Into this land marched the Rhodesian Pioneers in 1890 to challenge Lobengula, King of the Ndebele nation. This Zulu tribe had only sixty years earlier seized it from the Shona. Into this mix of different tribes and cultures are added the Boers;the white tribe of Africa. These various groups are involved in many armed conflicts, and alliances are constantly changing. But in the end the Pioneers will prevail and create a country that will survive into the twentieth century.
