Introduction / History

The Ndogo migrated from what is today the Central Africa Republic around the 10th century AD. As they migrated, they came into conflict with the Azande who forced the Ndogo further north into their present homeland in south Sudan, west of Wau. The Ndogo culture and way of life is now threatened since the civil war in 1986 caused the migration of many of them into towns like Wau, Juba and Khartoum. The urban population has risen from 20-25% (before 1986) to around 70%. It is estimated that 30% have left their farmlands for the forests since the civil war.

The Ndogo were originally agriculturalists. They are hard workers and value self-sufficiency. Apart from farming they value skilled labor tasks such as carpentry and blacksmithing.

Ndogo has become a prestigious language. Its trade language status and its general use have been encouraged by the early translation work of the Roman Catholic Church. Education in the Ndogo language was also made possible by this work.
