Nyakyusa and NgondeAfricaintensive agriculturalists
The Nyakyusa and Ngonde are ethnically and culturally related people living in southwestern Tanzania and northern Malawi. They speak closely related Bantu languages, with minor dialectal differences in some regions. They are primarily rural people, earning their living from a combination of grain cultivation, banana/plantain gardens, cattle herding and seasonal migration to towns. Traditional Nyakyusa society was especially noted for its nucleated "age villages", a residential segregation of generations in adjoining communities.
