Zambia, A beautiful nation with many cultures.

Zambia, A beautiful nation with many cultures.

Do you know that the Zambian culture has a diversity of cultures? Well, Zambian culture has 73 ethnic groups. The culture includes a huge variety of activities such as harvest ceremonies, initiation ceremonies and marriage ceremonies. Many tribes in Zambia migrated centuries ago in search of pastures and farming and they have now grown in large numbers.

Before colonial period, Zambia was the home of Free states which had economic links with the outside world. At that time, the main exports were slaves, copper and ivory in exchange of salt, textiles, hardware and jewelry. During the process of urbanization and industrialization, ethnically different people were brought together by different economic interests. A large number of people living in rural areas still retain their traditional and indigenous values and customs. In the year 1964 after independence, the government explored the question of national identity.

Tribal customs are mostly practiced in rural areas. For instance, Greetings are always exchanged before having a conversation. Gifts are usually offered to visitors as a sign of friendship, gratitude and honor. A number of institutions were created with an aim of protecting Zambia culture such as the (NHCC) National Heritage Conservation Commission.
