Introduction / History

In a mountainous area of Nigeria, the Tula people carve terraces into steep hillsides to plant their crops. Their tight communities have lived in this region for many generations. Until 1970, Tula was the hub of the regional "Native Authority." This agency deals with various issues for Nigeria's cultural communities throughout the nation.

The Tula people generally get along well with neighboring groups, although occasional boundary disputes sometimes disturb the peace.

About 85% of the people follow Jesus. Most who are not Christians practice traditional African religion, which includes fear of spirits and ancestor worship.

Nigeria is one of the areas with the greatest remaining need for Bible translation in the world. With 512 languages in the country, more than 300 still need a translation started. Nigerian Christians will have to play a critical role in translating their own languages.

Nigeria has the largest population of any country in Africa, with about half of the people who are Christian concentrating in the south and half who are Muslim in the north. The Tula are surrounded by Muslims where they live in the north.
