ABSTRACT

The Majimaji War (1904–1908) was the most significant uprising mounted by Tanzanians against the German colonial rule. It was also one of the most catastrophic events in the colonial history of Africa. Between 100,000 and 300,000 people of southern Tanzania died from the war and its aftermath. Despite this acknowledged death toll, only two known Majimaji mass graves exist. Seven bodies were found in one grave and about a hundred in the other. There are three other individual graves reportedly associated with the war, but their connection to the war is not yet proven. The debates, rumors, and speculations surrounding the known and unknown graves, and the practices associated with the memorialization of the fallen heroes are the focus of this paper. At the community level, discussions about the Majimaji War graves emphasize the significance of mass burials as ritual sites and memorialized landscape. At the national level, the commemoration of the Majimaji War tends to focus on the installation of memorials as instruments for political identity formation. More... »

32 schema:description The Majimaji War (1904–1908) was the most significant uprising mounted by Tanzanians against the German colonial rule. It was also one of the most catastrophic events in the colonial history of Africa. Between 100,000 and 300,000 people of southern Tanzania died from the war and its aftermath. Despite this acknowledged death toll, only two known Majimaji mass graves exist. Seven bodies were found in one grave and about a hundred in the other. There are three other individual graves reportedly associated with the war, but their connection to the war is not yet proven. The debates, rumors, and speculations surrounding the known and unknown graves, and the practices associated with the memorialization of the fallen heroes are the focus of this paper. At the community level, discussions about the Majimaji War graves emphasize the significance of mass burials as ritual sites and memorialized landscape. At the national level, the commemoration of the Majimaji War tends to focus on the installation of memorials as instruments for political identity formation.
