Extractions: People Profile Click here to see a map of Mozambique The Shangaan Religion: Christianity; Traditional Animism Population: 1,600,000 Status: 56% Professed Christian Location: The greatest concentration of Shangaan people is in the southern Mozambiquan province of Gaza. Smaller concentrations live in portions of the provinces of Inhambane, Maputo, Manica and Sofala. The Shangaan people also live in eastern portions of the Republic of South Africa, and eastern and southern Zimbabwe. There is also a very small population of Shangaan people living in Swaziland. International borders were established long after the arrival of these people in this area of Africa. There are basically no significant concentrations of Shangaan people living in Mozambique north of the Zambezi River, which more or less divides the country in two. The capital city of Maputo is now home to large numbers of Shangaan people as well, despite the major people group of the city being people of the Ronga group. History: It is believed that ancestors of the Shangaan, who now primarily inhabit an area in southern Mozambique, originated farther north nearer the more central part of Africa. As these people moved into the southern area of Africa, they settled in places where they could carry on their traditional and pastoral way of life. More recently, the Shangaan came into their present area from farther south, as Soshangana fled with his people from the Zulu massacres of Shaka. Various clans made up the overall Shangaan people group. These clans were ruled by kings who held absolute authority. All the members of the clan were subject to him and he made all the major decisions. This social structure began to undergo changes as the influence of Portuguese colonialism increased.

Extractions: People Profile The Tswa People Religion: Christianity, Traditional Animism Population: 1,060,000 (1996 estimate) Status: 50% Professed Christianity; 20-25% Evangelical Location: The greatest concentration of Tswa people is in the southern Mozambiquan province of Inhambane. Smaller concentrations live in portions of the provinces of Gaza, Maputo, Manica and Sofala. The Tswa people also live in eastern portions of the Republic of South Africa, and eastern and southern Zimbabwe. International borders were established long after the arrival of these people in this area of Africa. There are basically no significant concentrations of Tswa people living in Mozambique north of the Zambezi River, which more or less divides the country in two. The capital city of Maputo is now home to quite a few Tswa people as well, despite the major people group of the city being people of the Ronga group. Identity: The name of this people in their language is Vatswa. The singular form is Mutswa. They are often referred to, especially by outsiders, as Tswa, following the patterns of English grammar. The Tswa people are part of a larger language/people group called the Tsonga (Vatsonga). The Tsonga encompass three sub-groups: the Ronga, Tswa and Tsonga (Shangaan). These three groups are very similar in practically every respect. They originated from the same indigenous Bantu peoples who came down from the north to inhabit much of what is now called southern Mozambique and portions of several bordering countries.

Extractions: From the very beginning, the indigenous peoples of these communal areas became the driving force behind the CAMPFIRE programme. The Tonga, Venda, Ndau, Ndebele and Shangaan people of Zimbabwe became responsible for managing their own natural resources and were able to retain significant benefits at the village and ward level. In 1989, the Nyaminyami and Guruve Rural District Councils became the first two districts recognized as the owners of the wildlife resources in their communal land areas. By early 1991, a further ten districts had been given appropriate authority, with another 12 at various stages of the approval process. Within four years CAMPFIRE was providing 6.9 million Zimbabwe dollars a year in direct benefits to over 500,000 people. In 1998, it provided Zimbabwe with $70 million (US$1.9 million) in benefits to over three million Zimbabweans in 35 of Zimbabwe's 56 districts.

Extractions: Population: This former Portuguese colony is home to over twenty million people and to the largest unreached group in Africa possibly the world! It has the largest concentration of unreached peoples in Africa south of the equator. It is also considered to be one of the poorest countries on the globe. Mozambique was a Portuguese colony for more than four hundred years before attaining independence in 1975. During those years the colonial government recognized only the Catholic Church resulting in persecution of those calling themselves "Protestant". With independence came the establishment of communism so the persecution extended to all recognized as Christians. Although the Marxist ideology of the government continued until the early 1990's, beginning in 1982, missionaries, who had been expelled at independence, were allowed to re-enter. The government recognized the need for the support of everyone possible, including the evangelical churches. Despite the fact that missionary work in the country was non-existent between 1975 and 1982, the evangelical church grew quite rapidly among the Lomwe living in Zambezi Province.

The site not only gave you some history, but also shows you on the map what area these artworks were from and a quick overview about the piece of art.

Extractions: Colorado State University No. 19 August, September and October 1996 Spotlight on Science Featuring: Kathy Galvin Sr. Research Scientist - Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory Kathy Galvin recently returned from a workshop on "Reducing Climate-Related Vulnerability" in southern Africa held in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe (Oct. 1-4), sponsored by NOAA and NASA. It is well known that El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects the pattern of short-term climate in southern Africa. Now successes in model-based ENSO forecasting means that, soon, predictive capabilities in rainfall events will be enhanced. Discussed at the workshop was utility of those forecasts for southern Africa, how sectors such as agriculture (commercial and subsistence), food security, health, and water could use these forecasts, and what is needed from the forecasting side and the user side. With the focus still on Africa, Kathy is a member of a team (Mike Coughenour, PI; Dave Swift; Dennis Child and Larry Rittenhouse, RES; Jim DeMartini, Pathology; Ann Magennis, Anthropology; James Else, Advisor to the Ugandan government; Robin Reid, ILRI, Terry McCabe, CU; and Paul Rwambo, Kenya) who just received funding (Oct. 1996) from USAID-SR-CRSP to plan and build a team to develop a system to link livestock development with biodiversity conservation in spatially extensive pastoral ecosystems in East Africa.
