From Forager to Citizen: Transitions for Rwanda's Twa
Graduate Student, CSU Chico
Ms. Kamanzi’s first trip to Rwanda piqued her curiosity regarding the Twa people and their life experiences. Their lives are very different compared to other groups in Rwanda. Ms. Kamanzi set out to answer the question: What created the stigma against the Twa and why have they been marginalized? Her research and this presentation focus on how the Twa have made the rapid transition from forest foraging to living in villages and cities as Rwandan citizens. Ms. Kamanzi is the first Chico State student to receive a Fulbright Scholarship.
