Abstract: "The nature of indigenous and post-colonial 'traditional' rural Africa, and the constraints or challenges this poses to the current maintenance and practical use of TEK, including the future transmission among indigenous Africans and development planners alike are examined. Main traditional livelihoods and land-use practices which sustainably exploit the ecosystem include sedentary and shifting agriculture, nomadic pastoralism, hunting, fishing, food gathering, rain forest use and limited agroforestry for food materials and medicines, etc. This is demonstrated, where possible, with case studies involving the following regions of African tribal groups: KenyaMaasai; TanzaniaPare, Zaramo, Luguru; Niger Fulani; and the San of the Kalahari. "A few promising options for development agencies to improve their understanding of dynamics of renewable resource management were outlined for integrating TEK into modern resource planning techniques such as environmental assessment and proactive environmental programming. Other promising TEK management applications include: i) Adaptive environmental management approach' ii) Participative rapid rural appraisal; iii) Popular education; and iv) Indigenous peoples and habitat conservation areas."

BANTU LANGUAGES North Central africa may have followed it everywhere among the Bantu peoples somewhat archaic Bantu dialect, indigenous probably to the East Nguru, Zeguha, Kimrima and Ki-zaramo. http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/B/BA/BANTU_LANGUAGES.htm
Extractions: BANTU LANGUAGES. The greater part of Africa south of the equator possesses but one linguistic family so far as its native inhabitants are concerned. This clearly-marked division of human speech has been entitled the Bantu, a name invented by Dr W. H. I. Bleek, and it is, on the whole, the fittest general term with which to designate the most remarkable group of African languages. 2 From this statement are excepted those tongues classified as semi-Bantu. In some languages of the Lower Niger and of the Gold Coast the word for fowl is generally traceable to a root kuba. This form kuba also enters the Cameroon region, where it exists alongside of -koko. Kuba may have arisen independently, or have been derived from the Bantu kuku. etymology of word-roots is concerned. Further evidence of slight etymological and even grammatical relationships may be traced as far west as the lower Niger and northern and western Gold Coast languages (and, in some word-roots, the Mandingo group). The Fula language would offer some grammatical resemblance if its suffixes were turned into prefixes (a change which has actually taken place in the reverse direction in the English language between its former Teutonic and its modern Romanized conditions; cf. offset and set-off, upstanding and standing-up ). The legends and traditions of the Bantu peoples themselves invariably point to a northern origin, and a period, not wholly removed from their racial remembrance, when they were strangers in their present lands. Seemingly the Bantu, somewhat early in their migration down the east coast, took to the sea, and not merely occupied the islands of Pemba and Zanzibar, but travelled as far afield as the Comoro archipelago and even the west coast of Madagascar. Their invasion of Madagascar must have been fairly considerable in numbers, and they doubtless gave rise to the race of black people known traditionally to the Hovas as the. Va-zimba.

Extractions: East Central Africa Links to legal datasheets for countries in this region. Kenya I Tanzania East and Central Africa The Region and Its History Islam was an integral part of the East African coastal culture by as early as 1000 CE. Islam arrived on the coast through contact with religious teachers, merchants and slave traders (Martin 1986; Oded 2000). Along the eastern coast and the islands of Kenya and Tanzania, Islam became an important force by the 17th century and remains the dominant religion today. The arrival of the Islamic religion and the concurrent Indian Ocean trade network helped to develop the coastal region into the distinct cultural and political entity known as the Swahili coast. In the 17th century, this 2000-mile long coast came under the domination of the Sultan of Oman, who moved his capital to the island of Zanzibar in the 19th century.

Identification with music operates on many psychological and cultural levels from childhood to old age, and is reinforced and expressed most cogently in their use of song during cotton farming. Cotton farming is a relatively recent chapter in Sukuma history, a result of (and creative response to) British colonial government requirements between the two world wars. A new farming class emerged, which drew on prior musical labor fraternities such as medicinal societies, hunting societies, porters, and military organizations for their personnel, musical repertory, and dance paraphernalia. The Sukuma made the imposition of long-distance migrant labor and cotton cropping their own by making these labors musical. The author discusses how Sukuma farmers developed musical farming from these prior musical labor practices, and provides several examples of this transformation.

Most are farmers and grow cash crops that include mangoes, oranges and coconuts. They live in rectangular mud huts with thatched roofs. Polygamy is common, as well as divorce. Ninety-eight percent of the 600,000 Zaramo people adhere to Islam but have mingled the teachings of the Koran with traditional animistic beliefs based on superstition and ancestor worship. The New Testament has been translated into the Zaramo language. 1. Pray the Holy Spirit will move in the hearts of the Zaramo people. 2.

Indigenous Crop Protection Practices In Africa indigenous Crop Protection Practices in SubSaharan East africa Mtanthanyerere (Malawi), Mkundekunde (zaramo), Mutaa blessing people tree /makuri, Bwar (Luo), http://www.ippc.orst.edu/ipmafrica/elements/ncpp.html
Extractions: Indigenous Crop Protection Practices in Sub-Saharan East Africa Database of Natural Crop Protectant Chemicals (DNCPC) Products Used, or With Potential Use, for Crop Pest Control in Sub-Saharan East Africa et. al. , 1992). To be classified as beneficials, these products should come from plants that grow well on poor quality land, i.e. do not compete with crop land, they should not act as weeds, they should not support crop pests, and the products should be easily prepared. Some degree of success in the commercial production of these materials has been attained, e.g. rotenone, pyrethrum, nicotine, and neem. Usually, however, these are quite expensive when purchased on the open market. Cheaper when on-farm produced. Commercial plantations are not without pest problems. Tephrosia, for example, suffers from insects, nematodes, damping off, and problems with seed production. Even pyrethrum plants suffer from nematode problems in the foliage. Recently, neem has been hit with severe root rot problems. Further, identification of the active compound(s) in these plants is illusive and very expensive to pursue.

Extractions: Fadhili Mshana Staffs come in different materials and forms and most examples in Africa are made of wood and are most commonly used for walking, though some staffs serve as ritual items and as symbols of authority. For example, chiefs, diviners, and linguists own staffs connected with their obligations. This is not to say that such types of staffs are used on a daily basis. Rather, these items are employed during special events and for performing specific tasks. These include chiefs who display them to legitimize their title, and to represent their realm and power. Healers and diviners also utilize staffs in their activities, as do linguists, orators, and leaders of associations (fig.1). To cite an example, in Ghana, major Ashanti chiefs have an okyeame or public spokesman who holds his staff as he speaks to underscore his authority and message. While the woodcarver was the main creator of staffs, the chief or title-holder could ask other artisans like a smith to work with the carver. Indeed, a combined effort perhaps depended on the materials that a staff demanded. If, for instance, metal such as iron and copper was needed, then specialists in this field of metallurgy were called upon to contribute their expertise. In another example, a bead-worker may be involved together with a woodcarver in the creation process if a staff was to be decorated with beads. Considering the crucial functions of staffs, it would seem that after the creation process is completed, other actions may be taken upon the objects. For example, a practitioner would be given the task of manipulating a staff with view to consecrate it, thereafter the object is given to the title person.
