Tanzania: Culture
CULTURE A marriage, is of some importance not only to those involved in the marriage, but to the community as a whole. Bride wealth, and mode of payment varied from one ethnic group to another. Among cattle-keeping people, cattle were the kind of payment, but beer, cloth, meat, money were widely used by other ethnic groups. The role of kin is still central to Tanzanian social and recreational life. Visiting kin on joyous and sorrowful family occasions is given high priority despite the inconvenience caused by a relatively undeveloped transport system. Educated members of the extended family are frequently held responsible for the education and welfare of younger siblings. Colonial rule brought about many changes in chieftainship; in any case the actions and demands of colonial administrators and chiefs led to a situation in which chiefs were always in conflict with their people, not responsible and responsive to them but to the colonial act of governing. Immediately after independence, chieftainship was abolished, and administrative officials were elected, however, it continued to exist informally as a social and geographic unit, especially in remote areas. Another social form introduced to replace chieftainship is what is known as Council of Elders. The councils have some form of authority and deals with a wide range of social issues. In some groups (Masai for example), the division of labor by age prevailed as a determinant factor in the individual allocation of rights and duties. Today Tanzania's multiethnic and multiracial population practices a variety of traditions and customs that form a rich cultural heritage

home search help worldguide ... Related Weblinks
Tanzania's 100 or more different tribal groups are mostly of Bantu origin. The Arab influence on Zanzibar and Pemba islands is evident in the people, who are a mix of Shirazia (from Persia), Arabs, Comorians (from the Comoros Islands) and Bantu from the mainland, though the latter predominate. Asians are a significant minority especially in the towns and cities. Europeans (either by descent or expatriate) are a smaller minority. The major non-Bantu people on the mainland are the Masai (Nilotic speakers) who inhabit the north-eastern section of the country. Swahili and English are the official languages, with English the principal language of commerce. There are also many local African tongues, reflecting the tribal diversity of the country. Outside the cities and towns, far fewer local people speak English than in comparable areas in Kenya. It's said that the Swahili spoken on Zanzibar is of a much purer form than elsewhere, and quite a few travellers head for the island to learn it. The two main religions are Christianity and Islam, with Hindus making up about a quarter of the population. The majority of Muslims are concentrated along the coast and in the islands. Compared to Islam, Christianity took a long time to make an impact, and even then (during the 19th century) it was practiced mainly among tribes of the interior. There are still many tribes who follow neither of the big-name religions and instead worship the ancient spirit of their choice. Principal among them are the Masai, who put their faith in the god Engai and his Messiah, Kindong'oi, from whom their priests are said to be descended. It's claimed that there is no religious bias present in the country's political and civil administration.

Kenya Culture, Population and Tribes The population of Kenya is about 28 million. Almost all are of African descent. The largest minorities are Asians, Europeans and Arabs. These three minority groups together represent less than 1% of the population. The official languages are Swahili and English There are over 70 tribes found in Kenya. The majority of the tribes are descendants of just two language groups, the Bantu of Western Africa, and the Nilotic from the Nile Valley. As the larger cities attract more people, and as Kenya becomes more like the West, fewer and fewer Kenyans live a traditional tribal life. Tanzania Culture, Population and Tribes The population of Tanzania is around 29 million people. Like Kenya, almost all of the population is of African descent.

The majority of the tribes in Tanzania, like the tribes in Kenya, belong to two language groups, the Bantus of Western Africa, and the Nilotics of the Nile Valley. The largest tribe of Nilotics descendants are the Maasai (also spelled Masai).

    It may be difficult, however, to strike a balance between giving valuable support and nonetheless preventing the governments of the countries concerned from thinking they can forget about their responsibility for their own culture, since others are taking care of it. When the cultural sector is undergoing progress, there is evidence that governments take pride in attending to it. For the sector to grow, cultural programmes within strategic country-frame planning will still be needed. Governments can also be alerted to the scope for introducing tax exemption for local private businesses and individuals who contribute to the cultural sector.

Political Relations Political dialogue between the two countries is close on bilateral basis and within the framework of the European Union.

    The Masai are more commonly associated with Kenya Ngorongoro Crater of Tanzania The lives of the Masai centres around cattle herding. They believe God entrusted the cattle to the Masai people, and wealth is measured in number of cattle.
    The they are known for their tradition of hair plaits, heavy iron necklaces, and fierce warriormanship, often depicted carrying a spear. The Masai's unique hair is a clear living symbol of their tradition and culture. By wearing the plaits, it proves the individual is a true Morani sticking to their own traditions. The Masai drink cows blood which they believe makes the body stronger and warmer and is good for children and the elderly to build up their strength. It is often drunk mixed with the milk of the cow.
    For the boys, 15 is the coming of age ritual, when they become circumcised and become Morani (young warriors), formally they would hunt a lion with a spear during the rites of passage ceremony but lion hunting is now illegal.

    culture. Three great events have shaped the life of tanzania's people the historyof the movement and mixture of African ethnic groups over the last two
    Three great events have shaped the life of Tanzania's people: the history of the movement and mixture of African ethnic groups over the last two millennia, nearly a thousand years of Arab influence, and the imposition of European colonial rule. Each of these events have required Tanzanians to adapt to new physical and human social arrangements and have contributed to the distinctive cultures of the people who inhabit the country. Today Tanzania's multiethnic and multiracial population practices a variety of traditions and customs that forms a rich cultural heritage [1] . Kinship provides the foundation for interpersonal relations and group formation in Tanzanian culture. This pattern can be traced to the earliest recorded periods and continues to the present time. Kin ties through parentage and marriage define an individual's social rights, obligations, and opportunities. This said, the nature of kin ties varies greatly from one ethnic group to another. Given the centrality of such familial origination to Tanzanian society, marriage is of particular importance not only to the immediate family but to the community as a whole. As in earlier European and American history, the economic side of marriage is recognized in such exchanges as bridewealth. These exchanges have traditionally varied from one ethnic group to another. Among cattle-keeping people, for example, cattle constituted the main form of payment. Beer, cloth, meat, money were widely used by other ethnic groups.
