Majority of Nigerians hardly know the differences between the Hausa and the Fulani ethnic groups. They see them as one because the two tribes are based in the northern part of Nigeria.These two ethnic groups neither look alike or practice the same culture.

Below are three major differences between the Hausa and Fulani tribes.

1. Fulanis are light skinned and usually have long hairs.

The fulanis are generally light in colour, unlike the Hausa's that have mixture of skin colours. The Fulanis also have long hairs.

2. The Fulanis are nomads and spreads across all Western Countries of Africa while the Hausa's are merchants

The Fulanis practice nomadic system of farming which makes them travel a lot in search of grasses for their animals.

The Hausa's on the other hands are merchants and are majorly into business and trading activities.

3. They practise monogamy while Hausa's practice polygamy system of marriage

The Fulani's practise the whipping of the suitor before her bride as part of their marriage rite and this aided monogamy, while the Hausa's are polygamists and can marry as many wives as they like.
