Abstract:

The Tsonga collection covers cultural, economic and historical information circa 1895 to 1990. The basic sources to consult are two books by the Swiss Missionary anthropologist Henri Junod who lived among the Tsonga in 1895-1909. Together, these books provide a comprehensive account of Tsonga culture and society as observed by the author and his key informants. Major themes covered include agricultural and industrial activities, literary and artistic life (with particular emphasis on language, folklore and music, and texts of songs, proverbs, riddles and folktales), and religious beliefs including concepts of nature and man, medicine and ancestor worship, magical practices, spirit possession, witchcraft and divination, and morality and taboos. The remaining documents examine specific issues relating to change and continuity including the local consequences of labor migration, dynamics of kinship, history of ethnicity and gender relations and rites of passage.
