History <ul><li>Zulu are an ethnic tribe based in South Africa. They are well known for their brightly coloured beads and baskets. The Zulu believe they are the descendants of a chief from the Congo area. The Zulu people’s land was put under British rule in 1879. In 1906 the tribe won back their land in another war. The Zulu believe in the creator God Nkulunkulu but this God does not interact with humans or pose any interest in life on Earth. They believe all misfortune is the result of evil sorcery or offended spirits. They don’t believe that things happen for natural causes. The Zulu are practically divided in half with about 50% living in cities and 50% working on farms. </li></ul>
Houses As you can see, the Zulu houses are very plain and simple. They are made out of straw and dung. But they can be quite big and cool in the summers but cold in the winters. Zulu warriors position their houses in the best way suited to them. Farmers would build their houses near their farms but workmen would build near their workplace. On this picture, we have a collection of houses on a hillside. They are in a cluster so it would be easy to get from shelter to shelter. This would be good if you wanted to live near family.
