Beja Cluster – Profile
  • The Beja are one of the Cushitic peoples, living primarily in Sudan but also in Eritrea and Egypt. The word "Cushitic" is derived from the Biblical character Cush, the oldest son of Ham, son of Noah.
  • Some Beja are nomadic, and some are farmers and livestock producers.
  • Most Beja speak the Bedawiyet (or Beja) language as their main language. Bedawiyet is the prestigious language for the Beja because it conforms to the moral and ethical values of the community. Arabic is considered the language of modernity, but Bedawiyet communicates the highest moral and cultural values of the society. Beja poetry is typically in the Bedawiyet language.
  • The Bejas attach high importance to their hair. Their prominent crown of fuzzy hair (called tiffa in their language) has characterized the Beja for centuries.
  • Beja worshiped Isis at Philae until the 6th century. After the temple was closed down in the 6th century by the Byzantine emperor Justinian, Beja converted to Christianity under the influence of the three Nubian Christian Kingdoms that flourished along the Nile. In the 10th century Islam spread and gained popularity among the Beja people and today almost all Beja are Muslims.
