Nuba: Heiban...
"The name Nuba does not designate various forms of a single
language.   Rather it is a collective geographical term, referring
generally to tribes living in the Nuba Mountains of Kordofan
Province, in central Sudan.   Driven into this area long ago by
Arab incursions or the later slave raids of the 17th to 19th
centuries, numerous tribes of different origins and different
languages chose the isolation and easy defense of this moun-
tainous region.   Although there is no common Nuba language,
a general cultural affinity does exist among the Nuba groups.
Many Nuba tribes have adopted the name of the hill area within
which they live.

The Heiban people, who number about 25,000 in the Heiban
area of southern Kordofan, speak a Koalib (Koalib-Tagoi)
language, related to the Moro and Otoro dialects and Nirere."
