Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Our entry is titled Xhosa Traditions and Cultures. Many people living outside of South Africa are unaware of the different cultures which make up South Africa's society. The educational objective of this project is to provide people with information on different aspects of Xhosa culture. These include : marriage, traditions and the role of amaquiga( shaman). Many are these traditions are still in practice- both in the rural areas of South Africa and in urban areas. Another issue raised is the relevance of these pratices among the Xhosa community which is moving to cities and becoming Westenised.
