The Jabari were a small tribe of Wakanda with a special connection to gorillas.[5] They used to be known by another name, but began calling themselves the Jabari in honor of one of their greatest warriors, who gave his life for his people.[6]

After the death of King T'Chaka, the Jabari began the cult of the sacred White Gorilla, a practice that was considered blashphemy by more fundamentalist tribes. A war erupted, as the Jabari fought to retain their faith, but, when they began plans to conquer all of Wakanda, the new king T'Challa condemned the tribe and dispersed them throughout the country.[4]
