Nqobile’s Stories: June

The idea of how Zulu culture is adapting to modern life is one that we’ve discussed a few times during our monthly Ulwazi meetings. In fact we’ve even thought of creating a whole new subsection on the Ulwazi wiki that deals with new Zulu traditions, things like the ‘after tears’ parties that have become a regular part of the urban Zulu funeral. Leading on from this idea, this month Nqobile chose to look at how the attire and customs of a Zulu bride have changed with the times, comparing, for example, what brides wear today to a traditional makoti.
