The Aboriginal People in South Africa

by Deng Qilin
(Chofu,Tokyo)

If South Africa is being referred to, the first picture coming into my brain will be a group of the Aboriginal People who wear colorful clothes, dancing with the drum in front of their thatched cottage with care-free smiling and spirited singing.

There are so many kinds of Aboriginal People in South Africa and Zulu is one of them.

Zulu occupies the major ethnic black population in South Africa. "Zulu" means heaven in the Zulu language, so Zulus are called Residents of the Sky. They are divided into different tribes while each tribe has its own chiefs.

They still follow the tradition of polygamy which means one man can have many wives. As long as the family has cattle, you can exchange for a wife. So the more cattle, the more wives. Unmarried women do not wear tops while the married women must be non-exposed.

As society advances, today's tribes are also prevalent with free love. An unmarried woman can give her favorite homemade colored beads to men as an act of love.
