Beauty of Rwanda: Empowering Women Through Fair Trade

one paragraph summary of rwanda

Modern human settlement of what is now Rwanda dates from, at the latest, the last glacial period, either in the Neolithic period around 8000 BC, or in the long humid period which followed, up to around 3000 BC.

[6]

Archaeological excavations have revealed evidence of sparse settlement by hunter gatherers in the late stone age, followed by a larger population of early Iron Age settlers, who produced dimpled pottery and iron tools.

[7]

[8]

These early inhabitants were the ancestors of the Twa, aboriginal pygmy hunter-gatherers who remain in Rwanda today.

[9]

Between 700 BC and 1500 AD, a number of Bantu groups migrated into Rwanda, clearing forest land for agriculture.

[9]

[10]

The forest-dwelling Twa lost much of their habitat and moved to the mountain slopes.

[11]

Historians have several theories regarding the nature of the Bantu migrations; one theory is that the first settlers were Hutu, while the Tutsi migrated later to form a distinct racial group, possibly of Cushitic origin.

[12]

An alternative theory is that the migration was slow and steady, with incoming groups integrating into rather than conquering the existing society.

[9]

[13]

Under this theory, the Hutu and Tutsi distinction arose later and was a class distinction rather than a racial one.

about pros and cons of rwanda

Since the beginning of civilization, humankind has engaged in various conflicts all over the world. History offers many examples of internal conflict in countries as well as wars between them. Sometimes a conflict has occurred between practicing and non-practicing believers of a particular religion, while at other times differences between two religious or ethnic groups have been the reason for a conflict; a nation can be polarized because of two political parties. Populations have been divided into opposing camps and some of these conflicts have seemed like endless struggles with no solution in sight, while others are followed by a peaceful period with only memories of the painful conflict.
