People of Namibia, kavangos.

The Kavango Region stretching from Owamboland to the west as far as the Caprivi Strip in the east and bordered to the north by the Kavango River is home to five distinct tribal groups totalling around 140,000 people. Traditionally the five Okavango tribes - the Geiriku, Shambiu, Mbunzu, Kwangai and Mbukushu- followed a matrilineal system of leadership and inheritance, however, the growth of livestock farming by men has increased their economic and social status and stimulated a system of patrilineal ties of inheritance.
