Transcript of Our Tribe- The Swahili People

The homes that the people live in are not the largest. Their homes are very small, usually made out out of the resources that the Swahili tribe have. Some of them are very large and some are very small. Most of the homes are smaller and wood or log made.
Ways the land affects the People.
One ways that the land affects peoples health is the smoking of marijuana. Many male citizens tend to smoke this plant that grows naturally. Another thing that they have that is unhealthy is miraa, a plant that people chew. It is similar to tobacco. Another natural hazard that effects health are diseases. Some diseases in that area include typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera, AIDS, Hookworm,etc.
Amimals on the Swahili Coast
Overall, the Swahili Coast does not produce sufficient vegetation to sustain diverse animal life. Within the region's forested areas, however, there are as many as 50 species of mammal and 200 species of bird. Indigenous species are limited. Bushpig, small antelope, bush-babies, monkeys and the occasional elephant make up most of the coastal mammals. Still present, but much depleted, are perambulators such as leopards and lions.

Our Tribe- The Swahili People

History- Today's Swahili are a mix of Early African and Arab decent. They first came to be when Arab dhows and Indian ships landed on the shores of Early Tanzania, Kenya, and Southern Somalia. The Swahili Language is Bantu- related and has a trace of Arab words. They practice Islam, however, they enjoy Food and Music in traditional African Style.
