Re: Kanuri - absent in AA connections to slave trade
In the documentary "Motherland: A Genetic Journey," one young man's mtDNA traced to the Kanuri. He is Caribbean-British as all in that project were. He was taken to visit the Kanuri, took a Kanuri name, complete with naming ceremony. He later learned the name was formerly the title for the chief slave-catcher for the Kanuri sultan.
So perhaps the Kanuri were on the other side of the slave trading transactions?? :-)
