African Culture

April 30 2014 African Culture Newsletter

Hi everyone,

I love stories! Even as an adult, stories remind us of our childhood and the simplicity of stories are refreshing in a world we complicate.

This week I thought it would be nice to look at a story from a tribe in southern Africa - the Ovambo. This is lovely story that explains the concept of Thunder and Lightning.

So, here is your latest article from the African Culture site at

How Thunder & Lightning Came to Live in the Sky
The Ovambo people from Northern Namibia and Southern Angola have for centuries told stories to explain how and why nature behaves the way it does. This is the story of Thunder and Lightning.

Please visit for even more great content about African Culture.

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about African Culture located here -

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
