African Collections

African Tribe List

This list was compiled by myself, Steve Thanni of 'Fine Tribal Gallery'. It is not meant to be exhaustive or necessarily comprehensive in reference to 'African Tribes'; but rather a definitive assemblage of tribes with which FTG, have intimate knowledge of, or tribes that we offer tribal art pieces from. Myself, and other fellow 'African & Oceanic' Art aficianados at FTG, have been regularly to over a dozen countries in West and Central Africa spanning over several decades. Between us, we have met with, over 40 tribes, and I myself have rudimentary knowledge of about 10 sub saharan languages and dialects. We are working hard to, catalogue, photograph and list our extensive collection, many of which have only recently made it to the UK despite us have found them many years ago!
