The Baganda Cultural Items: An Investigation of Baganda Identity in the 21st Century

Introduction

The Buganda Cultural Items form a set of material culture that are widely used and available throughout Buganda today that are considered by their users to be traditional. Through a series of interviews conducted in Buganda in 2002 and 2003 I investigated the nature of Cultural Items. This paper explores just one facet of the sphere of use and associations that are associated with Cultural Items; that is their relation to a perceived tradition. I will investigate the ways in which the various items are linked to a Baganda past and ask how the items function to support a Baganda identity in the modern world.
