Djibouti, a small country in the Horn of Africa, was part of a region colonized by the French and was part of the Land of Punt in the ancient past. In the late-19th century, French Somaliland was established when ruling Somali and Afar sultans signed the land over to France. From 1862 until 1894, the land to the north of the Gulf of Tadjoura was called Obock and was ruled by Issa Somalis and Afar Sultanates, local authorities with whom France signed various treaties between 1883 and 1887 to first gain a foothold in the region.
