Kigezi is inhabited by a number of tribes; the majority Bakiga, Bahororo, Banyarwanda and the Batwa (Ngologoza, Wekipedia, Grace Garswell, Lindblade, Mulindwa-Rutanga, Kashambuzi, M M Edel). The Bakiga form the biggest tribe (Wikipedia, Grace Carswell, M M Edel, Turyahikayo-Rugyema). Because of this the Bakiga ways of life tend to bear a substantial influence over the other tribes. To serve this community therefore, it would be better for one to understand the characteristics of the community and how these characteristics have over time been influenced and shaped by the ever changing environment particularly colonialism and some chaotic regimes in Uganda.
