Population[edit]

Can a source be cited for the recent change of the population number from 800,000 to 2,000,000? — mark 18:20, 19 February 2006 (UTC)


2 million is not a tribe[edit]

Tribe seems to apply to Africa, but never to Europe, how can 2 million people be a tribe.?--217.42.172.17 (talk) 10:49, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

wachaga[edit]

Dear, I would like to know why wachaga were called so, where did the name originate from? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.222.56.185 (talk) 09:28, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Missing information on the (former) rites of initiation[edit]

The article contains close to no information on the Chaga's ancient rites of initiation, such as the famous anal plugging of males (or much rather, the roles and treatment of excrement amongst the genders in general). One potential source could be O. F. Raum's "Chaga Childhood", first published in 1939; its chapter "Female Initiation among the Chaga" is freely available here. -- 91.11.196.116 (talk) 17:32, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Chaga hut noadj.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Chaga hut noadj.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on November 8, 2010. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2010-11-08. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 00:38, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Hut of the Chaga people
A traditional hut of the Chaga people, Bantu-speaking indigenous Africans who live on the southern and eastern slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, as well as in the Moshi area. In agricultural exports, the Chaga are best known for their Arabica coffee, which is exported to American and European markets, resulting in coffee being a primary cash crop.Photo: Muhammad Mahdi Karim


Notable chaggans image[edit]

In the Notable Chaggans section, there's an image depicting several unnamed people with the caption "Various Notable Chaggans". Well, who are they? There's no further description, also on the image description page... Gestumblindi (talk) 03:55, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
