Some of the many faces of Nigeria!

 

Nigeria has many different “ethnic groups” (called “tribes” by some) who live throughout the country.

 

Many of these groups actually had their own “kingdoms” before European contact so it’s

not really accurate to call them “tribes.”

 

There are many MILLIONS of Nigerians. Here are but a few of them…

Northern Nigerian Woman Northern Herdsmen

Schoolgirls in uniform Family in a village

     

As you can see, there is no one way to describe Nigerians. Just like people all over the

world, they dress in many different styles.
