Zulu Bangubangu People "The Bangubangu are now thought to have a shared history with other early hunters (pre-Bembe hunters) who passed through the region, including the Bembe, Boyo, northern Hemba, and Holoholo. All of these peoples share similar carving styles that venerate the ancestors. They originated in the southeast around the Lualaba River and migrated in several waves to their current location near Lake Tanganyika. Like the Hemba, they have also been greatly influenced by their contact with the Luba."

Extractions: Illustrated with objects and antique photographs, this catalogue, which has been published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the city of Boulogne-Billancourt in France and the Caixa Foundation of Girona in Spain, addresses the art of the Plains Indians in all its originality and diversity. It includes essays by five French and Spanish authors who are specialists in Native American history and culture. Their studies explore the history of the Plains Indians, the role of women, religion, and the central importance of Vision in their culture. Although the Plains Indians created no monumental art and little sculpture, their artistic creations such as headdresses and ceremonial garments, horse trappings, weapons, and ritual objects survive as testimony to a unique and rich philosophy of life.

Extractions: Liberia ... Sudan The interim report to the 1996 General Assembly reflects the findings of a field mission by the Special Rapporteur from 1 to 17 July 1996, one week before the coup that brought Major Pierre Buyoya to power and led to the temporary suspension of the National Assembly and political parties. The assessment is clear, with the report stating that the conditions identified in previous reports ... have been deteriorating markedly. The human rights situation in Burundi has assumed catastrophic proportions, with its endless stream of targeted assassinations, arbitrary arrests, forced disappearances, looting, crime and the destruction of private property. While it is true that Burundi currently is being torn apart by civil war, it should be noted at the outset that the resulting violence and unrest can be attributed to certain actors or parties: first and foremost to the armed forces and the security forces, next, to the militias, which are related to them, and, lastly, to an armed opposition that itself comprises various groups. All these actors are responsible, although to varying degrees, for the grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law which are being perpetrated.

Extractions: Yourba Spiritual System and Philosophy There are various religious systems in Africa that share many commonalties. To discuss them all in their intricacies would take volumes. This page will attempt to focus on the Yoruba spiritual philosophy of West Africa. It stresses an extremely ancient rooted African tradition of working with natural forces and the ancestral realm to better one's life. Its system of divination in fact has led some scholars to remark on its similarity to Eastern philosophical beliefs such as those found among the Chinese in the I Ching. And while it may not be as ancient as Nilotic beliefs, it is the African spiritual system that can be best called a world religion. The Yoruba believe in the existence of spiritual beings or divinities. Called Orishas, they are seen as emissaries of Oldumare from whom they emanated. These Orisha are ancestors whose great deeds earned them divinity. The Orisha are said to recognize themselves and are recognized through a host of different numbers and colors. These polarities which each Orisha exhibits are expressed as personalities called Roads or Paths of the Orisha. This is done through offerings to Orisha of their particular favorite foods and other gifts. One can learn much about these different Orishas by watching the forces of nature at work about you. These Orishas can be contacted during a "bembe" where one or more of their priests will be mounted in a form of highly spiritualized trance possession. This possession by an Orisha is an integral part of Yoruba religious ritual as it serves as a means of communicating with the forces of Oldumare (God).

Extractions: Afro-Caribbean music, more than any other music, is characterized by percussion. Percussion instruments are used more prominently in its execution than in any other music. The treasure chest of Caribbean rhythms was enriched by the contributions of three continents. As a result, today's Antillean music beat is produced by beating, shaking, rattling, clapping, and scraping devices that originated among Europeans, Africans and the American indigenous people. Since percussion instruments are the key element in Afro-Caribbean music, a precise definition of the term is in order before we proceed. The Harvard Dictionary of Music defines percussion instruments as follows: The generic name for instruments that are sounded by shaking or striking one object with another. In the general classification of instruments they are divided into two categories, membranophones and idiophones. Membranophones are instruments in which a stretched skin is the sound-producing agent. Idiophones are instruments that consist simply of elastic material (metal, wood) capable of producing sound.
