    Did some tracing back on my mother's family who are Moors from the Faal dynasty of Cayor and found some useful information that I've been seeking for a long time:

    Maures Darmanko — Wikipédia

    Couldn't grab this info before since by default english wikipedia pages pop up from my google searches, so I had to type Naari Kajoor (black moors) to get the French-Senegalese info. I don't know French so I'm relying on the translate feature.

    I'll take the info with a grain of salt since I don't know how accurate all this info is but it matches up with some of the history I learned from some Senegalese Imam and marabout.

    The dots are starting to connect :ohhh:

    Thanks but...

    I asked many of you Somalis to help me with it but so far none have come up. I've always been very interested in the Somali role in the Indian Ocean trade(like the Swahilis) and I heard many Somalis say that Somali during that time colonized many islands in the Indian ocean. But again no Somali I had asked accepted to help. I especially ask because Somali info seems hard to come by.
