Zulu meaning: Sky
amaZulu meaning: People of the sky
amaZulu are the largest group of people in South Africa. They are native to the province of Kwazulu-Natal, which is on the eastern side of South Africa along the Indian ocean.
They were a nation of warriors during the reign of King Shaka, who managed to combine several small groups into the most feared war machine at the time and pioneered new tactics and weaponry that made the nation invincible.
Colonialism has played a big part in Africans losing interest in tradition and culture. However, amaZulu still practice their culture today and are a strong and beautiful nation amongst many others in the world.
