African Indaba

Winsor and Newton watercolour on Xpressit 200gsm paper - 8" x 12" - unframed

An indaba is an important conference held by the izinDuna (principal men) of the Zulu and Xhosa peoples of South Africa. In traditional African culture, people get together to sort out the problems that affect them all, where everyone has a voice and where there is an attempt to find a common mind or a common story that everyone is able to tell when they go away from it.

The term comes from a Zulu language word, meaning “business” or “matter”. The term has found widespread use throughout Southern Africa and often simply means gathering or meeting.
