Chapter Summary

Long before Maji Maji conflict ceased, the Colonial Economic Committee was gathering evidence about its causes. This chapter explores in detail, beginning with a survey of what might be understood by a Ngindo collectivity in the later nineteenth century. It then embarks on a series of interlocking journeys through the Ungindo region. The chapter examines the events and strategies leading to the initial attacks on Madaba, Liwale and Mahenge, as the conflict spread beyond the Matumbi hills. Finally, the chapter looks at the reshaping of Ngindo demographics over the next four decades and places these in the context of other popular movements in the South that employed elements of the spiritual toolkit also employed in the 1905 conflict.
