The Bantwane: Africa's Undiscovered People (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The little-known Bantwane people are found in a tiny area in the north-eastern part of South Africa. Peter Magubane has captured on film this small group going about their daily lives - working the land, going through their various rites of passage, bringing up their children. The woman wear their hair in the distinctive "bicycle seat" style, which is decorated with "squirrels' tails" (rosettes). Although certain Western elements have been incorporated into their ceremonies - for instance a bridegroom will wear a Western suit while the bride wears traditional attire - this isolated group are keeping their African customs alive.
