Baza Nubia

Baza (Nubia), a Negro or Negroid people of the Mareb Valley, Upper Nubia, at the north foot of the Abyssinian plateau. The Bazas, who call themselves Kunama, are still pagans and speak a language of unknown origin. They have no chiefs, each village being ruled by elders. The Bazas belong to the large group of populations collectively called Shangalla by the Abyssinians. They have been described by Munziger, Reinisch, and James (Wild Tribes of Soudan, 1884).
