From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Swahilization refers to one of two practices:
- the cultural assimilation of local peoples in Southeast Africa into the Swahili people and their culture.
- the post-independence promotion of the Swahili language by the governments of Southeast African former colonies as a national and official language, alongside a greater cultural assimilation policy of Africanization (see Julius Nyerere and Ujamaa).
