It is surprising that the Naga tribe did not have any broad identity as a culture, tribe or group they were the “lost tribe.” Many anthropologists believe that they were migrants from south- ern china or magnolia having no collective name for themselves. Even when the British ar- rived in the early 1800s, British colonialist and American Baptist first made contact with the Naga, even then they didn't have any tribal identity. The tribe now recognized as Naga tribe has just coalesced in these past two centuries. Developing their hamlets on hilltops for defen- sive purpose, Naga clans like to live in isolation, encouraging their local languages and cus- toms and fierce resistance to outsiders. Although they live in isolation but they exemplify the experience of 10 millions of people living in high lands of Asia named Wa, Hmong, Kachin, and Karen.
They speak five different languages, Chiyao, Chitumbuka, Kiswahili, English and Portuguese. The Ngoni people consider themselves closely related with the Nguni and Zulu people. They are currently living in many South African countries, one of them being Mozambique. They speak four different languages and they are Tumbuka, Ngoni, Chewa and Zulu. The last ethnic group that is well known by many is the Swahili people.
They consider themselves members of local tribes rather than members of a country. Subcultures are much more pronounced than nationalities. One of the largest ethnic groups is the Pashtuns. Pashtuns are a sub culture people who are divided into several tribes and sub clans or tribal confederations. The Durrani are the most dominant confederation of the Pashtuns in Afghanistan and are where a majority of the Taliban are from.
HISTORY OF GONJA INTRODUCTION To the south-west of Mamprugu, Dagbon and Nanum emerged the kingdom of Gonja. Gonja also known as Ghanjawiyyu is a kingdom in Northern Ghana. The people of Gonja speaks The Gonja Language, which is a North Guan language spoken about a 3rd of the populace that resides in the Northern part of Ghana. It is known that Gonja are Guan people who have been influenced by Akan, Mande and Hausa people.

Pai is not to question her grandfathers authority or the tribes cultural beliefs and traditions. “Children are expected to strive for family goals and not engage in behaviors that might bring dishonor to the family” (Sue & Sue, 2016, p. 514). According to Pai’s grandfather, as a woman, she cannot be chief of the tribe even though she has a genuine love for her tribe and a deep desire to lead them. My reaction to the collectivism of the family was hard to watch. It is difficult or see Pai’s desires and Kono’s view of gender roles tear the family apart.
The members of the clan go through an agonizing process that tortures the client’s mouth to rid all evil from entering. Oddly enough this practice is not effective but the people of the Nacirema continue to keep their customs and traditions alive. The ethics and morality of the tribe might be questioned by the norms of society. Most can disagree that the trials are abhorrent and can lead to serious health problems. As the anthropologist continues his research he learns about more of the passage of rites these members practice.
The Maasai and Kikuyu are two, very different tribes from the East African countries, Tanzania and Kenya. Before reading this essay, some would probably think that they are very different, but if you are one of those people, I hope that after reading my essay, you will change your mind. What are the reasons for the differences between traditional Maasai and Kikuyu cultures?

The only person who really wants to embrace the black culture that Asagai professes is Beneatha and even she has misconceptions of what Nigerian culture truly is. This shows that the culture of the blacks’ ancestry has been forgotten and has not been taught. Overall Asagai is displeased with the assimilation in America at this time. He wishes that the black community of America embraced their heritage rather than discard
