Tribe Information

About the Lwalwa People

“Another tribe related to the Lualua is the Lwalwa who number 20,000 and live in the frontier with Angola. They are of the Kete origin and came I close contact with the Lunda people during the 17th century. Nevertheless, they remained independent, although they formed a relationship with the Salampasu and the Mbagani. Each Lwalwa village is headed by either a male or female chief, known as Dina Dia Bukalenga, whose power is held in check by a powerful society, the Bangongo. In common with their neighbours, Lwalwa men hunt and the women farm.”
