Somalis definitions

Britannica Concise

People occupying all of Somalia and parts of Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Kenya. Their language is of the Cushitic branch of the Afroasiatic family. Numbering about 7 million, the Somalis are divided into N, central, and S groups. All have been Muslims since at least the 14th cent. They are primarily nomadic herdsmen who, because of intense competition for scarce resources, have been extremely individualistic and frequently involved in blood feuds or wars with neighboring clans or peoples. A second category of Somalis are the townspeople and agriculturalists of the urban centers, especially along the coast of the Horn of Africa, many of whom act as commercial middlemen between the Arab world and the nomads of the interior.
