Bakalanga Tribe of Botswana
The Bakalanga is the second largest population group in the country and have also fallen victim to the artificial colonial boundaries. The boundary between Zimbabwe and Botswana split the Bakalanga into two groups, with most of the country's Bakalanga living in the Francistown region. Although they own cattle and goats, they are primarily agriculturalists to whom the tilling of the land plays an important role in their customs and religion.
Cattle ownership among Bakalanga does not afford the individual the same prestige as it does the Batswana; usually only the chief kept cattle for the common good of the tribe. As a result of historical turmoil, groups of Bakalanga are to be found as far afield as Maun, Palapye, Serowe, Mahalapye and Mochudi.
