[edit]

Merged with duplicate article (my bad) Macina Empire today. I've kept Davidson's info on the empire's ending date, capital, and defeat by Umar Tall as I found confirmation of them at: 1 and [membres.lycos.fr/anthropa/A.Mayor.html 2]. --Dvyost 7 July 2005 16:18 (UTC)

Peul & Fula[edit]

I've changed Peul, which is French, to Fula. No problem with French en français, but it confuses readers in English to have different terms for the same group. If we use a term from another language the natural choice would be to use the Fulfulde/Pulaar term, Fulɓe. A12n 22:37, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

That was likely my bad, as I com at this from French history, and so am stuck on Francophone names and spellings.T L Miles (talk) 22:16, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Macina[edit]

Removed from the opening paragraph the reference to Macina, which in its narrower sense is part of the larger Inland Niger Delta. I believe that the traditional Fula area of Maasina was roughly centered on today's Macina Cercle, but in any event is on the western side of the IND, and was an integral part of what we now call the Massina Empire.--A12n (talk) 02:57, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
