Soninke, Senufo, Mandinka, population of Mali, Songhai

Almost all the population of Mali is African; the major groups are the Bambara, Fulani, Tuareg, Soninke, Senufo, Songhai, and Mandinka (also known as Mandingo or Malinke). Nomadic Tuaregs and other Berbers roam the Sahel and parts of the Sahara. Islam is the religion of about 80 percent of the population, and about 18 percent of the people follow traditional beliefs; less than 2 percent are Christians. French is the official language but African languages, such as Bambara and Songhai, are widely spoken.
