This could use some improvement. Sir H. MacMichael claimed that the Tibu were related to the Garamantes known to the Greeks and Romans and that they had extensive contact with Nubia to their east. The article suggests the Tibu have been important in Chadian history, but doesn't detail their links to the Zaghawa dynasty that ruled Kanem. I'm hesitant to add too many historical details - esp. involving Greco-Roman connections - on the basis of Victorian British sociology, but someone should be able to expand this article with more modern research. -LlywelynII (talk) 16:47, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Were they Jewish before they became Muslim? "La religion - Avant 1230 avant JC, les Toubous pratiquent la religion du dieu du soleil, ensuite le judaïsme de 1230 avant JC jusqu'au 8ème siècle , et depuis la religion majoritaire est l'Islam." This site confirms the Garamante connection. "Le mélange des peuples Garamantes et Nubiens donne naissance au Tedas." Nubians must be a mistake for Numidians, a common confusion.

Merge proposal[edit]

I propose merging the stubs Teda people and Daza people into Toubou people#Teda and Daza. Thoughts? --M4gnum0n (talk) 15:43, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Population contradiction?[edit]

Regarding the Teda, the text currently says "...while the Teda are only 42,000" and later "They number more than 50,000". I say leave it in: presumably it reflects two sources. Removing just one would give false accuracy, and removing both would be misleading (as presumably they reflect two genuine estimates). Or perhaps replace with "estimates vary, some saying 42,000, some saying more than 5,000" ? (talk) 16:03, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
