Kano first became known to the outside world after the visit of Leo Africanus in A.D. 1513. Tradition has it that the earliest settlers found in the area were the Abagayawa whose ancestor called Kano was said to have migrated from Gaya in the vicinity of Kano town in search of iron-stone and charcoal. The small settlemennt evolved some sort of patrilineal organisational struccture at the apex of which was a man called Barbushe - a hunter, a priest, an able leader and a man of ennormous stature. Tradition credits him with so much prowess and strength he was, according to oral tradition, able to kill an elephant with a stick and carry it on his back. Barbushe was the high priest of the supreme deity, Tsumburbura, around whose worship this small and peaceful community was built. The shrine of this deity was sited at a tree on the Dala Hill. The apparent tranquility pervading the fabrics of the Abagayawa society neighbouring communities. Consequently, these communities began to migrate and settle among the Abagayawa. Amongst them (it is strongly believed) was the belligerent group led by Bagauda. This group quickly established its ascendancy over the original inhabitants and the latter's capitulation sealed their fate. The dynasty established by Kano thus came to an end and the reignns of power changed hands. This cataclysmic development also ushered in a new era, that of the Habe dynasty.
