The peoples of the Horn of Africa are intimately linked by thousands of years of shared culture and history yet there is much diversity in politics and religion. This region could be said to embody the whole range of conflicts that are at the heart of the key issues shaping the 21st century.
The heartland of these peoples are Ethiopia, Somalia and Djibouti, but there is some spillover into neighboring Kenya, Sudan and Egypt. There are also related people groups in Tanzania.
The peoples of the Horn of Africa are sub-divided into six people clusters: Beja, Cushitic, Ethio-Semitic, Omotic, Oromo, and Somali.
