Abstract

Beginning about 1830, the Jubba Valley of Somalia was settled by agricultural and pastoral slaves of East African origin and their descendants. Reconstructing the nature of the relationship between fugitive slave communities in the valley and the surrounding Somali slave-owning pastoralist groups on the plains points to some important issues in analyzing oral histories of groups with a denigrated and subjugated past.
