    List of African Tribes

    Numerous tribes in Africa are geographically and linguistically related and often share the same traditions and customs.  Since the majority of sub-Saharan African tribes originated in central and west Africa.  They migrated across the continent for a variety of causes, and their shared main origin is seen in their shared root languages. The Saharan and northern tribes were influenced by Arabic in terms of language, culture, and traditions.  Numerous tribal tribes felt pressure to relocate further south on the African continent as a result of the growth of Islam, the Arab slave trade, and conflict. The Khoi and San indigenous peoples of southern Africa were forced into more remote locations as a result of the spread of the central African tribes.  In contrast to the majority of African tribes, the Khoi san (Bushmen) are part of a far earlier prehistoric grouping than the San.  It’s noteworthy to note that the first black African tribes did not arrive in what is now known as the Transkei region of South Africa until the 16th or 17th century in the extreme southeast of southern Africa.

    The Map of Africa – Africa Facts Zone

    Africa’ The Birthplace of Mankind Since for Africa, experts had earlier determined that it is the origin of mankind, as enormous quantities of human-like fossils (discovered no where else) were uncovered on the continent, some going back 3.5 million years. About 1.75 million years ago, early man expanded over areas of Africa.  They were ferocious hunters, lived in caves and needed fire and their skills to produce stone tools merely to survive. Around 200,000 years ago, the Neanderthals emerged and spread throughout southern Europe and portions of northern Africa.  There is also convincing evidence that they possessed control of fire, lived in caves, as well as open-air constructions of stone and plants. The invention of stone tools was one of prehistoric man’s most significant innovations.  By 5000 BC, farming had become relatively widespread in northern Africa, where humans were raising crops and managing cattle.  During that time the Sahara Desert was a productive place. History: Ancient Africa In 3200 BC the Egyptian civilization evolved on the lower banks of the Nile River; it was among the oldest civilizations and its tools and weapons were fashioned of bronze.  They also pioneered the building of enormous pyramids and temples.…

    Green, Gold, and Red  What do these colors in RasTafari represent?

    What do the colors red, gold, and green mean in RasTafari?  Why do the colors red, gold, and green hold such special meaning for the faith? I frequently get across the subject of what the Red, Gold, and Green in Ras Tafari symbolize and where they come from.  People are particularly interested in the history of these colors, which stand for those of us who practice this faith. The official flag of Ethiopia also has the colors Red, Gold, and Green.  The Solomonic dynasty of the Ethiopian Empire used this tricolored image as their official flag. The Ethiopian Solomonic dynasty, of which His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I was the root and progeny, served as the inspiration for the colors that the Ras Tafari religion embraced.
