Tribal Peoples of Southern Africa





Tribal Peoples of Southern Africa


Barbara Tyrrell - T. V. Bulpin



Barbara Tyrrell's Tribal Peoples has become the bible of Southern African beaded tribal dress. Therein, she captured 24 vanishing Southern African tribes tribal traditions with detailed colorful paintings and illustrations including the Bhaca, Bushman (Kung), Cele, Herero, Hlubi, Fengu, Karanga, Leya, Lovedu, Lozi, Ndebele, Ngwane, Ovambo, Pedi, Pondo, Shangane, Sotho, Swazi, Tsonga, Tonga Venda, Xesibe, Xhosa and  Zulu



Tribal Peoples was first published in 1968. Drawings and watercolors were recorded between 1940 and 1960.





Barbara Tyrrell's meticulous accounts provide a rare and accurate record of dress and appearance among these peoples during the mid 20th century. She discusses the migrations, traditions, customs and above all, the strange and intricately patterned costumes of the tribal peoples of Southern Africa.






Barbara dedicated Tribal Peoples to her son Peter and to Killie Campbell saying;  because this book is inextricably hers as well as mine. Killie Campbell was her close friend, sponsor and a driving force behind Her African Quest.
