A rich diversity of ancient and proud societies
T here are strengths and weaknesses attached to the study of Africa through a focus on the continent's diverse and numerous peoples. The strengths are that the continent is reduced to a more manageable size, the diversity and the rich traditions of Africa's peoples are accentuated, and the similiarities and differences among peoples everywhere in the world can be identified and analyzed. Finally, a study of the particularities of discrete societies throughout the African continent cha llenges the misperception of Africa as an undifferentiated mass of peoples. The attendant weaknesses in this approach are that Africa's population of 735 million may be reduced to exotic images and stereotypes of one or another African society or they may remain frozen in the context of the particular historical period or geog raphic locale being studied. In the introdution to his book, The Shona and their Neighbours (Beach 1994), historian David Beach (University of Zimbabwe) clearly delineates the traps that can ensnare the unwary in a study of the peoples of Africa. H e takes, as just one example, the rock paintings and stone buildings for which inhabitants of the Zimbabwean plateau are reknowned. "From the standpoint of Shona studies," Beach points out, "[the paintings and buildings] have been both a blessing and a cu rse. On the one hand, the sheer beauty of the former attracted many of the minority of educated whites into the discipline of archaeology, but it also ensured that they devoted their attention to a period and people fairly remote from the [modern-day] Sho na and their recent neighbours." Clearly, as Beach suggests, the particularlities and generalities must be kept in proper balance at all times.

send me this essay

9 pages in length. The very essence of globalization is that of change, to relearn stable and familiar ways in order to make room for ever-growing progress. While this concept would appear to reflect beneficial movement for global societies, the relevance to lifelong learning actually represents advancement at the detrimental social, political and economic expense of myriad unsophisticated societies. As such, this dichotomy of progression has rendered globalization a much-contested concept. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

south africa ... Indigenous peoples angry over document wording September 05, 2001, 16:45 "We are in South Africa, with apartheid six short years ago, yes, I'm hopeful...", says Madonna Thunder Hawk, who is taking part in a demonstration for indigenous peoples' rights at the World Conference Against Racism. It is a "giant step" to have indigenous issues being discussed at an international meeting, she says, having travelled to Durban, from South Dakota to represent the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Reservation and to show solidarity with other indigenous groups.
"What happens here trickles down directly," she says. Indigenous peoples from all corners of the world, who have gathered in the east coast city for the UN World Conference Against Racism are drawing inspiration from what South Africa has achieved in breaking free of its apartheid chains, seven years ago in fact, in 1994.
At a round table discussion, attended by Mary Robinson, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the conference's secretary general, they queued up at the microphone with individual stories, but a collective plight.

    The Dorobo Peoples of Kenya and Tanzania Population
    : Animism
    Status : 1% Christian Location : The "Dorobo" are not one tribe. Rather, the term Dorobo referred to the original forest-dwelling hunters in the Rift Valley of what is now Kenya and Tanzania. These peoples live in scattered groups in the plains of the Rift Valley and the forests of the neighboring escarpments. History : Southern Cushite peoples, followed by Eastern Cushites, settled in East Africa's Rift Valley during the first millennium after Christ. They found San (Bushmen) peoples already here. Bantu traditions refer to these early peoples whom their ancestors found there. Early Nilotes, then various waves of Bantu and later Nilotes subsequently came into the area. The Kikuyu refer to a people in Central Province as the Athi (the ground people), after the source the names Athi Plains and Athi River. Oral traditions say the Kikuyu paid the Athi to move into their land. The Athi seem to be either the Cushites or the original San people. (The Sandawe and the Hadzapi in northern Tanzania still speak San languages. The Bantu name "Twa" for the pygmies in Rwanda-Burundi-Zaire is the same word the Zulus use for the Khoisan click-language speakers they found in their early migrations into what is now Natal Province. There is still a San tribe there today called Twa.)

