Abstract:This is a comprehensive study of key Oromo actors in the central Ethiopia traditional provinces of Wällo and Shäwa, specifically the Mammadoch of Wällo and the Tulama of Shäwa during the reigns of Emperors Téwodros II (r.1855-68), Yohannes IV (1872-1888) and Menilek II (1889-1913). The Oromo entered the political arena in the highlands of Ethiopia in the aftermath of Ahmed Grañ's 16 th century invasion, and this work aims to trace not only their roles in the creation of Ethiopia, but also the significant shifts in ethnic identity due to many local and national cultural practices used to endear ethnic groups to each other during the reigns of the aforementioned Emperors. Dominant scholarship generally ignores these Oromo actors and focus on the relationship between the Church and State or on Oromo state construction. I argue that after being cast as Häbäsha , elite Oromo actors, such as Ras Gobana (192?-1888). Fit. Häbtä Giyorgis (184?-1926) and Ras Mikaél (later Negus r. 1914-1916) played key roles in the state and brought it into the modern age during the reign of Menilek, and after when they put one of their own, Iyasu Mikaél, on the throne through an alliance of the Shäwan and Wällo Oromo elites in 1913.
