1. What are the different ethnic groups in Darfur? There are many different ethnic groups in Darfur. Many of them are concentrated in separate regions of Darfur, according to historical and environmental factors. Northern mostly consists of the Zayyadiyya, the Baggara, the Abbala, and the Zaghawa. The Zayyadiyya, the Baggara, and the Abbala are all Arab groups, while the Zaghawa is a non-Arab group. The Baggara and the Abbala are also nomadic. In the central region of Darfur, the Fur, the Masalit, the Gama and the Tama mostly live. They are all non-Arab cultivator groups, as the central region of Darfur is mostly a farming region. The Fur, specifically, are a non-Arab, Islamic, group of cultivators. Southern Darfur “serves as the main corridor of Baggara migration;” there are no Abbala there because that group uses camels to travel, and the ecological conditions in that region are not conducive to camels (Nielson 2008). 2.
