The Shona People

Mhoroyi!

Pounding maize to make a staple dish called Sadza

Pronounced “Mo-Ro-Yee”, that means “hello” in Shona, the language spoken by the Shona people, with whom I will be living and working during my internship.  The Shona are known best for their stone carvings and buildings, such as The Great Zimbabwe, ruins of an ancient palace.  Find more information about the Shona and their accomplishments at the links below!

Love, Lee

    We got to go to the Great Zimbabwe ruins in 2009, they’re amazing! I hope you get the chance to visit them while you’re in Africa. See you soon!
