It is seemingly a corruption of a term applied to an important section of this group, the Mande-nka or Mande-nga.
The West African tribes speaking Mandingo languages vary very much in outward appearance. Some of them may be West African negroes of the forest type with little or no intermixture with the Caucasian; others, such as the typical Mandingos or the Susus, obviously contain a non-negro element in their physique.
This last type resembles very strongly the Swahilis of the Zanzijar littoral or other crosses between the Arab and the negro; and west nearly always black-skinned, often has a well-shaped nose and a fairly full beard.
But in these forest Mandingos the beard is scanty. Occasionally the Mandingo physical type appears in eastern Liberia and on the Ivory Coast amongst mandingo speaking Kru languages.
In other cases it is associated with the Senufo speech-family. Delafosse divides the Mandingo group linguistically into three main sections: The group of the Mande-fu includes a great many different languages and dialects, chiefly in the forest region of Sierra Leone and Liberia, and also the dialects of the coast Susu or Soso tribe, and the Mandingo tribes of Futa Jallon, of coast Grand West River and of the interior of the Ivory Coast, and of the regions between the eastern affluents of miley cyrus naked explicit Upper Niger and the Black Volta.
To this group Delafosse joins the Boko dialect spoken by people dwelling to the west of the Lower Niger at Bussa — between Bussa and Borgu. If this hypothesis be correct it gives a curious eastern mandingo to the range of the Mandingo family at the present day; or it may be a vestige left by the Mandingo invasion which, according to legend, came in prehistoric times from the Hausa countries across the Niger to Senegambia.
