Nuer

Synonyms: 
Eastern Nuer, Abigar
Subgroup: 
Nilotic Sanga
Special Characteristics: 
Coat colour is commonly red-pied in patches on a white background; body size and horns are smaller than the Aliab Dinka. The Nuer often deliberately deform the horns towards a desired curvature.
Group: 
Main Location: 
Maintained by the Nuer people of southern Sudan.
Origin: 
The original Sanga stock evolved in Ethiopia, and the Nilotic Sanga appear to have developed from early migrations and spread across south-western Ethiopia into southern Sudan. The Abigar are similar to the adjacent Aliab Dinka in the Sudan, and both have retained the large body size, long horns and small humps of the true Sanga.
