According to the Eritrean government, the Nara are descendants of the first Nilo-Saharan settlers in Eritrea, who had migrated from the Upper Nile area and intermarried with local Pygmy populations.
The Nara population is divided into four subtribes: the Higir, Mogareb, Koyta and Santora. They traditionally adhered to animist beliefs, but most have since adopted Islam and a minority also follow Christianity.
The language is also known as Nara-Bana, meaning "Nara-Talk".
