Re: Three Origins of the Amhara People

Definitely not Shewa! It used to be dominated by Muslims of Argobba, Harla and other Ethio-Semitic highland farmers and Cushitic nomads. Shewa Sultanate ruled this area until they were disposed and colonized by Umar Walashma from Zeila, Ifat Sultanate. Ever since the Somali invasion in that provinc...

Re: What is the difference between Galla and Oromo!

Ifat and Adal territories might included some part of Somali area but their proper areas weren’t at least for Ifat. Also their founders weren't. Let's not argue about this again. I've given you Ethiopian chronicles. We have long long oral traditions and medieval foreign sources to prove this is our...

Re: Did Amharans from Shewa transform Gondar into the Amhara and Orthodox culture

Samson, King susnyos did not introduce Christianity in Gonder. Gonder was Christian since the the binging of Christianity. Susinyos was in Gonder around the 16th century. That means Resident of Gonder Amaras were Christians for at least for 1200 years before king susinyos arrived. Actually the Gond...

Re: Did Amharans from Shewa transform Gondar into the Amhara and Orthodox culture

I think you are asking about north Gondar and from my understanding yes it was the Amara from Shewa and other areas who greatly Amaranized and Christianized it starting from the second half of the 16th century. But the earliest presence of Amara there date back before the 16th century.

galla are claiming Abba Babrey to be galla

I will quote what I found from a book,
• “Very recently a debate arose that he may be an Oromo.”

This is another indication that no one is safe from being claimed by galla even if the person lived centuries ago. They will claim anything because that is one of the characteristics to be a galla.

Re: Amhara is not a immigrant to ethiopia

Yes they aren’t emigrant but they are Cushitic. They are Semitic and being Semitic doesn’t mean you are from other place.

I read the article you posted 1 or 2 years ago. Although generally good there are some mistake in it.

Re: What is the difference between Galla and Oromo!

Their are many theories about the origin of Galla word, but I'm sure it didn't originated in somali. Their is no written evidence to back up your claim. Your just being a somali, taking credit for everything that doesn't belong to you. The Oromos first had contact with amhara and other ethinc group...

Re: What is the difference between Galla and Oromo!

Some Muslim Oromo groups used to prefer to be called galla than Oromo because the latter for them denoted being pagan. Watch Donald Levin ESAT interview.

Re: Why is the Gondar solomonic branch called senior than the Showan branch ?

The Gonder branch is simply the relocation of the Shewan branch. The Shewan dynasty that ruled from 1270 relocated in the 16th century to the safety of Gonder after Shewa was conquered and settles by Oromos. The founders of city of Gonder were all born in Shewa including Atse Fasil. The reason why ...
