Culture

CultureWe as an Africans we believe in ancestors but not all of us. To believe in ancestors is to believe in a person or people that have been died long time ago. Some people change their believe for the sake of Christianity people live their culture because of the belief they do, some are believe Jesus and some believe in the ancestors. Long time ago all the blacks wear believe in the ancestor and now that they is this belief that wear started by the white people that believe cold Christianity . As a black person you must believe in your culture, believe in the ancestors, believe in the people that has been died long time ago. Blacks must bring back their spirits.
Game of our Culture
In our culture, we as black people or the Zulu peoples they is a game colds Ukungcweka (That is the game that played by the young boys. That game is played with the sticks where by a person heart one another). That game was used to played by the boys of different kingdom that game was played to prove that who is the best boys between those particular kingdoms or did they know how to defend them self and to prove their bravery and courage. In this days this game called Ukugcweka or Induku is used to played in the biggest ceremonies like traditional wending, Umcelo (where by the parents thanking his or her daughter that she is taking care of herself). This game is played just for fun, not just that people has been fighting for their life.
Entertainment
WE as a Zulu people we do lots of things that can make us happy or entertained us. WE do lots of music like Iscathamiya (whereby we use our voice to sing but not use any Instruments). They is also called Maskandi and in that part of music we use gutters , and in the past we wear singing music called Imvumo where we wear use our voice to sing and our hands to clap and the fleet so that the leader can get more efforts and spirits.
We even do dance that is Indlamu the Zulu dance that particular dance we use to do it if they is any Zulu ceremonies. That dance is a part of an entertainment because is not just you will get money or anything. But these days some people put their money if they is any dancers who are performing on stage or in that particular performance.
