Banyoro FK11( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Banyoro live largely in western Uganda, east of Lake Mobutu. Bunyoro is one of Uganda's administrative regions. Runyoro, the language of the Banyoro, belongs to the Central Bantu division of the Bantu language family. The Banyoro had a powerful kingdom for many centuries; its influence waned in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries under pressure from other kingdoms. All Ugandan kingdoms were abolished after Ugandan independence from British rule, but were restored in 1993. The Banyoro are largely sedentary agriculturalists. There are sixteen documents in this collection with a time focus from 1450-1967. Fieldwork was done mostly between 1950 and 1965. The major works are Beattie's study of Bunyoro political institutions (The Bunyoro state) and Roscoe's study of the royal household and rituals. The Banyoro historian, John Nyakatura and Beattie (Bunyoro, an African kingdom) both wrote primers on the Bunyoro, which serve as excellent overviews. Other Banyoro scholars have written articles critical of British historical accounts of the 1907 Nyangire Revolt, the relationship among the peoples of Northern Uganda in the 19th century, Hamitic hypothesis, and the fall of the Bunyoro state
