Arusha

 The Tanzanian Embassy* now presents an official

Presentation on the state of Tanzania

 

      As a nation of 40M people, Tanzania is in the bottom 10% of world economies, but getting better. As a 45 year old nation,

the nation is doing better than most other 45 year old African nation

would be. The government is satisfactory, but could be improved upon.

There are elections, as Tanzania is a democracy, but the elections are

irregular. It is a Swahili speaking country, but with English being used in higher education and in the government. The famous Mount Kilimanjaro towers the northeast part of the country. Also, the crater Ngorongo made from a volcano, is sunken deep into the ground.

          Healthcare is satisfactory for an African nation. The economy is

also satisfactory, however, 50+% of the economy is based on agriculture, causing worries. The climate ranges from the tallest mountain in Africa to an island off at sea. Its religion is mostly Christian. The major tribe would be the masai tribe.

                                                                                        

 

 

This video is of the Masai tribe, which is the main tribe in Africa. This particular dance is called the jumping dance, which is usually danced after someone has accomplished a great task or deed, such as killing a lion.

Three women relax in Tanzania. Successful women from ruling families that can enjoy the same privileges as men.

Katelyn's Tanzanian Mask 

 

Artist Statement

The Mask of Tanzania

 

By: Katelyn Powell

 

 

The flag, the freedom. The pain, the suffering.

The hope, the people, and the admirable colors of their flag that lay across the face of Tanzania, so that they may know who they are.

The brilliant blue, representing the fearless, adjoining sea. The green land of the jungles and trees, shrinking each day. Black; the wonderful, beautiful people. Gold, representing the mineral wealth.

The flag of Germany, perched on the head of Tanzania’s mask, so that they may remember who fought for them against Germany in those times. The rival, the enemy, who captured the poor country and scarred Tanzania’s grounds forever.

The country Tanzania standing so beautifully on the mask as the ruffled shape of the country outlines the solemn mask of Tanzania.

 

 

 

Of Desperate Hope and Courage

By: Katelyn P.

 

 

I am a country of desperate hope and courage

I smell the hard work and the games of tag drifting away in the invisible breeze as though it belongs

I hear the cries and laughs, the hurt and the happy, all laid out on a flat surface of difference

I am a country of desperate hope and courage

 

Sometimes I feel a deep emotion that plummets all the way down to the bottom of my heart, making me think of what it’s like if I were among those of starvation and death, wondering when I would reach a safe destination

I solemnly touch the ground, the same one which millions of bleeding, courageous feet have walked on, hoping…

My eyes drift to the top of the unbearable heights of Mount Kilimanjaro, to the grasp of the crater Ngorongo

I want to hike to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and look, look upon the souls of those who walk so far and moan with grief and pain that drills into their souls

I want to see the faces of those small poor children, running on the long, endless plains of starvation and sickness, and wonder why they must fight to survive

I worry for the hearts of those with malaria or AIDS, every heart slowly beating a unique different pace

I cry for the millions that walk, never ceasing, worrying that if they do, they might never move again

I solemnly touch the ground, the same one which millions of bleeding, courageous feet have walked on, hoping…

I am a country of desperate hope and courage

I understand the happiness of the children tossing their savage balls back and forth with their naked feet, laughing and being grateful and happy for the lovely things that they have

I say that freedom has won. The British couldn’t help but let us to be free when we were theirs

Freedom will win throughout all of Africa someday

On cold starry nights, I dream that no one will run

No one from the tip of the sun that slowly melts over the flat surface of the earth to the cold, dark moon that creeps in slowly every night

I wonder if the torturing flames of hunger and sickness could ever be washed away with a enormous wave of relief and freedom

I hope that we can get through in the end

I hope that everyone will finish with joyful hearts someday

To the end of my last days, I hope that we will end well as brothers and sisters

All together as one

I am Tanzania.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artist's Statement
By Graham Hill

My mask was an attempt for a symbolic
representation of Tanzania.
It was quite a challenge to find information
to symbolize! I am proud of it though.

The green around the edges represents the
farmland all across Tanzania. I know that's
generic, but I'm the only one who has it on
their mask. And that black triangle--
That is Mt. Kilimanjaro--tallest mountain
in Africa! The red/yellow at the top of the mountain
represents the importance of
the mountain to the
citizens of Tanzania. The
blue around it is the sky,
being pierced by the mountain.
The dark spots in the sky are birds,
representing Tanzania's plethora of wildlife.
The eight dots represent the fact
that 99% of Tanzania's population is native.
The silver cubes represent Tanzania's mineral
wealth. I hope you can appreciate my mask,
its symbolism and its pure artistic value.
