    Zimbabwe Culture
    Zimbabwe's Culture is Both Rich and Diverse The vast majority of Zimbabwe's people stem from the great family of Bantu speaking migrants who first ventured east and south across Africa some 2000 years ago. Iron makers and agriculturists they settled on the highveld, middleveld and around the eastern highlands of Zimbabwe. Then they began the long process of establishing the distinctive Shona culture that is so much part of Zimbabwe today. Their Bantu kin - the Zulu warriors of King Mzilikazi - did not arrive until the first half of the nineteenth century. They now form the Ndebele or Matebele, Zimbabwe's second largest community. Despite their late arrival there are many cultural similarities between the two Bantu speaking communities, which together form an overwhelming majority. Other minority ethnic groups include white Zimbabweans, mainly of British origin, and various Asian ethnic groups, mostly Indian and Chinese. Around the 10th century, trade developed between the Mashona (Shona) and the Phoenicians. Through the period from the 11th century to the 15th century, descendants of the Shona speaking people are believed to have built the ruins of Great Zimbabwe.

Here is my take! - like superstitions and rituals and the fear of the unknown including giving tides to the dead. Zimbabwean culture is known for its encouragement for individuals to keep quiet and not speak much,giving those in authority the benefit of doubt! Elders are treated with respect while children are expected to do as told. Men are somewhat valued before women. Verbal greetings usually accompany handshakes while sometimes regular shakes are offered during conversations.

    GREAT ZIMBABWE: A History Almost Forgotten
    Prof. Manu Ampim MEANING: The name Zimbabwe is variously translated from the Shona language to mean sacred house, venerated houses, houses of stone, ritual seat of the king, court, or home or grave of the chief. Imba Huru (Great Enclosure wall) POLITICAL BACKGROUND The civilization of Great Zimbabwe was one of the most significant civilizations in the world during the Medieval period. European travelers from Germany, Portugal, and Britain were astonished to learn of this powerful African civilization in the interior of southern Africa. The first European to visit Great Zimbabwe was a German geologist, Carl Mauch, in 1871. Like others before him, Mauch refused to believe that indigenous Africans could have built such an extensive network of monuments made of granite stone. Thus, Mauch assumed that the Great Zimbabwe monuments were created by biblical characters from the north: I do not think that I am far wrong if I suppose that the ruin on the hill is a copy of Solomons Temple on Mount Moriah and the building in the plain a copy of the palace where the Queen of Sheba lived during her visit to Solomon. Mauch further stated that a civilized [read: white] nation must once have lived there.

    Zimbabwe : Culture
    The year-round temperate climate of the Highveld has combined with the natural inclinations of the white population to produce an outdoor society. Tenniswhether on farms or at urban clubsand bowling have many more followers than any ballet group. Happily for the cause of reconciliation, the first sport heroes after freedom were the members of the all-white team that was awarded the first gold medal for women's field hockey in Olympic history at Moscow in 1980. The most famous of Rhodesian-bred writers, Doris Lessing, settled in England in 1949. In some contrast, the nationalist fight prompted a renaissance of Shona culture. A forerunner of this renaissance (and a victim of the liberation fight) was Herbert Chitepo, both as abstract painter and epic poet. Stanlake Samkange's novels reconstruct the Shona and Ndebele world of the 1890s, while those of the much younger Charles Mungoshi explore the clash of Shona and Western cultures in both the Shona and English languages. Folk traditions have survived in dance and pottery. The revival of sculpture has drawn on tribal religion and totems to produce some remarkable works, particularly those of Takawira and the Tengenenge school of craftsmen who sculpt in hard serpentine.
