The Zulu

The Zulu is a community mainly found in Natal province in South Africa. In their belief of creation, they believe the world was dark and formless before all. Then a big seed fell on the earth. The earth is represented as the host of all things. It facilitated the germination of the reeds that turned out to be the source of all things. The earth also acts as the development pint where everything else became what it is today. It is the one and only source of everything that is in existence today. (Distant Train, 2011)

After the seed grew into reeds, the reeds began to flower. The reeds were called “Uthlanga” which when translates means the source of all things. These flowers then grew to produce the most important being in this culture also referred to as the source of all other things. This being was called “Unkulunkulu”.
