I can't speak to Somali usage among themselves, but the Somalis in Ethiopia, Kenya and Djibouti are all part of Somaliweyn, which is a culture all unto itself. Even I would like to see Somaliweyn accomplished. Faith in the resurrection must be providing some of this. I just try to remain realistic about the component parts.djiboutians(isse) do call themselves somali and so do "samaales" in ethiopia in kenya and ethiopia, modern usage of the word somali stretches to the whole somali penisuala. sometimes you will find non-samaales refusing to call themselves somalis(someone posted a video on that today) because "somali" has ethnic connotations in the real world,
somali-bantu for example is actually considered an ethnic group, and i would assume "beneadiri" etc would be recognized ethnic groups.
Yeah. Many of the Minorities are tired of the One-Somalia BS. For them, "Somali" has become pejorative.
Somali Bantu is a sort of ethnic group, combined and lumpy as it is.. Banadiri might break down further, depending on how you dealt with the Barwanni;. They all have double ethnicities. I can think of at least five more ethnicities I would break out. Are you just going to lump them all as Somali nationals? The Minority websites are certainly looking for individual recognition of their individual identities, and the differences between the.Bantu and the Bajuni are significant. I don't find your two terms adequate.
