Like many other ethnic groups living in the Northern Cameroon, people of Mindif have kept some of their ancestral traditions. Beside the attractive modern life, they continue to use their culture and traditions as references of their identities. This was made possible by a strong ruling policy exercised by the different Lamibé (sing: Lamido – king) of Mindif.
