Jumjum, Berin of Sudan

The Jumjum are a Nilotic people, a term used to refer to those who live in or around the upper Nile Valley. Long subjected to foreign influence, the Jumjum are a somewhat mixed group. In years past, they have had close contact with the Dinka, Nuer, and Shilluk groups. These tribes often invaded the Jumjum area, raiding it for slaves. The Jumjum are closely related, both geographically and linguistically, to the Burun; and some consider the two groups as one. The Jumjum are farmers and shepherds. Most are animists, and worship the supreme god Dyong.
