(i)

BUUMI (many variations : Buumy, Bumy, Bumi, etc.) was a Serer royal title in the Serer pre-colonial Kingdoms of Sine , Saloum
Saloum
and previously Baol . All these pre-colonial Serer kingdoms are now part of modern-day Senegal
Senegal
. However, present-day Gambia
Gambia
, was called Lower Saloum
Saloum
and a former colony of the Kingdom of Saloum. The Buumi
Buumi
always a member of the royal family. He was the first in line to inherit the throne of the Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
(King of Sine) or Maad Saloum (king of Saloum). In some cases, a Buumi
Buumi
can act as regent if the king is too young, as was the case with Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
Ama Joof Gnilane Faye Joof , whose uncle was appointed regent until Maad Ama Joof became much older. In pre-colonial Sine, the Buumi
Buumi
usually took residence at Somb Rongodior . In many cases, he was elected by the Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
as his successor, however, the Great Jaraff and his Noble Council of Electors generally decides which member of the royal family succeeds to the throne. When Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
dies without nominating his Buumi, as was the case with Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
Mbackeh Ndeb Njie, the "thilas " (the second in line to the throne) may succeed him as was the case with Maad a Sinig
Maad a Sinig
Kumba Ndoffene Fa Ndeb Joof .

The Buumi
Buumi
was a very important figure in the Serer kingdoms. They had their own army and also led a contingent force of the country in times of war. At The Battle of Fandane-Thiouthioune (18 July 1867) also known as the Battle of Somb, the Buumi
Buumi
Somb commanded the army of eastern Sine. In the Kingdom of Saloum, which had a very similar political structure as the Kingdom of Sine, the two most important Buumis were : the Buumi
Buumi
Kaymor ( Buumi
Buumi
of Kaymor) and Buumi
Buumi
Mandak ( Buumi
Buumi
of Mandak). They both took residence at Kaymor and Mandak (in Saloum), respectively. In Sine, there was also the Buumi
Buumi
Nguess (Buumi of Nguess ) and Buumi
Buumi
Ndidor ( Buumi
Buumi
of Ndidor ). Although they were all important figures, they should not be confused with the "Buumi" (their heir apparent ).
