Abstract: This document contains an analysis of the function and structure of slavery within Ila culture and society. Slavery in the world-wide literature is broadly characterized as a superordinate-subordinate role relationship between owner and slave, based on capture or purchase, entailing some degree of sexual, political, or economic exploitation. Among the Ila, however, slaves occupied a transient status and were gradually incorporated into the society.
