The Bafia (Beukpak) people inhabit the Mbam region in the Centre Region of Cameroon. Their origins are said to be similar with those of the Bamun and Tikar people. A division during migratory movements caused the two sets of groups to settle in different areas. Later, the Islamisation of most of the Bamun territory further separated them. A yearly festival held in Fumban (Bamun territory) is considered by many to symbolize the recognition of their common heritage. Their language is Bafia.
