Archaeology and the Construction of Identities in Past and Present Rwanda.
|dc.description.abstract||The political history of Rwanda has been marked by violence caused by racial and ethnic divisions between Bahutu and Batutsi. In 1994, between 800.000 and 1 million people were killed during the hundred days of genocide, mainly the ethnic minority Batutsi. The current government seeks to eradicate ethnic identities and replace these with a uniting, national identity. This thesis discusses the relationship between given political contexts, more specifically those of colonialism, independence and post-genocide, and interpretations of the past.||en_US|
