The Nara

live north of the Gash River in southwestern Eritrea. They are predominantly a Negroid people, who have strong builds but are generally not as tall as other related groups. The Nara belong to the Prenilotes, the Sudanic peoples that migrated eastward into southwestern Ethiopia, introducing agriculture to that part of Africa. In the past, the Nara were one of the Sudanese tribes that were raided

for slaves by other peoples.

The Nara language, also called Nara, belongs to the East Sudanic branch of the Nilo-Saharan language family. There is considerable dialect variation within their four main tribal sections and even from village to village. Tigre is used for intercommunication.

Ancient records exist referring to the Nara. Both an inscription in the fourth century and an Arab traveler's log in the ninth century document the location of the Nara on the borders of the Alwa Kingdom of the Nile Valley.

What Are Their Lives Like?
The Nara economy is based on agriculture, although many people weave, trade, hunt, or breed animals to supplement their incomes. Their principal crops include sorghum (the universal staple), wheat, barley, millet, legumes, vegetables, fruits, sesame, linseed, tobacco, and the stimulant known as kat.
