AkishoFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, searchAkisho (var. Akisha, Akishe; also known as Gurre) is a Somali subclan, part of the larger Dir group whose members live in Ethiopia and northern Somalia. The Akisho are a subclan of the Ali Madaxweyn Dir, and they are reputed to be descendants of the eldest sons of the Madaxweyn Dir.Akisho is one of the oldest clans in the Horn of Africa. According to Somali history, two of the oldest monarchies in the region, the Ifat and Adal Sultanates, were Akisho.[citation needed] The great horn African hero Ahmad ibn Ibrihim al-Ghazi ("Ahmed Gurey") was Akisho.[citation needed]The Akisho inhabit both Somaliland and Ethiopia. In Somaliland, Akisho members live in the southern Waqoyi-Galbeed Province, Wajaale, Ala’ibaday, and Gabiley. In Ethiopia, where the Akisho are the most widespread Somali group, Akisho members inhabit Jijiga, Baale (Nagelle), Baabule, Fayaanbiiro, Qabri-Bayah, Fiiq, Hara-Maaya, Harar, and Dadar.Akisho members are predominantly adherents of Sunni Islam, though one might find a Christian Akisho in the Shewa area of Ethiopia.TheAkisho name means originally or is derived from "Cayisho" which means in old Somali the "Fat One". Also the other nick name of the Akisho Guure is derived from one who doesn't "hear" because they did not speak Oromo languege when they settled amoung the Bale Arussi in the 1600 century A.D. Similarly, the Gurgure who are very close to the Akisho were refered to Oromo and Somalis as the traders or Gurgure from the old Somali word "gorgortan" which means one who sales and trades.According to the folklore historians of the Southren Suure Dir of the Mudug region, the Akisho and the Gurgure madahweyne Dir produced some of the most famous Somali folk heroes like the famous Somali queen Araweelo who was Warre Miyo and the Somali national hero, Ahmed Ibraahim Gaxsaali better know as Ahmed Gurey who was the ruler of Adal and Ifat.The Akisho (Gurre) clan consists of 12 major subclans:Akisho Waro-Miyo Reer-Warfaa Reer-Dalal Reer-Hawade Reer-Foofiye/Rooble Reer-Agal Reer-Buuke Reer-Naaleye Waro-Bito Waro-Dayo Waro-Luujo Waro-Ito Waro-Kiyo Waro-Heebaan Waro-Kurto Obo Igo Asaabo Eejo Abiju Akiju Heebaana Huumo Jaarso Maya Obara This article about an ethnic group in Africa is a stub.

Awadwar@yahoo.comDear Brothers I would love to thank you first for the wonderful forum. We need someone to promote and rise our awareness about the illustrious Dir clan.The orgin of the Suure nameLet me add an old story about the orgin of the Suure name. As we all know by now Suure was the youngest son of Mahe Dir and he was the last one born to Mahe Dir shortly before he passed away, may Allah bless his soul.It was said by the Dir of old, Mahe Dir one day looked at his youngest son and named him "Suure" which means in old Somali the "Wise one" or literally one who was very intelligent. Know unfortunately, this word is extinct and obsolete in modern Somali,but Suure meant "Intelligent", Wise as in Somali we use today:"Kibir iyo Suure badanaa", which literally means one is full of pride and intelligency. Also the name "suure" is used in the Somali phrase:"Maskax iyo Suure badne""Suurto Gal maaha" "Waa Suuro gal ama waa aqli gal"Therefore, in the old Somali spoken by the Dir Suure use to mean intelligent one or one who is wise. Now, this is why the Dir elders of Mudug used to say, "Suure" meant the wise one and it is the nick name given to the last born of Mahe Dir.

Mansha Allah!Maansha Allah! Bravo! Bravo!This is very interesting and your wonderful analysis is mind boggling. Honestly, I have never asked or even pondered about what the heck "Suure" meant. Isn't it a bitch, the Suure whether Qubeys or Abdaalle are obsessed with the name Dir, but yet no one ever pondered or told us what Suure meant.I think the sad thing about the Suure of Mudug region is they forgot their own name, Suure. Why is it that no one uses the Suure name? Why are we so obsessed with Dir, Dir, Dir and more Dir.Don't misunderstand me, I quite frankly love my "Dirness",but why is it we dont even know out own Suure name and its history?I think it is a damn shame and disgusting the Suure do not use their wonderful name. Everybody in Somali will tell you they know Qubeys, fiqi muhumad, fiqi walaal, agoon, fiqi yahye, nacadoor, dabac,ahmed farah, Etc. But the name Suure is rarely heard.I can tell you what Dir means and we all heard that ten thousand times. That freakin Dir means:1)the ancestor "fir" ama "ab" ama Farac.2) we heard Dir means "Dhiiri" boldness, Dirir "Worrior".3)Dir means "genetically related to" like when somalis said, "neefkan Dirkiisu wuxuu ka soo jeedaa"4)Dir also means "people", "race" or as in old poetry Dir meant People or man.But I have never heard anybody explain Suure and its meaning and I love your wonderful insight.It is extremely neat, fantastic and brillent periodly.You are wise my brother and you, yourself must be some type of a Suure"wise one", Genius, intelligent, and insightful.================================Kibir iyo Suure badanaa", which literally means one is full of pride and intelligency. Also the name "suure" is used in the Somali phrase:"Maskax iyo Suure badne""Suurto Gal maaha" "Waa Suuro gal ama waa aqli gal"Therefore, in the old Somali spoken by the Dir Suure use to mean intelligent one or one who is wise. Now, this is why the Dir elders of Mudug used to say, "Suure" meant the wise one and it is the nick name given to the last born of Mahe Dir.================================

There are some corrections required for this list:1) The Cabdalle Guutale are 4 and their uncle called reer Habar Deel.2)The Rendille of Kenya are a old Dir group who left Somalia long time ago an is settled in Kenya Marsabit. They are currently very mixed with other groups and they are divided into :9 clans sagaalka Lama suule some of them have Ciise sounding names like UUrweyne and Hoolgati
