Historical Facts:
Work Cited
The Sudanese Civil War was one conflict they had to face, but that's not where it started. it started with the myth that the Dinka and Nuer had the same father. The Dinka deceived it's father by taking the calf instead of taking the cow, that the Nuer was supposed to get. Which has lead to problems up till today; leaving a long history with the Dinka tribe.
The Nuer's have two different types of marking on their forehead and dots all over their face, arms and chests.
They also once migrated in the mid 1800's. They headed up east and pushed the Anuak father more east of Ethiopia.
It is proven that the ancient Nubians were the first to discover and make wheat.which is why flour is still a staple crop for the ones who still use it to make Gourrassa.
