The Nuer Tribe
By Keller Feronti
The Nuer Tribe is a tribe native to South Sudan and. They are mainly in the Upper Nile Province. The center of their territory is around Lake No.
The Nuer Tribe is one of the two main ethnic groups in Sudan and South Sudan.
The Flag of South Sudan
The black stripe represents the 8 million people of South Sudan. The blue background with the yellow star represents the Nile River. The red stripe stands for the war and bloodshed. Finally, the green stands for the agriculture potential.
Cultural Factors
The Nuer's religion is based on cattle. Their language is a form of Nilotic that is related to the Dinka's and Awot. The marriage is also not finalized until the woman has two children. Another fact is that the Nuer remove eight teeth to show maturity.
The Nuer have constant skirmishes with the Dinka tribe involving cattle. The Nuer also participated in a war against Sudan, which lasted 22 years. The civil war led to South Sudan's independence six years later.
The Nuer worship a supreme god named Kwoth. Some Nuer practice Christianity.
Scarification is a process where the boys become men. There is a big celebration where the boys family receives many cattle. The scars all called "gaar." If the boy dies the doctor is not held for compensation and is not punished.
The Nuer like to use many spices in their dishes. The Nuer also make a bread called Kissra, which is made of durra or corn. Many Nuer also make stews out of dried meat, dried onions, spices and peanut butter. The Nuer also eat sheep's liver and stomach.
Clothing (Ceremonial)
The men wear long beige or white robes that are called jalabiya. The women wear dresses that are called joob. Joob are a mixture of any color that are worn over shorts and t-shirts.

The main sport the Nuer play is soccer.
