About the Makonde Tribe
The Makonde Tribe

The Makonde tribe originally migrated north from Mozambique to the southern part of Tanzania. Located on the Makonde Plateau, they have traditionally been somewhat isolated and thus remained largely unaffected by colonial and postcolonial development. The Makonde have a reputation for cultural conservatism and a desire to defend both their territory and their way of life. They represent a strong figurative art through their authentic carvings that represent life, love and working together. Their best carving work is made out of the Ebony tree. The Makonde people along with Kamba people of Kenya are the only two tribes in East Africa that have the carving skill. [learn more]
