Abstract:The nationalist reactions among the Bakongo to the Belgian presence, which can be traced back the early twenties, expressed themselves in highly diversified forms and with varying degrees o intensity.

These tendencies account for the presence of modernist and traditional strands discernable in present-day attitudes towards authority.