    East Africa enjoys an extraordinary degree of social and cultural diversity, with representatives of all four of the major cultures families of the continent occurring in the region. How did this cultural variety arise, how does it relate to environmental diversity we find in East Africa? Amidst diversity how has the region evolved a high degree of social commonality and cohesion? This course will provide academic context for pursuing field study in East Africa. Including team teaching it will offer background to the history, politics, languages, and cultures of the region, and will focus on study of those societies visited during the program. These will include representatives of the major cultures of the region: Bantu, Nilotic and Cushitic-speakers. The course will includes an introductory overview of the peopling of East Africa, the emergence of ethic groups and evolution of the human use of natural resources, drawing on recent work in genetics archaeology, historical linguistic, and pre-colonial history. We will examine reports written by early explorers, who describe peoples encountered and their own responses to them, and will ask whether these documents reflect accurate accounts of East African societies, and in what ways might they be biased? We will investigate the structure and function of some major social institutions that characterize East Africa s culture groups, among them: local forms of agrarian economy, indigenous environmental knowledge; environmental adaptations, territory and political organization; kinship, age-organization, family, and domestic life; and cultural traditions ; oral literature, ritual, religion and music.

    Features of Africa
    Africa is the second-largest continent , after Asia, covering 30,330,000 sq km; about 22% of the total land area of the Earth. It measures about 8,000 km from north to south and about 7,360 km from east to west. The highest point on the continent is Mt. Kilimanjaro - Uhuru Point - (5,963 m/19,340 ft) in Tanzania. The lowest is Lake 'Asal (153 m/502 ft below sea level) in Djibouti. The Forests cover about one-fifth of the total land area of the continent.
    The Woodlands, bush lands, grasslands and thickets occupy about two-fifth.
    And the Deserts and their extended margins have the remaining two-fifths of African land. World's longest river : The River Nile drains north-eastern Africa, and, at 6,650 km (4,132 mi), is the longest river in the world. It is formed from the Blue Nile, which originates at Lake Tana in Ethiopia, and the White Nile, which originates at Lake Victoria. World's second largest lake : Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa and the is the world's second-largest freshwater lake - covering an area of 69,490 sq km (26,830 sq mi) and lies 1,130 m (3,720 ft) above sea level. Its greatest known depth is 82 m (270 ft).

    African People and Cultures The people and cultures of Africa are as diverse as its geography. North of the Sahara the inhabitants are a mixture of Arab stock with indigenous peoples such as the Berbers. Egypt, Libya, and the Maghreb (Arabic for "west," comprising Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco) have strong cultural and ethnic ties with the Arabic Middle East. In many ways they are more a part of that world than of Africa south of the Sahara. Arab influence is also strong in East Africa, where intermarriage of Arabs with the local Bantu produced the distinctive Swahili culture, and in Western and Central Africa just south of the Sahara. Hamito-Semitic peoples are found in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia and Somalia), as well as in Egypt, while the extreme southwestern part of the continent is the home of certain Khoisan peoplesthe Bushmen and Hottentots. Most of the rest of the continent is dominated by black peoples of various ethnic groups. Anthropologists have identified almost 3,000 different ethnic groups or peoples in Africa. For the most part, Europeans who planned to settle in Africa went to the southern parts of the continent. The Dutch arrived in South Africa as early as the mid-17th century, settling first in the Cape and then moving north, where they fought a series of wars with the Africans. Later, the British also settled in South Africa, principally in Natal, as well as in Northern and Southern Rhodesia (now Zambia and Zimbabwe) and in the Eastern Highlands. The Germans went to South-West Africa (Namibia) and the Portuguese to Angola and Mozambique.

    Dissertation: "Digo Discontents and the Future of Conservation Illusions in Kenya." My research contributes to a growing field of political ecology studies, and draws attention to the complexities of using the concept of indigenous peoples in natural resource management discourse. By analyzing historical processes, fluid Digo identities, local-level political events, and Digo responses to "others," I argue that the two distinct conservation projects operating in Kenya influence and are influenced by Digo cultural beliefs and practices Areas of Specialization: political ecology; global to local conservation theories and practices; indigenous peoples and cultural change; Digo (Mijikenda) ethnography.
