Biyomaal

Postby Navy9 » Tue Mar 30, 2010 7:51 pm

I do know that there is a tribe/clan called Biyomaal. Is this name related to water trading or has another meaning?

Yes it is a tribe, and the name is linked with their form of livelihood kinda like Tumaal being the blacksmith.

straigth from google:

the Dir include the ancient Biyomaal clan, which occupy an area from 35 km from Mogadishu south to Jilib and Kismaayo, not far from border with Kenya. The Biyomaal of Marka fought against the Italian colonial rulers of Southern Somalia in a twenty-year war known as the Biyomaal Revolt, in which the Dir assassinated several Italian governors

again straigth from the internet

Gaadsan, a subclan of Biyomaal, is one of the largest clans of the Dir. Their homelands are divided amongst three countries: Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. In Ethiopia, Gaadsan clan reside in three woredas: Liben (Jarrati, Waladaya, Doolow and Guuredhamole), Gode (Iimey and Boola), and Misraq Gashamo (Nusdariiq, Marsin, Kabtinuur and Qabridhare). The Gaadsan in Somalia mainly live in Bakool, Gedo and the Lower Juba Regions. In Kenya there is a third division of Gaadsan, known as Gaadsan-Kenya, the brother of Wardey Clan (subclan of Madaxweyne Dir). Both Gadsan and Wardey have settled on the largest and wealthiest lands of Somali Kenya such as Bangal, Garseeni, and Hoolla.

I can do google too...but this is not what I am looking for; thanks for your effort though. Do you know that there are people called Biyo in China and no I am not trying to link between them but wondered how people and languages travel across borders. The baraf we know in somali as ice, is known in Persia as snow...coincidence maybe or not!!!
