Nalu, a people of the low coastlands between the Cassini and the Rio Pongo rivers, Senegambia, whose "king," Yora Towell, accepted the French protectorate in 1865. They speak a dialect of the widespread Susu language (itself a branch of the Mandingan), and all were forcibly converted to Mohammedanism by the Fulahs of the neighbouring Futa-jallon uplands early in the present century. Nevertheless, they still preserve many pagan usages. Like their Landuman and Baga neighbours, the Nalus are of somewhat pronounced Negro type.
