The term "Fuzzy Wuzzy" originated in the 1800s. British Soldiers gave the nickname, "fuzzy wuzzy" to the Hadendoa warriors that were a nomadic tribe along the Red Sea in Sudan. The Hadendoa were a formidable fighting force that gained the respect of the better trained British forces. The Hadendoa warriors wore their hair matted which gave a "fuzzy" appearance. The British were eventually victorious over the Fuzzy Wuzzies but with a greater fight than other enemies. Rudyard Kippling wrote a poem praising the Hadendoa warriors for their fighting skills.
Today Fuzzy Wuzzy is known more as the nursery rhyme many of us learned as children. There are many variations of this poem. The one I learned was: Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?
