HAMITIC MYTH PDF

Researchers say that the racial-based hypothesis was brought to Rwanda by Belgian missionaries who described Tutsis as a foreign race which came from somewhere beyond Rwanda; probably descendents of Europeans. Based on the belief in that myth that every civilisation has to come from Europe, European colonialists somehow attributed the governing Tutsi aristocracy under the King of Rwanda to the European civilisation because their belief in racism did not allow them to see Rwandans as a people capable of organised living. That myth together with a series of discriminatory policies under the colonial Belgian rule in Rwanda and the post-colonial regimes led to the Genocide against Tutsis. Giving an example, she said the government-sponsored One Cow per Poor Family can help demystify the myth that only Tutsis own cows. Raising cows is one of the major characteristics which colonialists based on in the s while distributing identity cards to Rwandans with the mention of whether one was Hutu, Tutsi, or Twa.

And will deconstructing the myth require that someone does research to identify where Rwandans came from? Dr Raphael Nkaka, a historian and lecturer at the University of Rwanda, said it would be useless. The conversation was moderated by Dr.

Hamitic myth that led to Genocide in Rwanda

The term Hamitic originally referred to the peoples said to be descended from Ham , one of the Sons of Noah according to the Bible. According to Edith Sanders , the sixth-century Babylonian Talmud says that "the descendants of Ham are cursed by being Black and [it] depicts Ham as a sinful man and his progeny as degenerates. They rejected the curse as a justification for slavery. The essays below focus on the development of these ideas regarding the peoples of North Africa, the Horn of Africa, and the African Great Lakes. However, Hamitic hypotheses operated in West Africa as well, and they changed greatly over time. In his Crania Aegyptiaca , Morton analyzed over a hundred intact crania gathered from the Nile Valley, and concluded that the ancient Egyptians were racially akin to Europeans.
