creatividual I'm thankful that tour guide at the Ledisi Cultural Village was so knowledgable about all the tribes and had a good sense of humor too. One common thread with all the four tribes: "no cows, no wives". Fellas, if you didn't have at least 11 cows to give, you weren't getting married. Ladies, know you're worth. Lol. #southafrica #creatividualadventures #travelnoire #zulu #pedi #xhosa 22h

creatividual Zulu (tribe) huts at the Ledisi Cultural Village in South Africa. We learned that the entrances were made super low because they forced you to bow to the elders, as a sign of respect, inside. #southafrica #creatividualadventures #zulu #travelnoire 22h

creatividual Exploring my Rwandese heritage, I also started learning about names and their importance. About six weeks after a baby is born, a ceremony is held to name the baby. Everyone in the room gets a chance to suggest a name. Many have an English or French first name and a Kinyarwanda surname (example Claudette Mutoni or Jane Neza) or have two or three Kinyarwanda names. The parents often times have the name already picked out though and after everyone has shared their name idea, they share/reveal the baby's name. I've chosen a #Kinyarwanda name for myself. I chose Iragena Keza. Iragena means God's plan/provides. Keza means pretty, beautiful. God plans and provides a beautiful life for me and I'm so thankful. #rwanda #rwandese #gratitude #african #africa #africanpride #learningmyheritage 1w

creatividual Today, #July 4th is Rwanda's Liberation Day! 20 years ago the mass murders of 1994 occurred and wiped out a substantial amount of the country's population. This day marks the country being liberated from those mass murders and moving onward and upward. It's a bittersweet day but I think it can also recognize Rwanda's strength and will to move forward. #rwanda #rwandese #liberationday 3w

creatividual July 1st was Rwanda's Independence Day! Still learning about my heritage and loving every second of it. #Repost from @madeinafrica54 --- #HAPPYINDEPENDENCEDAY to #RWANDA!

The seal of #RWANDA is the national symbol and used by the government. It was restyled in 2001 to match the color scheme of the new national flag. The text reads "Republic of Rwanda - Unity, Work, Patriotism" in Kinyarwanda. #Africa #MadeInAfrica #MadeInAfricanyc #unity #work #patriotism
