TThe Ndebele of South Africa constitutes one group of people whose identity has survived precarious conditions and existential crisis under the weight of changing power dynamics of internal and external factors from pre-colonial to present times. Culture constituted one of Ndebele identity’s defining elements as it emerged and was expressed as a continuous formulation, sifting through the grids of historical forces, both internal and external, across space and time.

Beadwork, wall paintings, architecture and distinctive ways of dressing are more tangible ways of Ndebele identity and culture through which they have maintained a consciousness of belonging in the midst of precarious existence that confronted them since the late 19th century.
