Tenda

 

a group of related peoples living in the Republic of Guinea in areas neighboring on Senegal. The Tenda include the Bassari, Koniagi, Badyaranke, Mayo, and Boeni. Small groups of Bassari and Badyaranke also live in Senegal and Guinea-Bissau. The total population is approximately 30,000 (1970, estimate). The Tenda languages belong to the Atlantic (Western Bantoid) group. Most of the Tenda have retained their traditional animistic beliefs. The principal occupations are agriculture (mainly the cultivation of millet and yams), hunting, and fishing.

The attribution to Mme de Lafayette of Henriette d'Angleterre and La Comtesse de Tende is based more on critical conjecture than on verifiable fact, while that of the Memoires de la cour de France pour les annees 1688 et 1689, for reasons Duchene and others have explained, stretches the bounds of credibility.
