Embu tribe Embu women Embu women aren’t allowed to wear pants like the men. In this tribe Embu women are mostly like to only wear bright colors and usually only one solid color. Young women are really only women who are allowed to wear jewelry no older women.
Embu tribe The Embu used to wear clothes made of animal (sheep, goat, cattle) skins. Just as the woman men of young age have the right to long hair but when elderly have to be bald.
Embu tribe Traditions In the old days among the Embu, the birth of a child was celebrated as a special event because a child was viewed as the "wealth" of a lineage or clan and also brought recognition and respect to both parents.
Malagasy tribe Malagasy location The Malagasy tribe are found on Madagascar, island located 250 mi off the east coast of Africa, is the fourth largest island in the world, after Greenland, New Guinea, and Borneo.
Malagasy tribe Right of passage An important celebration of Malagasy culture is circumcision. Once a young boy is circumcised, the eldest male in the family is expected to eat the foreskin with a banana.
Malagasy tribe Crafts Madagascar is known for its basket weaving and painting on silk.
Malagasy tribe Beliefs Malagasy ancestor worship includes a celebration known as the famadiahana (turning over the dead). Each year, ancestors‘ bodies are removed from the family tomb and the corpses are rewrapped in a fresh shroud cloth.
Sotho Sotho location The Sotho people is an ethnic group living in Lesotho and South Africa. There are two major branches, the southern Sotho and the northern Sotho Southern Sotho people make up about 99% of the population of Lesotho. The southern Sotho and the northern Sotho taken together are the second largest ethnic group in South Africa.
Sotho Sotho way of eating Sotho people share many food traditions with the other peoples of South Africa. Staple foods are corn (maize ), eaten in the form of a thick paste, and bread. Beef, chicken, and mutton are popular meats, while milk is often drunk in soured form. The South African form of sorghum beer, brewed at home or store- bought, is more nutritious than Western beer. The major mealtimes are breakfast and dinner (in the evening). Children may go without lunch, although there are some school lunch programs
Sotho After 1845, the Pedi also had to contend with an influx of white Afrikaner settlers, some of whom seized Pedi children and forced them to work as slaves whom they euphemistically labeled "servants".
Aka tribe Aka people About 30,000 Aka live in the tropical forests of southern Central African Republic and northern Congo, generally between 1° and 4° N latitude.
Aka tribe Aka do not have televisions, radios, or books. They do not have electricity, so after it gets dark they sit around fires to socialize, gossip, tell stories (often about gorillas or chimps having affairs with humans) and dance and sing. Dances usually occur about twice a week, but they are every night during caterpillar season or when hunting is especially good.
Aka tribe Relationship between men and women Women have their own dances and songs in which they ridicule men. Spouses can and do ridicule each other by joking, including not so nice remarks about the size and shape of a partner's genitals, but for the most part the partner does not pay much attention to such ridicule. Men and women contribute equally to a household's diet, a husband or wife can initiate divorce, and violence against women is very rare (no cases of rape have been reported).
Dyula RELIGION The Dyula are all Muslim and have been ever since their arrival in their present location. Indeed, Islam and trade were (and still are) closely associated throughout much of West Africa, especially in the savanna up to five times a day or week.
Dyula Until about 40 years ago, wrestling was the most popular sport among Dyula boys. Individuals and teams from each clan neighborhood would regularly compete with one another. However, the sport has lapsed. Now, soccer is undoubtedly the favorite sport, as is true in much of Africa.
Dyula Location Most Dyula people trace their origins back to the land of Manden, the heartland of the great medieval empire of Mali, along what is now the border of the modern nations of Guinea and Mali.
Mossi Crafts Pottery is limited to the one clan of potters and drummers. For those Mossi communities that have masked dancing, the carving and painting of masks is a major art form; Mossi masks are in most major collections of African art.
Mossi Sports Traditional Mossi society had little time. There were games like Warri, in which stone or seed counters are moved in pits on a board or in the dirt in a game of strategy aimed at capturing the opponent's pieces. Military training required practice with swords, spears, and bows and arrows.
Mossi Because of extensive migration to more prosperous neighboring countries, Mossi also are the second-largest ethnic group in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast ). The Mossi occupied the interior lands within the "boucle de Niger" and thus controlled trade between the empires along the great Niger River and the forest kingdoms to their south.
Algerians Location The country is located in North Africa on the Mediterranean Sea. It is situated to the west of Libya and Tunisia and east of Morocco. The north is relatively fertile and mountainous. The south includes part of the Sahara desert. In all, more than four- fifths of the country is desert.
Algerians After independence, Algeria became a one-party socialist state ruled by the National Liberation Front (FLN), which had led the War of Independence. Many European companies were nationalized. French law was maintained on many civil issues, although Islamic traditions were also given representation in the law of the land. Algeria announced a strict policy of non- alignment, allying with neither the Soviet Union nor the United States.
Tanzanians In rural regions, Muslim men usually wear a long embroidered cotton gown, or kanzu, with a matching skull cap. Muslim women often wear a kanga consisting of two or three pieces of brightly colored fabric wrapped around them and covering their head.
