Communal Rituals of the Nyakusa.


The Nyakyusa and the Ngonde tribes occupy an area shut in by mountains at the northern end of Lake Nyasa, in Tanzania, and enjoy a culture which, though varying locally, clearly springs from a common basis and is traditionally attributed to similar origins. The subject of this book is the traditional rituals celebrated on behalf of chiefdoms and groups of chiefdoms, and the changing ideas and values apparent, as a section of the Nyakyusa turn from paganism to Christianity.
