415 Kumi Nation

415 Kumi Nation was formed in the mid 80's by members of the Black Guerrilla Family (BGF) at San Quentin State Prison. Prior to the creation of KUMI or K.A.N.O. (KUMI AFRICAN NATION ORGANIZATION), the founding members became unsatisfied with the BGF leadership, so they broke away from BGF and formed 415 Kumi Nation , which is the area code for parts of California's Bay Area. They began using the Swahili word "KUMI" (Koo-me) meaning "10" (the sum of 415 is 10.) Since the creation of KUMI, they have grown in numbers. There are documented KUMI members in every Prison within California. 415 Kumi Nation only recruited black inmates from California's Bay Area, but now recruits from Black gangs all over California.

The 415 Kumi and BGF have had numerous conflicts but have also worked together depending on the prison environment. 415 KUMI members have recently provided recruitment pools for the BGF. In the Monterey County Jail, brief alliances have been reported among the Bloods, Crips, and 415 Kumi Nation during period leading up to Stanley Tookie Williams' execution.

The gang has been reported to use prison guards to authorize violence against fellow inmates, such as the case in August of 2003 when former correctional officer Leon Holston was charged with aiding and abetting, battery with serious bodily injury, filing a false report by a peace officer and unlawful communication with a prisoner (Associated Press Newswires 9 Sep 2004).

They have been reported in:

* Salinas Valley State Prison
* Folsom State Prison
* Monterey County Jail
* Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga
* selected areas across East County, California.
