Nubians are an ethnolinguistic group of Africans indigenous to the modern-day Sudan and Southern Egypt. As the descendants of the early occupants of the central Nile Valley, they are believed to be one of the earliest cradles of civilization. They commonly speak the Nubian language, which is of the Northeastern Sudanic languages.
