Zulu, an emblematic people
According to oral tradition, Zulu - which means “Sky” - is the name of the ancestor who founded Zulu lineage circa 1670. Today, it is estimated that the Zulu population is of about 12 million, representing 22% of South Africa’s inhabitants. Conflicts within the tribe are settled via traditional stick fighting.
