Abstract:This paper examines the Bahaya traditional society, how it developed from the clan as the basic socio-economic organisation (representing the whole members of the clan) to the development of the state as the highest form of socio-economic organisation. With a Marxist approach the author draws on ethnological and archaeological sources of evidence. Other sources include ethnological, historical, sociological studies, mythology and legends, works of art, illustrations in relation to house (architectural design) construction. Sections: Theoretical frame on the evolution of man - Early social organisation - The Bahaya tribal society (Bukoba and Karagwa District of West Lake Region in Tanzania) - Historical explanations on early social setting; evidence through archaeology, history, ethnology, mythology and legends - Kinship - From clan to state - Conclusion.
