and 1897.

    As a Ghanaian (with relatives in northern Ghana and Burkina Faso) I would say that atleast half of the slaves sold from the Goldcoast (Ghana) came from these areas.

    As of matter of fact northern Ghana is still suffering from the slave trade.

    http://www.modernghana.com/news/1344...slave-tra.html

    The people of northern Ghana have the same features as these people as of matter of fact the Mossi people are believed to have originated from Northern Ghana (From the Mamprussi tribe).
    I think its from Northern Ghanaians and Burkinabe that Jamaicans get their tall and slender build from.

    I admit that there are a lot of Burkinabes that look Jamaican! Hell, the Burkinabe footballer (soccer player to you Yanks) Alain Traore kinda looks like me and one of my uncles.
