When I came back from my initiation on the mountains - 1 month 6 days, while everyone was showering me with gifts and all, one old lady gave me a box of snuff, and an old man gave me a box of matches. I still get extremely offended when people get shocked that I smoke this too! 
I have never drank because of friends, neither did I start smoking because of friends. I have always done what my body feels like doing.

I have always been isolated, that is why when I was growing up my 3 sisters would laugh at me because I would rather go sleep on the mountains with the initiates than having to make my bed.

They used to call me Tarzan - because the wilderness was my home. They call me uTyebelendle because I'm comfortable in the wilderness. How I choose to wander was my birth right... I have survived beasts in the forest from day one... Hiking and hunting - we never practice it as fitness routine, neither did we do it for sport! We hiked mountains as kids looking for our way back home, looking for food. 
Why wouldn't I survive being who I really am, and do the things I do without a shock and or a status tag line of "wow? You smoke that shit???"... I do... At least it's not a cigar I saw on DSTV cause I don't have one.

As Xhosa people we believe in uQamata, also known as Qamta and Quamta, is the head God of the Xhosa people in the south-eastern area of Africa. Qamata is the son of the Sun God Thixo, and the Earth Goddess Jobela.

For worship, small artificial heaps of stones were created. A traveller may often be seen adding a stone to a heap β€œfor Qamata” a token of good luck.

This is the legend of Qamata and Table Moutain:

When Qamata wanted to create dry land, the sea dragon Nkanyamba interfered. Qamata's mother, Jobela, created four giants to help him in work and battle Nkanyamba. When Qamata's task was completed and enough dry land had been recovered, the giants were turned to stone so they could continue to keep watch over the land. The southernmost of them, Umlindi Wemingizimu ("watcher of the south") became Table Mountain, near Cape Town, South Africa.

Umgcini wamasiko, custodian of culture #ladumangxokolo founder of multi award winning #maxhosa came by and 1 Qhumbu brooch wasn't enough. The top one was mine and I was wearing it, but the customer gets what he wants. Enkosi bhuti, siyabulela! Siyabonga!

Amagugu kaZulu:
The history and symbolism of #OohKhamba spin on amaQhumbu, earplugs symbolising the pubescent stage of being allowed to listen to adult conversation. Featured here are #OohKhamba handmade brooche's and earrings.
