By Tristan Croteau
North Africa

Language

Sahara
In North Africa the most
commonly spoke language

Africans speak French,
Italian, and English.
Religion
There are a lot of Muslims in North Africa that practice the Islam religion. Some Egyptians are Christians or other religions.


Food
Some common foods in North
Africa are meat such as goat
lamb and beef. Also dates, almonds,
and olives. Many vegetables and
seafood.
Interesting Place
To Visit
I would like to visit the pyramids
in Egypt. I think it is cool to see
old Egyptian architecture. I also think it
is amazing who much time the Egyptians put into building these pyramids.
Morocco's Government
Morocco is under a Monarchy rule.
This means there is one leader like
a king or a queen that has sole power.
People have very few rights under
this type of rule. The Prime Minister
of Morocco is Abdelilah Benkirane.
Current Issue
The Africa Cup was canceled in Morocco
because of Ebola. They fear that Ebola
might spread. They resolved this by moving
the cup to Equatorial Guinea because it is
more safe for people.
West Africa
Culture
Religion
In West Africa they practice forms of Animism. Animism
is the belief that bodies of water, animals, trees, and other natural objects have spirits. The two most common religions are
Islam and Christianity. Islam
was brought from North Africa and Europeans introduced Christianity.
People/Tribes
West Africa has hundreds of ethnic
groups. The largest groups are Hausa
and Fulani, Yoruba, and Igbo. Some
of these ethnic groups choose to
live the same traditional lifestyle.
Food
Much of West African Food is found along coastlines, rivers and lakes. Fish are an important
food item. Also they raise cattle, goats, and sheep. They use a lot of hot spices and peanuts to add flavor to there food.
Sierra Leone's Government
Sierra Leone was declared a Republic in 1971. This means rule by law, not rule by the people which is like the United States a democracy. They have a President and Vice President that are voted for by the people.
This is Ernest Bai Koroma the president of Sierra
Leone.
Nigeria does not have access to clean and safe water. The rivers carry diseases that can kill, mostly the young, weak, and old. According to wateraid.com, half of Nigeria does not have safe water to drink.
Current Issue
Interesting Place to Visit
I would like to go to Cape Verde. It is a beach resort and is popular among European travelers. Ebola is not a threat there. I think this location is fun, has good weather and is safe.
East Africa
In 1963 Kenya won its independence from the British. Kenya's a Democratic Republic. Over the past years they have been setting up a government like the United States. Their President will serve a five year term though. They also elect a Deputy President. The
President of Kenya is Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta
Republic of Kenya
Some East Africa counties have severe food shortages. Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya have people who are starving to death. The United Nations and Red Cross send food along with private donations. The problem is some corrupt people steal the supplies. The United Nations are working with governments in East Africa to stop this
Current Issue
Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia is primarily Islamic. In Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda are mostly Christian, a term that includes Roman Catholicism. The majority of Sudan’s population is Muslim.
Culture
Religion
Language
French is official language of Rwanda, Burundi, and
Djibouti. English is spoken by millions of
people in Uganda, Kenya,
and Tanzania. Also East Africans speak Swahili, which is an African language. When East Africans traded with Arabic speakers, more Swahili speakers came.
Eastern African foods consists of dishes made from grains, including sorghum, millet, rice, maize, yam, beans and cowpeas, flours for bread and stews cooked with vegetables and meat (mostly goat, beef, and pork).Islam's and Muslims regard eating pork as unholy.
