Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this paper, Golan looks at the ways in which Inkatha ( the Zulu National Cultural Liberation Movement), has, since its formation, used the Zulu past to draw support, to achieve political gains, and to educate the youth in KwaZulu. To illustrate the manner in which these processes have been achieved, the author draws on the political speeches of Chief Gatsha Buthelezi, Inkatha's leader, as well as speeches by other key individuals in the movement, texts by the historians of the movement, novels written in the spirit of Inkatha, and most important, Inkatha textbooks on 'good citizenship,' a subject introduced in all KwaZulu schools as a compulsory topic in 1978 (p. 113).
