Somalia Culture
Somalia culture is a part of Islamic culture. As the Muslims ruled Somalia for a good long period, the culture of Somalia has a strong influence of that of the Muslims. In fact Somalia Religion is also Muslim.
As the Islamic religion prohibited in take of pork and alcohol, so these two things were not included in the Somalia food. As far as the dress of Somalian was concerned, the women were all covered except their hands and face. The dress of the women is known as Hijab. According to the culture in Somalia men wore dress, which covered their body from the waist to the knee. This pattern of dressing is followed since the children reach the age of seven to nine.
To know Somalia culture well, it is necessary to understand the culture of the Muslims. Somalians follow an egalitarian political culture. The education of the Somalia children begin with reading the Quran. There are several different clans among the Somalians and marriages between people from different clans is quite common.
Somalia Culture practices the rules and regulations set by the Quran. However there is a slight touch of the Americans as well. The political view is quite American. In Somalia the average children count per family is about seven to eight. Great respect is given to a woman by different kinds of celebrations, when she is pregnant. The culture of living in extended families is quite common in Somalia.

CULTURE Greetings Somali warmly greet each other with handshakes, but shaking hands with the opposite sex is avoided. Common verbal greetings include:
  • Assalam Alaikum (Peace be upon you) Nabad miyaa (is their peace). Subah wanaagsan (Good morning) Galab wanaagsan (Good afternoon) Habeeb wanaagsan (Good night)
Gestures Somali use sweeping hand and arm gestures to dramatize speech. Many ideas are expressed through specific hand gestures:
  • A swift twist of the open hand means "nothing" or "no". Snapping fingers may mean "long ago" or and "so on" A thumb under the chin indicates "fullness". It is impolite to point the sole of one's foot or shoe at another person. It is impolite to use the index finger to call somebody; that gesture is used for calling dogs. The American "thumbs up" is considered obscene.

Somali Language is born in Arab. It is a part of the Afro-Asian language family. With 10 to 15 million of people who speak in this language, there are about half a million of people, who take it up as the second language in their education. Somali speakers are also present in North America, Yemen and Europe.
In the language of Somalia , there are about four scripts, which are known as Wadaad's writing, an Arabic based Abjad script, the Osmanya writing, the Borama script and the Latin based writing. However before the independence of Somalia, only a few authors indulged in writing in the Somali Language. Still the tradition in the Somalia Culture follows this language as the most important one. The Europeans like Germans, Italians, British, French and others gave a lot to the Language in Somalia
After the independence, Somali language wet through quite a few changes in the scrip as well as development. There were literacy campaigns held in order to promote the language. Finally it was approved as the official language as well as the medium of instruction in primary and secondary school. It was also included in the university curriculum.

          Somalia: culture, chaos and clans
          Broadcast Date: Dec. 8, 1992 Its military name, Operation Deliverance, has almost lofty connotations. When the 900 Canadian soldiers land in Somalia on Dec. 15, 1992, they will try to draw order from the chaos. As shown in this CBC report, famine and civil war are ravaging this small African country.
          Soviet money, along with powerful weapons, flowed into the country to seal the partnership. But, in 1977 Somalia engaged in a border dispute with Ethiopia and the Soviet superpower dropped their alliance. The United States subsequently cemented a coalition with Somalia, sending over weapons and foreign aid. As the Cold War thawed, however, the partnership weakened and the United States withdrew. Clan warfare within the country intensified as powerful Cold War weaponry fell into rebel hands in a struggle for power. As infrastructure and order collapsed, famine spread through the country.

    - Henry Wheeler Shaw Do stereotypes usefully represent real knowledge or merely reflect counter-productive prejudice? Stereotypes invariably refer in a generalized manner to - often arbitrary - groups of people, usually minorities. Stereotypes need not necessarily be derogatory or cautionary, though most of them are. The "noble savage" and the "wild savage" are both stereotypes. Indians in movies, note Ralph and Natasha Friar in their work titled "The Only Good Indian - The Hollywood Gospel" (1972) are overwhelmingly drunken, treacherous, unreliable, and childlike. Still, some of them are as portrayed as unrealistically "good".
    But alcoholism among Native Americans - especially those crammed into reservations - is, indeed, more prevalent than among the general population. The stereotype conveys true and useful information about inebriation among Indians. Could its other descriptors be equally accurate?

Somalia : Culture
The Somalis are a culturally, linguistically, and religiously homogeneous people, who are separated along clan lines and sparsely scattered over a harsh, dry land. There are remarkable distinctions among sectors of the population, related in part to variations in means of livelihood. In the early 1990s, roughly 60 % of an around population of more than 8.4 million were still nomadic pastoralists or seminomadic herders, subject to the vicissitudes of an arid climate. Twenty to 25 % of the people were cultivators, most living in the southern half of the nation, on or between Somalia's two major rivers, the Jubba and the Shabeelle. The remainder were town dwellers, the large majority of whom resided in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu. The workings of the lineage system were predicated on the solidarity of the portions of the same order with one another and the relative equality of the members of each portion. The growth of the state and the development of different degrees of wealth and access to other private-sector resources caused an incipient stratification that had the potential to override lineage solidarity as it diminished equality.
