The People of Heyza, Tansania
> zurück zur Übersicht
Heyza is an isolated village in the southern highlands of Tnzania, bordering on Malawi and Zambia to the south. Its people are the Nyha. This tribe has inhabited the region for centuries. The clay huts are widely scattered throughout the remote mountain region. The Nyha believe in the power of witchcraft as well as in the healing-power of their medicine-men. They carry their sick to the home of the healer. Very often it is too late, because the trip through the bush is too long. When somebody dies, all the members of the family shave off their hair - as a mark of respect for the person who has died.
