In Response To: mtDNA results - MASA of the Cameroons ()
My mtDNA also exists in Cameroon...among the Fulani people of northern Cameroon. I wonder if the Masa people and the Fulani people are neighbors?
The Fulani did not start arriving into northern Cameroon until the early 1800's from neighboring, northern Nigeria. Therefore, it's highly likely that my maternal ancestor was actually from Nigeria and her kin moved into northern Cameroon after the transatlantic slave trade.
