The Nilotic language family are scattered north-south along the western border with the Sudan. Some of the main sub-groups included are the Shankila and Gumuz in western Gonder and Gojam; Mekan, Mao (Guenza) and Jeblawi in western Welega; Nuer in western Ilubabor, and Me-en in southern Kefa administrative region. With the exception of some muslim Kunamas Nara and the whole of Benishangul, the rest are animists.
