by Francis Mading Deng




Written by the son of the late Paramount Chief of the Ngok Dinka, this ethnography provides a rich, well-balanced view of Dinka life in the Sudan. Always in direct contact with a hostile environment, deprivations, and troubles, the Dinka now form part of modern Sudan but remain among the least touched by modernization. Their pride and ethnocentrism are important factors in their conservatism and resistance to change. A rare view of these "Lords of Men" is provided by a writer who is both an insider and a professional researcher and interpreter.

I KNOW A GUY WHO CAME FROM THIS AREA... AND HE OWS ME A LOT OF MONEY. I SAVED HIS WIFE'S LIFE. DURING CHILD BIRTH. BUT AT THE TIME? I DID NOT KNOW HE WAS EVEN MARRIED. I DID NOT KNOW SHE EXISTED. I DID NOT KNOW HE HAD A SON. HE CRIED AS HE TOLD ME HIS "SISTER" WAS DYING. YET IT WAS HIS WIFE DYING IN CHILD BIRTH. THE BABY HE CREATED WHEN HE WENT BACK HOME TO MAKE...MAKE A BABY WHEN HE WAS WITH ME.. SAYING HE LOVED ME... AS I WAS UNKNOWINGLY HELPING HIM CHEAT. ON HIS WIFE.

AND I GAVE HIM THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO SAVE HIS WIFE'S LIFE. GAVE. FROM THE MONEY WHEN MY GRANDMA DIED. AND HE NEVER THANKED ME. AND YOU KNOW HE NEVER TOLD HIS WIFE WHERE THE MONEY CAME FROM.

OH CAUSE HE WAS A SAVIOR! HE GOT TO BE THANKED. THE AFRICAN MAN WHO CAME TO AMERICA TO BETTER HIMSELF. YES! AND MADE MONEY TO SEND BACK HOME. BUT IT WAS MY MONEY. FROM MY GRANDMA'S DEATH.

HE JUST TOLD ME A SAD STORY. AND SWINDLED ME. AND THEN HE DID OW ME MONEY AND I TOOK HIM TO COURT. HE STILL OWS ME MONEY. HE RAN.

HOW MANY HAVE RUN? THEY TOOK MONEY FROM A CHURCH IN SANTA CLARA, CA AND THE PASTOR KNOWS THEY ARE MARRIED. AND CHEAT. THE PASTOR KNEW HE WAS WITH ME FOR A YEAR AND KNEW HE WAS MARRIED. AND KNEW HE OWED ME MONEY.. AND AT THE SAME TIME HE OWED ME MONEY.. HE LET THE CHURCH CONGREGATION COLLECT DONATIONS FOR HIM... TO GO BACK AND SEE HIS WIFE.

THAT IS SICK AND EVIL. AND SCAMMING PEOPLE. A TOTAL SCAM. THAT IS WHO THE DINKA OF SUDAN ARE.

Such beautiful people, who lived in he wrong place at the wrong time. We have many Dinka living in Dallas, TX and they are extremely lovely people. Alcohol and sugar has taken in toll in this country.

Mr.Deng has written another scholarly work on Sudan, this time on a particular tribe that has inhabited the country for centuries-the Dinka of the South, including Bahr al-Ghazal, the old slavery province, as well as Kordofan. This group numbers over 2,000,000 out of a total population of 15,000,000 people. The Dinka make up a large minority out of hundreds of other tribal groups. Their ways and customs go back centuries and reveal very old Sudanese traditions. An interesting cultural study that will enhance the knowledge of anyone seeking a better understanding of this large African nation. -Murray S. Fradin, Author of: JIHAD: The Mahdi Rebellion in the Sudan
