Abstract:Compares the impact of colonial rule on two African societies: the Gbaya, mobile cultivators, and the pastoral Fulani, both inhabiting the Adamawa Plateau in central Cameroon. The article examines the administrative problems these societies posed to the French colonial government in its efforts to apply its policy of regroupement: the resettlement and reorganization of colonized peoples into admistrative units.
