The Changing Culture of Mozambique


Mozambican culture endured changes as a result of the evolution of its government. From the Stone Age to today, the inhabitants of South East Africa has undergone transitions as the people that live and govern the region change. Ancestors of the Khoisani people, San hunters and gathers were the original people of Mozambique. The San were nomadic tribes. Shortly after the first century C.E., these tribes intermarried with Bantu-speaking tribes from the north. The Bantus were farmers and iron workers. Traders from Saudi Arabia came to the area coast around the eighth century.

Mozambique did not exist as an united nation, but as many kingdoms within the region. Mozambique’s historical and friendly trade with the people of Saudi Arabia created a culture and language that came to be called Swahili. The name Mozambique is Swahili and is said to have come from an Arabian sheikh, Musa al Big.
