Makari (Kotoko), a Negro people of Central Sudan, where they form the bulk of the southern provinces of Kotoko and Logon, in the kingdom of Bornu; they appear to have come originally from the middle Shari basin, exterminating or absorbing the Keribina and other aborigines of their present domain. The Makari are mostly Mohammedans, and their Sultan of Logon often takes part in the slave-hunting expeditions organised by his paramount lord, the king of Bornu, against the surrounding Musgo and other more southerly pagan populations.
