Who is a fulani, how can he be identified? and the stealing of good fulani children and the rejection of bad fulani children by the other tribes and the game behind it
A fulani man, is a person having a fulani clear ancestry, wether he speaks fulani language or he lost it.
wether he is a nomad, Cattle rearer or not, as far as he has a clear fulani ancestry, he is a fulani
A Non fulani man is anybody that does not have a parental blood line or paternal ancestral line to the fulani ethnic group, wether he speaks fulani language fluently or not
Speaking fulani language does not make a person fulani man, as far as fulani did not gave birth to you, just as if you go to Gembu, taraba, in some parts of Gombe, Adamawa, Sokoto and Kebbi states, you see people that are not born by fulani, speaking fulani language fluently, you cannot call them fulani, just the way you can never call a black man an ARAB or WHITE just because he lost his Black ancestry or African language, understanding this will give u a clear understanding of a fulani and non fulani.
Just the way the southern kaduna people are among the hausa speakers and most of them exhibit hausa names and culture but the real hausas reject them as been hausa, thesame thing with the fulani, any person calling himself a fulani man, without him having a clear ancestral lineage to the fulani race is not a fulani, wether he is the master of fulani language or not
This concept should be understood well
The Stealing of fulani good children and the rejection of fulani bad children by other tribes and the Game behind it:
The hausa never accepts an igbo or yoruba that lost his language and can only speak hausa as his 1st language, but they call the fulani that lost their language hausa, if they see the fulani is well placed in their society, so that they can benefit from him and marry his children, but if he commits something evil, they will address him as a fulani descendant not hausa
As far as a fulani is very useful to his society or he is rich, educated or highly placed in the society, they always claimed to own him, they always claimed he is not a fulani, but their own son, but the moment he commits anything bad, they disown him, and call him fulani
to them a fulani name is only applied to somebody who commits something evil or bad, that is why if you address any fulani emire as fulani, they will attack you, and say you are causing division, but if that fulani emire commits something bad, they will address him as fulani.
Real hausa descendants have a way they distinguish themselves from the imported hausa, no matter where Bagobiri hausa or bakabe hausa is, he distinct himself from the imported hausa.
