Loma

 

(also Toma, Logoma, or Loomago; self-designation, Looma, or Tooma), a people living in Liberia along the upper course of the Saint Paul and Loffa rivers, and also in the Republic of Guinea. Their population, together with the Gbande, is about 370,000 (1967, estimate). The Loma language belongs to the southern group of the Mande language family. Most of the Loma have preserved their traditional religious beliefs (nature worship and ancestor worship); some are Muslims. Their chief occupation is farming (cassava, corn, and rice); they also cultivate the African oil palm.
