TOUBOU

Postby Yacine » Fri Sep 23, 2016 8:13 am

In recent days came the results of three members of our group, all from the Tebou/Tibou population. Another member had already been tested, so we have two L19/M310 and two PF2431.

Haplotypes place them in branching PF2439/PF2440 to be confirmed with a future test.

The Toubou origin is controversial, some sources link them to Yemen, others in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya ...) because of the similar physical and cultural features. According to Jean Chapel (1982, p16) "It would be dangerous for a layman to engage more on such a shaky ground. Suffice it to remember that the Toubou belong to a homogeneous race from a distant black and white miscegenation and long established in its current habitat "

All Teda recognize a common origin Chad, specifically the Tibesti with the main town, the town of Zouar. The Toubou term and means in Kanuri, inhabitant of Tou Tou is the quintessential the Tibesti.

Tibesti played a very important role in the history of this community. It was for them both a magnet and dispersion of the first millennium to today.

According to Leo Africanus, the legacy of Garamantes was transferred during the Islamic Era of the Fifth division of Berber tribes. The Gumeri(Garamantes) and Bardaei or Bardoa , which translates as the Teda of the Bardai oasis otherwise known as Teda of the Tebu or Toubou tribes) were the Garamantes direct descendants.

In Libya in Fezzan these peoples had names like Garamantes, Gamphasantes, Tidamansii, Gillagammae. Roman geographer Pomponius Mela (45 A.D.) refers to the Garamantes as "Gamphasantes". While Pliny refers to Garamantia as Phazania with its capital of Garama. Much later the Syrian Abul Feda of the 14th century refers to Garama and its population as Garran or Karran a name Arab speakers still use for the modern Daza.(Daza are Toubou speaking peoples now living mainly in Chad and Niger.)

The Toubou are of Garamante origin…hence the word "Gourane." They share much of the same blood with the Touareg except while the Touareg mixed with the Hausa and the Fulani, they mixed with the Wadai, Kanembu, Zaghawa and the Kanuri, especially the Kanuri.

Also, the Fulani originated on the border of Algeria and Mali, not the Sahara. They are Kel Ouli, "people of the goat." Toubou are Ikaradan, cousins of Touareg but not dominated by the Touareg.
