Ulwazi Fieldworkers: March

Each month we do a wrap up of what our Ulwazi fieldworkers have been researching, and this month it’s clear that Siboniso’s work had a definite theme, with the majority of his stories focusing on Zulu traditions surrounding death. Click on the links below to read about the isihlangu ceremony that’s performed after the death of a male family member, and the isidwaba ceremony that’s carried out when a married woman has passed away.

Nkosikhona’s stories for March are somewhat more varied – and lighthearted, looking at how Zulu learners from  Magabheni Primary School are putting their dancing skills to the test with some Latin dance moves, as well as how some young Indian children are showing off their skills with traditional Indian dancing.
