Kaffir Culture

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Historians say that the Kaffirs of Sri Lanka started arriving from the eastern shores of Africa in the 1500s with the Portuguese, and later in more waves with the different colonizers of Sri Lanka.

Kaffir Culture is a video portrait of one such community of Kaffirs and the struggle to keep their culture alive in the face of falling numbers. Found at Vimeo from Kannan Arunasalam.
