This is a straight-forward account of the present-day life and customs of the Bhaca of East Griqualand who number approximstely 55,000 and occupy 684 sqare miles of the district of Mount Frere in the Transkei.The tribe was driven into this area from Natal in the Tshakan wars of the nineteenth century.One of the main reasons for undertaking this field survey was that the Bhaca provide a bridge,both culturally and historically,between North and South (Cape) Nguni.
