Balumakazi: Native

Baluma, people of Lumani, are a people with steadfast spirituality, fervid traditional

and cultural values, and beholden to an abounding history. They survive the threat

of the slave takers, but by the end of the nineteenth century, their society is thrown

into turmoil with the cobra invasion.

 The twentieth century ushers in with the trumpet of an elephant new challenges for

the people but the 1950s are decisive years in Lumani that  pave a path for the

twenty-first century giving the Baluma yet another chance to determine their own

destiny. Will they make the same mistakes? Or will they learn from history?
