Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a study of the political organization of the Kede, a completely Islamized section of the Nupe tribe living on the Niger and Kaduna Rivers. Their economic pursuits and general social life center around the rivers on which they live. Thus, their social and cultural life, as well as their political organization, present features which are absent in the rest of Nupe. Among the topics discussed are: demography; history and settlement pattern; political organization; social stratification; economic organization; and the evolution of the Kede state, all of which are discussed from a functional standpoint.
