Quick Reference

(Zaramo/Tanzania)

Nyalutanga (Lutanga) was the first human being, and is related to the origin of all things.

The earth is the great womb that gave birth to the first human being, Nyalutanga. The progenitor, Nyalutanga, appeared to a mother whose first daughter disappeared, because no one knew how to instruct her as to how to grow up, to become mature: she turned into an elephant. It was because of her that Nyalutanga appeared. She told the mother that she would instruct her daughters, and so it became possible for the girls to grow into full human beings.
