Am Barawani myself I would explain to you why some Somalians say Barawanis and marlis are the same the reson for this is years ago when there was war Barwani people use to live in a small village in somalia called (Mini) they never use to be assiocated with eachother or anything , then somali men began to hate on Barwanis they began rapping Barwani women because there were all very light & pretty unlike the somali women as the somali men where rapping the women they got some of them pregenant meaning they said the kids were somali that's why they think they rule & they also took all the land & everything we had cause of jelaousy that's the exact full explinantion so don't think somali & Barawanis are the same !!

barawa are actually african arabs but more african. they are more light skinned than somalis. they migrated to somalia and consider themselves as somalis. but they are not ethnics. there are more barawa in kenya than in somalia. they speak swahili and somali. they are found at the coast they are not usually found in interior of somalia.

barawas only number about 10 000 in somalias population whereas the 'jareer' number about 1million
ethnic somalis number about 9million in somalia. 4million in kenya and 5 million in ethiopia. The barawa are a tribe who probally came from yemen and oman to somalia. some barawa look arab and some look proper african. but most barawas are light skinned than the average somali. whether you are jareer or bajun ur still somali(from somalia) but not an ethnic somali.

"Barawani or Barawenese people are Somali ("Somalian" is not the correct term). There are many light-skinned Somalis, some mistaken for Asians or Indians, so that alone shouldn't make you doubt your friend. However, the Barawanese are a people from the Barawa region of southern Somalia. It once had a thriving sea trade market, most frequently trading with Arabs, Indians, Portuguese and other traders. Some of those foreign traders moved into those southern sea ports, mixing with other ethnic groups in those regions.
I think Barawa/Barava (either name can work) is part of Benadiir or Xamar (pronounced Hamar), a region in the southern part of Somalia where there are other ethnic groups, like Bantus, Indians and Arabs and others who mixed together. So it's most likely your friend is mixed Bantu, Arab, and Indian and probably with other things. The Barawa's native language is a Swahili dialect with some Arab and Indian and Portuguese influence, although they also speak Somali (often with a Xamar dialect). The ethnic Somali tribes usually live more north although there are many individuals living in the southern Xamar region. But the south is also mainly home to Barawanese and other Xamar people.
Although they're not technically ethnic Somalis, they and other Somalis consider them Somalis. Their culture, upbringing, and nationality is Somali. The Xamar/Barawa/Benadiir people often are very proud of being Somali and don't usually take kindly to being treated as other than Somali.

what do you mean mixing with somalis. just coz u migrate doesnt mean u mix with them. mixing means marrying and giving birth to mixed offspring. u barawas u are not somali u r barawa somali is only 3 hawiye darood and dir.

ashraf bajun bantu bravanese are all proud somalis but not ethnic somalis(hawiye, darood, issaq, dir.) bravavese are simply arabs who probably got sent away or fled from arabia and landed in african somali coast.BRAVANESE ARE SOMALI BUT NOT ETHNIC SOMALIS.

ps plz stop these long debates.

somalis are only 4 hawiye issaq and darood.

minorities like barawas are mixed arabs and portugese who live in the somali coast. they are very few in number compared to the somali natives.

barawa are not somali they are a mixed family of people.
