Description
Summary:Katab is the collective term for a cluster of ethnic groups living in north-central Nigeria, as well as the name of a single subgroup. Other subgroups include the Ataka, Ikulu, Jaba, Kachichere, Kagoma, Kagoro, Kaje, Kamantan, Katab and Morwa. This is a collection of 9 documents. An early government report by Temple (1922) focused on the Kagoma, Kagoro and Kaje tribes, with little information about the Katab proper. The government anthropologist C.K. Meek (1931) wrote the earliest ethnography, concentrating on the Katab and Kagoro tribes, with some additional information on the Kaje, Jaba, Kachichere, and Morwa. Cole (1948), another colonial official, reported on land tenure and its social implications in what is now Kaduna state, with particularly rich detail for the Jaba and Kagoro; rather less for the Kaje. Smith (1953; 1960; 1983) did fieldwork in 1950 and 1959, and writes about religion, social organization, political development and marriage among the Kagoro and the neighboring Kadara (not a Katab group). McKinney (1983) is concerned with Kaje, Kagoro and Katab linguistics. The Bonat (1989) article is a general history of the Katab from 1800 to 1960.
