Natural Protectors: Kenyan Women Step Up to Save a Forest Only a few years ago, Samburu women in northern Kenya were cutting down firewood in Kirisia forest and burning it to make charcoal. Now, those same women are directly involved in managing the forest, using it sustainably and reporting any illegal activity to authorities.

ABOUT US

Maasai Children Education Centre (MCEC) is non-profit organization registered in Tanzania working to eradicate poverty in the Maasai community, through education, health and local clean water. Many Maasai communities are battling water scarcity, struggling to gain access to any water source at all. The limited access to this vital human right is inflicting great damage on the Maasai’s other human rights to health, education and economic development. MCEC also works for the protection of women and children’s rights in the areas of education, Female Ge***al Mutilation (FGM), forced child marriage, sexual and gender-based violence and human rights.

[05/06/19]   Tribes of Tanzania

You are walking through a Tanzanian marketplace bustling with colors and sounds. The sweet smell of cloves hits your nostrils just as several Maasai craftswomen wave you over to look at their intricate beading, art, and textiles. Never have you seen such beauty.

You are awake before sunrise and arrive to a boulder outcropping near Lake Eyasi. Three Hadza Bushmen greet your arrival, all wearing baboon skins and gripping bows and arrows. You are to join them for their morning hunt. Never have you been so excited.

You are hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro, part of a weeklong trek along the Machame Route to Africa’s tallest peak. You strike up conversation with a porter: he’s a young Chagga man who carries a large bag on his shoulders and smiles. Never have you been so humbled.

Some say a journey to Tanzania is like going to the beginning, like traveling to ground zero. But what you’ll find here aren’t tribes stuck in the past. No, you’ll discover more than 120 different tribal groups living very much in the present, a human tapestry weaving traditional with modern, rural with urban. Nowhere else in Africa can you find this level of tribal diversity. In fact, Tanzania is the only African nation whose tribes represent all four of the continent’s major ethnolinguistic groups—Bantu, Cush*tic, Nilotic, and Khoisan. How cool is that?

Top 5 Tribes of Tanzania
Learning about all 120+ tribes would take a lifetime, so let’s cut to the chase. Here are five important and influential tribes you should know about, ones that you’ll most likely come into contact with during any adventure to Tanzania:

1 . Sukuma
Estimated Population: 5.5 million
Location: North. Near Mwanza and Southern Lake Victoria
Language: Sukuma (Bantu – 95% are Tanzanians are of Bantu origin)
“The wind does not break a tree that bends,” is a famous proverb of the Sukuma, Tanzania’s largest tribe. They are mainly rural-living and many today practice Christianity. Polygyny is standard practice with the Sukuma, too, yet they are predominately a matriarchal society. Like many tribes in East Africa, dance and singing are hallmark activities. The Sukuma economy is mixed—growing crops and raising livestock. The Nyamwezi tribe is another large tribe in the region, culturally and geographically similar to the Sukuma.

2. Chagga
Estimated Population: 2 million
Location: Southern and eastern slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Language: Kichaga (Bantu)
“He who leaves a child lives eternally,” is a Chagga proverb hinting at the tribe’s emphasis on living through descendants. As Tanzania’s third largest tribal group, most Chagga members are farmers (millet, bananas, coffee, etc.) and many also now practice Christianity and Islam. Chagga are known for their strong work ethic, so if you decide to climb Kilimanjaro, chances are you will encounter members of the Chagga on your approach or as porters and guides.

3. Maasai
Estimated Population: 800,000 (1+ million in Kenya/Tanzania)
Location: North-Central Tanzania and Southern Kenya (You will likely interact with Maasai around the major national parks, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, etc.)
Language: Maa (Nilotic); most speak Swahili or some English”If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together,” is a Maasai proverb. The Maasai might be the most famous tribe in Tanzania, known for their colorful attire and spirit. They are mainly pastoralist herders, cattle being a primary economic driver of exchange. The Maasai are patriarchal and monotheistic, and their traditional diet derives almost exclusively from cattle—meat, milk, and blood. They live in kraals, enclosed villages, and many are intricate beadworkers. Song and dance is, you guessed it, central to celebration and ceremony.

4. Hadzabe (Hadza)
Estimated Population: 1,200-1,300
Location: Simple dwellings and caves around Lake Eyasi.
Language: Their unique language, popular for its use of clicking sounds, is unrelated to any regional language.
The Hadzabe are a small hunter-gatherer tribe, one the world’s last remaining of its kind. Without livestock or agriculture, most mornings start with hunting and foraging, adhering to a simple diet that many believe holds the key to health. (Source). Gender roles are distributed where men typically hunt on their own to bring home meat and honey, while women and children gather fruits, berries, and roots.

5. Iraqw
Estimated Population: 350,000.
Location: North-Central. Arusha Province and Lake Manyara regions.
Language: Iraqw (Cush*tic)
Most of the Iraqw population is concentrated on the Mbulu Plateau, between Lake Manyara and Lake Eyasi. Many Easy Travel adventures travel through Iraqw territory. It is said that the Iraqw were the first tribe to settle the Ngorongoro Crater. (Source) The Iraqw tribe is known for their sharply defined features, blacksmithing (men) and pottery (women), and they often grow their own food and tend to cattle. (Source)

The Bottom Line:
Any adventure to Tanzania can include world-class safaris, hiking, and beachcombing, but it also offers some of the most unique opportunities on the planet to learn about our shared human story, past and present. The diverse intersection of tribes, of languages, folktales, and music converges in Tanzania and invites you into its swirl of celebration. Are you in?
