In Response To: Re: Temne ()

Howard,the Temne trace their origins to the Fouta Djallon region of Guinea. (Source: African Ancestry Guide to: West & Central Africa)

I am particularly interested in the Nova Scotia aspect of Sierra Leone in that former American slaves left Nova Scotia for settlement by the British in Sierra Leone in the 1790s. The native Temne were very resistive to the newcomers and much has been written about their raids on the Nova Scotia settlements, their re-enslavement of some of the settlers, and their capture of some of the women into their tribe.
