Fula Americans or Fulbe Americans are Americans of Fula (Fulbe) descent.

The first Fulbe people that emigrated to United States were slaves exported from several parts of West and Central Africa. Many Fulbe came of places as Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Cameroon. So, most of the slaves that came from Senegal belonged to ethnic groups Mandinga and Fula.[2]
