Fula Americans or Fulbe Americans are Americans of Fula (Fulbe) descent.

The first Fulbe people that emigrated to United States exported from several parts of West and Central Africa. Many Fulbe came of places as Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Cameroon. So, most of the people that came from Senegal belonged to ethnic groups Mandinga and Fula.[2]
