Origins of the Eritrean People

Lesson 1 transcript: Nationality vs Ethno-linguistic groups & Tribe vs Tribal society

What are Ethno-linguistic groups?

A group of people who are identified by a common language, general culture, and customary/ritualistic practices.

What is a Nationality?

Nationality is the relationship between a person and his or her state of origin.

Example: My ethnicity is Nara, but my nationality is Eritrean. 

What is the difference between ethno-linguistic group and tribe?

A tribe is a group of people that includes many families and relatives who have the same language, customs, and beliefs. 

No! Eritrea has 9 ethno-linguistic groups, each sharing a common identity because of their language, culture & social construct – with the distinctions becoming less distinguishable

IT IS INACCURATE TO SAY THAT ERITREA HAS NINE TRIBES!

Eritrea has nine Ethno-linguistic  groups known as “biher” in Tigrinya.
