Pan-Hornism[change | change source]
The biggest ethnic group which lives in the Horn of Africa are the Cushites. Cushites include people like Afars, Oromos, and Sidama. Some people said that its a good idea for Cushites to help each other with making money and politics. This aim is sometimes called Pan-Hornism.

The Horn of Africa became famous for taking longer to be colonized than other African countries. Those countries which fought back were Ethiopia, led by Menelik II, and the Daraawiish State, led by Ismail Mire.
