Where Are they Located?
The Mser people live in the northern part of Cameroon. Six Mser villages exist in Cameroon, and four are in Chad. While some Mser people live in the town of Kousseri, most live in villages. These villages may not be accessible during rainy season. The survey team visited only one Mser village in Cameroon, so the situation in the other villages is unknown.
What Are Their Lives Like?
Traditionally, village chiefs and Sultans rule over them. The Mser language is one of the Kotoko languages. They refer to their own language as simply Kotoko. The Mser language is not written. An SIL team working in another Kotoko language is providing training in Orthography, Grammar, and Literacy so that the Mser can begin to develop their own language.
What Are Their Beliefs?
Islam dominates as the primary religion. Whether or not there are Mser Christians is unknown.
