Fulakunda People of Senegal and Mauritania

by CR

Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit…. (Romans 12:2a, TPT)
Only through Jesus can true freedom and transformation come to the Fulakunda people of West Africa. A sub-group of the Fulbe, the Fulakunda number almost 1.8 million people in Senegal and about 47,000 in Mauritania. They live as herdsmen of cattle and sheep. When the weather allows it, they also grow cash crops of cotton, millet, corn, and peanuts. The men herd cattle while women work mainly in the village. Children lack a formal education.
Devotion to Islam dominates Fulakunda culture. The Fulakunda follow good morals and virtues that include justice, patience, generosity, and honesty. Village life emphasizes adherence to obligations and rules. Within the last 60 years, some Fulakunda turned to Islam from old animist beliefs. In Mauritania many still hold to strong beliefs in evil spirits and sorcerers.
The New Testament, The JESUS Film, and audio recordings are all available in Pulaar, the Fulakunda language. However, very few Fulakunda follow Jesus.
