Biographical / Historical

Zulu tribes were a brand of the Nguni tribes of the Bantu people. Zulu warriors were fierce and conflicts or wars could start over most anything from cattle stealing, pasture usurpation, and they were famous for their fights against the colonists. Wars/Conflicts were short and violent as the warriors surrounded a village during the night and attacked at sunrise with loud yells to incite panic.
