WHAT DOES MALINKE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Malinke

Mandinka people

The Mandinka, Malinke is a West African ethnic group with an estimated global population of eleven million. They belong to the larger Mandé group of peoples. They are the descendants of the Mali Empire, which rose to power under the rule of the great Mandinka king Sundiata Keita. The Mandinka in turn belong to West Africa's largest ethnolinguistic group, the Mandé, who account for more than twenty million people. Today, over 99% of Mandinka in Africa are Muslim. The Mandinka live primarily in West Africa, particularly in the Gambia, Guinea, Mali, Sierra Leone, Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Guinea-Bissau, Niger and Mauritania. Although widespread, the Mandinka do not form the largest ethnic group in any of the countries in which they live except the Gambia. Most Mandinkas live in family-related compounds in traditional rural villages. Mandinka villages are fairly autonomous and self-ruled, being led by a chief and group of elders. Mandinkas live in an oral society. Learning is traditionally done through stories, songs and proverbs.
