Africa is rich in culture and that is not up for debate. African culture is expressed in its arts and crafts, folklore and religion, clothing, cuisine, music and languages. Our kinships, enstoolments, funerals, outdooring and the regalia of our leaders show how rich we are in terms of minerals.
Gold Coast, now Ghana used to be flooded with gold all over. The ornaments we designed were heavily done with gold. Our necklaces, rings, anklets, and bracelets were all done with 24 carat gold standards.
Because Africa was the birthplace of the human species, between eight million and five million years ago. Today, its culture reflects the diverse populations that inhabit the continent. African people have a rich tradition of arts and crafts, including sculptures, paintings, pottery, ceremonial and religious headgear.
The culture of Africa is incredibly interesting due to the fact it is varied, depending on which country you visit. The continent is home to diverse populations, many of which have been influenced by external factors. Each country has its own tribes, languages and cultural differences.
Even small African countries like Uganda have more than thirty established tribes. We will now take a look at some of the most well-established products of African culture including tribes, food, arts and language.
