Abstract:Using information collected from the Tanzanian Kerebe, the author discusses the potential of a seldom used dimension of oral evidence, that pertaining to material culture or cultural institutions within a context of ethnic and lineage diversity. Specific cultural features which the author looks at are male circumcision, the introduction of banana cultivation, the musical tradition which revolves around the trough zither, Kerebe dance societies, black-smithing, and fishing.
